Queen Silekunola Naomi, the wife of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has received a new car from the monarch hours after her divorce notice was spotted online.
According to PM News, the spokesperson of the Ooni of Ife, Moses Olafare confirmed the development on Friday.
Olafare claimed that the monarch who was participating in a three-day music program tagged, ‘Memorable Moments With Music’ at the Muson Centre, Lagos State, was not aware of any misunderstandings with his wife before he left the palace.
He further stated that Ooni was planning to return to his family when he saw the notice of the separation on social media.
Olafare said: “Marriage is a private affair between two spouses and the marriage will come with an agreement between the two and if the marriage is to be dissolved it will also come upon the agreement between the two, so to that effect, the palace is not aware of the separation between the Queen and Ooni of Ife because even Kabiyesi only saw it on social media like everybody.
“A night before yesterday when everyone went to bed there was no indication to warrant the reported separation of the marriage, in fact, that previous day was when Kabiyesi brought a brand new car to serve as a Christmas gift to the queen so if u are planning to separate with your wife tomorrow why will you buy a car for her today.
“And so it became a surprise to everyone including Kabiyesi when we saw what was reported on social media. The palace is unaware of this because there are traditional procedures to follow.
“I can confirm that there are no issues at all to warrant that, at least as at two days ago there was no indication at all, the car was delivered to her yesterday after she has written that thing she wrote. As I speak to you that car has been delivered to her. Everybody is still surprised and we remain surprised. Well, we are watching.”
