Just 17 months after his marriage to Olori Wuraola, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi is reportedly planning on marrying another wife.
LIB reports that the Ooni’s marriage to Olori Wuraola has crashed, and is 100% true.
The Ooni had reportedly asked his wife to leave his palace in Osun state last week and she is now based in Lagos.
Why the marriage crashed is a mystery to many and we gathered from close sources to the couple that the Ooni married the queen shortly after meeting her last year.
She was said to be with a Lebanese guy but left the guy after the Ooni showed interest in marrying her. A source said:
“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”
“The funny thing is; the Ooni was advised not to marry her. Former president Obasanjo himself, who regards the Ooni highly, advised him to marry someone else but the Ooni turned a deaf ear to his plea. She had been married before to a former governor and a Lebanese man and so many of his inner circle friends wanted another woman for him but he was adamant.”
More reports showed the Olori went to former president Obasanjo after the Oba told her he was no longer interested in their marriage. But as expected, Obasanjo didn’t do much. The source adds that Olori had married the king with high expectations but started acting when her expectations were being cut short.
“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. While there, he suspected the Olori was not 100% loyal to him after he saw some text messages on her phone. I wish I could go into details of what he saw. Before then, she had done so many things, including traveling abroad to be by herself, and many other things that the Ooni was bitter about” the source continued.
On why the Ooni declared his love for the queen during her last birthday on Instagram if he had intentions of quitting the marriage. The Ooni on his page wrote: “Happy birthday to my beautiful wife, my queen. I pray on this day you continue to increase in strength, grace and wisdom. I love you very much”
The source said:
“Everyone who knows the Ooni knows he would never write that kind of message publicly. We know him. He himself was surprised to see the message online on her birthday but didn’t react not to embarrass her. The Olori wrote the message herself and posted it on his IG page. I can assure you that message was not from the Ooni”
The source adds that the Ooni told his wife to leave shortly after she staged a walk against domestic violence. He also informed her parents of his intentions two weeks after.
“It’s final. He’s done with the marriage but don’t be surprised if there’s a media storm between them, especially from the Olori. She sent him a long scathing text message threatening fire and brimstone and called him unprintable names but the Ooni is not fazed. We expect him to get a new wife soon.”
