Bolton striker Marvin Sordell claimed he and several team-mates were abused during Saturday's 2-1 defeat at The Den.
Millwall and Bolton are investigating, and the Metropolitan Police say any complaint will be followed up.
And Shittu told Sky Sports News: "I've spoken to the chief executive and I know Millwall is a club that works so hard on fighting these kind of things.
"What people need to understand is that at any club you're going to have different people, different kind of views, people that do silly things.
"But this is my second spell here and I know that this is not a way at Millwall, it's something the club really stands up against.
"It's getting investigated now, and I'm sure if anything does come out they'll deal with it."
Shittu, currently in his second spell with Millwall, has also played against the Lions at The Den.
And the 32-year-old insists he has never been on the receiving end of racist taunts as an opposition player.
"When I did play against them, anybody will tell you that anybody who comes back to Millwall, it's a hard ground to play at," added Shittu.
"The fans really do get on your back, but personally I didn't really experience any racism from them.
"It is a hard place to come and play and you do get a lot of abuse, like you do at any club you go to.
"I didn't personally get any racist taunts or anything like that."
