Shola Oniru

Socialite Prince Shola Oniru has apologised to the family of former Senate President Bukola Saraki after he was mistaken for the son of the politician in an X-rated video.

When the video of Oniru spraying dollar notes on strippers went viral on Friday, several Twitter users claimed it was Seni Saraki who is the chairman of the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Football Club.

In a statement released on Sunday, Oniru admitted being the one in the video, not Seni.

He also apologised to the general public and those affected by the viral video, saying he would be taking legal action against the originators of the video.

His 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.”
