Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, finally addressed and denied the rumors surrounding the end of his marriage, through his media aide – Moyinoluwa Oluwaseun.
There have been reports claiming that, his queen, Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi had gone to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and appealed to him for wisdom and intervention since she feared that her husband, the Ooni, had planned to divorce her. All to no avail.
The Ooni married former Wuraola Obanor in a traditional marriage, complete with pomp and circumstance, in her home in Benin, Edo State, on March 12th, 2016. As tradition often demands, the Ooni was absent during the marriage ceremony. The 42 year old Ooni, was represented by his father, HRH Omooba Oluropo Ogunwusi.
The monarch insists, his marriage to Olori Wuraola Zainab Ogunwusi, is stronger and happier than ever.
There has been a lot of speculation, involving certain unseemly activities Olori Wuraola allegedly participated in, outside the sanctity and comfort of her marriage. The Olori, in her own defense, has responded to these sensational accusations through her press secretary, Abraham Adedeji, claiming that, the deplorable information involving various prominent businessmen and her Majesty Wuraola, are nothing but very salacious lies.
Mr. Adedeji added that, most of the people the Olori allegedly was involved with, are really, very good friends and financial contributors that have helped in the advancement and expansion of the projects in the communities of Ile – Ife and Nigeria, as well.
Olori Wuraola has also promised to prosecute to the fullest extent, all those who continue to perpetrate outrageous untruths, surrounding the state of her marriage.
