Seyi Tinubu Denies Alleged Fight with Chief Security Officer and Ban from Presidential Villa

Seyi Tinubu Addresses Controversial Report

Seyi Tinubu, the son of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has come forward to refute recent reports suggesting that he engaged in a physical altercation with his father’s Chief Security Officer (CSO), Fasasi Adeboyega.

He also denied claims of being banned from attending meetings in the Presidential Villa.

Origins of the Controversy

The controversy began when a report by Jackson Ude, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, surfaced on X. Ude alleged that Seyi Tinubu had a dispute with the CSO, stemming from his attempt to gain access to a high-level security meeting involving Bola Tinubu.

Details of the Alleged Altercation

According to the report, Seyi Tinubu was supposedly banned from participating in any meetings within the Villa, including those of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

The alleged altercation with the CSO was said to have occurred when Seyi attempted to enter a security briefing meeting involving his father. The CSO, Fasasi Adeboyega, prevented his entry, leading to a confrontation.

Seyi Tinubu’s Response

Seyi Tinubu took to his Instastories to address the controversy and shared a screenshot of Jackson Ude’s X handle. He labeled the report as “fake,” indicating that he disputes the claims made in the report.


Seyi Tinubu’s denial of the alleged altercation and ban from Presidential Villa meetings brings a different perspective to the controversial report. While the details surrounding the incident remain disputed, Seyi maintains that the claims are not accurate.
