Quite shocking! Yesterday there were reports that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi’s marriage to his wife Olori Wuraola has crashed after just 17 months and now LIB had confirmed it.
A few weeks ago, the Ooni told his wife he was no longer interested in the marriage and asked her to leave. The former Olori has relocated from Osun state and now lives in Lagos.
Sources stated that the Olori hasn’t been totally loyal to the Ooni and thanks to them not courting for long before marriage, a few expectations were not met.
The Ooni married Olori Wuraola shortly after meeting her last year. According to sources close to the estranged couple, after he ascended the throne, a wife was needed asap and he was introduced to Wuraola, who at the time was with a Lebanese business man. But immediately the Ooni indicated interest to marry her, she quickly dumped the Lebanese man and went with the new Ooni.
“She was with this guy in February 2016, infact she had their photo on her Whatsapp DP and just the following month, in March, she was married to the Ooni. We were all surprised” a source close to the former Olori told LIB exclusively.
“They have been having issues for many months now. But the Ooni finally knew his marriage to Wuraola was nearing its end after they returned from London in March. It’s final. He’s done with the marriage but don’t be surprised if there’s a media battle betweem them, especially from the Olori” another source said.
As far as we know now, a new queen has been selected and will be announced in a few weeks. She is said to be Yoruba and wondering why so soon? A Yoruba king cannot be a bachelor.
