Obasanjo, who accused the Awujale and Paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Dr. Sikiru Kayode Adetona of rumour mongering in his response to some allegations levelled against him in Awujale Autobiography titled “Awujale: The Autobiography of Alaiyeluwa Oba S. K. Adetola, Ogbagba II”, also cleared the air on his alleged affair with Biola Okoya.

He said, “It is not only in the case of Obajana Cement that you were rumour-mongering about me. You have done that repeatedly on many occasions. The latest one you did in 2016 was you telling me that you heard that I had gone to Rasak Okoya to seek to marry her daughter, Abiola, when it was the girl that came to appeal to me to intervene to placate and appeal to her father to forgive her for all her misbehaviour to her father. I did and the father and daughter were reconciled.

“I told you even then that it was unbecoming of an Oba. Of course, I am used to such rumours, slandering and insinuations since my days as a Unit Commander in the Army and I have developed thick skin.”

Biola, a mother-of-two, and divorcee, is the fun-loving daughter of Eleganza boss, Rasaq Akanni Okoya. Until recent time she was a common face in the party circuit.
