When asked to confirm whether she and Phillip were engaged, Ruth said, “We are keeping that confidential till the right time. The relationship is serious.
“Even if it doesn’t work out, it is fine, at least I will know that I had a man who loved me and discussed a future with me.
“I will feel the way a woman feels when she is loved by a man. I will feel fulfilled that a man once came for me.”
Reacting to the viral Post, Phillip via his Facebook page, said he never had any relationship or “business in common” with the lady, describing her as a “clout chaser.
“Sequel to the viral posts on social media platforms ignited by one Miss Innocent Ruth on the 12th of March, 2023 about a fake engagement with me, I hereby disclaim the viral post and want the general public to note that I have no business in common with her as she’s just a clout chaser.
“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 (sic),” he said.
