Ruth alleged that they fell in love after they met at the orientation camp, and their relationship has been waxing strong since then.
Phillip Ayobami, an ex-corps member who was seen posing with a diminutive lady, Ruth Innocent, at an NYSC orientation camp in photos that recently made the rounds online, has denied her claims of being in a relationship with him.
Ruth became an internet sensation after she took to her Facebook page on Tuesday, March 14, to share photos of herself and Philip that were taken at the Bayelsa State orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps and claimed they were an item.
News of their alleged relationship quickly went viral, and the supposed unique love story was reposted on different social media platforms.
However, in a quite shocking twist, the man in the photos, Phillip Ayobami, has revealed via his Facebook page that he and Ruth never had any relationship.
He described Ruth as a clout chaser who put up the post for social media attention.
“In view of the above, I want to categorically state that I and Innocent Ruth met in the year 2021 at Kayama NYSC orientation camp (Bayelsa State) where we were brought together as the tallest and shortest corps members as part of activities by the NYSC to create fun in camp.
“We never had any relationship during and after the orientation camp. It been two years those photos were taken and I haven’t set my eyes on her for over two years now (sic).
“I hereby advice Innocent Ruth to take down the post from all her social media platforms else face legal action”, he wrote.
