In a popular video with strippers, socialite Shola Oniru has admitted that he is the one and not Bukola Saraki, the former Senate President.
Shola issued an apology to the public and those connected to the viral video in a statement that was made public on Sunday.
Additionally, he emphatically admitted that he had been mistaken for Seni, the son of Saraki, the two-term governor of Kwara State, and issued an apology in that regard.
He urged people to respect his privacy and the privacy of those who might have been impacted by the video while denouncing the release of the video.
Additionally, he vowed to use all available legal means to bring those responsible for the video’s distribution to justice.
The statement read, “I, Shola Oniru am aware of a viral video circulating on the social media in which I am being mistaken for the son of the former Governor of Kwara State (and past President of the 8th Nigeria National Assembly) Dr. Olubukola Abubakar Saraki, MBBS, CON.
“This Public Notice is to correct this viral and false representation that has caused massive embarrassment to my family and the Saraki Family. I sincerely apologise to the former Governor, his son, the Saraki Family at large and my Family for the embarrassment and damage this episode has caused. The video was taken while I was at a private event with my friends and was never meant to be circulated.
“I condemn the circulation of the video and will explore all legal avenue to ensure those that circulated the video are brought to book.
“Finally, I implore the public to kindly respect the privacy of all persons that are affected by malicious circulation of the video.”
