Ooni Of Ife Debunks Rumour That He Had Extra Marital Affairs

Published

on

Few days back, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, got married to a new Olori, Moronke Naomi Silekunola Ogunwusi (now the new Yeyeluwa Oodua).

Just days after the marriage, the king has been accused of having extramarital affair with a woman who claimed that he promised to marry her.

The drama started when a woman identified as Elizabeth Odunlami took to Instagram to claim that her name was used for business transactions and the king promised her marriage.

The post stirred reactions, and the Ooni of Ife’s palace’s director, media & public affairs, Moses Olafare, has published a statement on the claims, describing it as “sacrilegious.”

It said, according to Vanguard:

“While we sympathise with Miss Elizabeth Odunlami (if the identity is real) who obviously has become a victim of a fraudlent act perpetrated by a scammer disguising to be Ooni Ogunwusi, we find it pertinent to debunk this sacrilegious and unfounded allegation which is not unlikely to be another calculated ploy adopted by some unprovoked detractors using psseudo-identities.

Good members of the public especially ladies are hereby cautioned against communicating with anyone presenting himself to be the Ooni Ogunwusi and swiftly report such a matter or person to the relevant security agencies.”
