Ajiboye began his career with Prime F.C., and in September 2008 joined Wikki Tourists F.C. After one year with Wikki Tourists, where he played 14 games, he left on 16 September 2009 to sign with the Spanish club Pontevedra CF. After being released from Pontevedra in November 2011, he signed the next month with Shooting Stars. After 3SC's relegation in 2013, he signed to play for Nasarawa United. However, transfer issues kept him from playing until two months in the new season.


Ajiboye represented his homeland at the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup in the Korea Republic, winning the championship with the Golden Eaglets. On 15 December 2008 he was called for the Nigerian under-20 team for the 2009 African Youth Championship in Rwanda and was a member of the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.

He was Nigeria's starting goalkeeper for the 2012 Olympic qualifiers and All Africa Games qualifiers under coach Augustine Eguavoen.

Age controversy

Prior to the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup, a reporter discovered that Ajiboye was 12 years older, married and had two kids with his wife expecting his third child, a fact that was already known by the Secretary-General of the Nigerian Football Federation.

In 2015, Ajiboye stated that he learned a lot from Peter Rufai and questions about his age were brought again since he was a young child during Rufai's last years as a goalkeeper.
