The spokesperson of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has said that the monarch learned of his separation from his wife, Olori Naomi, via social media just like every other person did.
Recall that on Thursday, December 23, the Queen took to her social media handles to announce her break-up with Oba Ogunwusi.
”I, at this moment, announce that I shall no longer be referred to as wife to the Ooni of Ife or as Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people and mother of my adorable Prince. Today, I announce the beginning of a new dawn and the close of a chapter. Today, I am a mother to God’s unique gift. I am no longer a slave to my thoughts of perfection”, she said
Reacting, the palace spokesperson in an interview with DailyTrust said the monarch was unaware of the reason why his wife took such a decision without any quarrel or prior discussion.
“Ooni of Ife was not aware of the separation. As at Wednesday evening, Kabiyesi arranged Christmas gifts for the Queen and the gift was delivered. Like other people, Ooni also read about the divorce in the media and it was a rude shock.”he said
