The Gods Are Not To Blame: Between The Ooni Of Ife And His Olori by mr1759: 8:47am On Oct 20, 2017
Since news of the estrangement of the Ooni of
Ife, Oba AdeyeyeOgunwusi, and his doe-eyed,
beautiful wife, OloriWuraola, filtered out,
blogosphere has been abuzz and awash with
salacious conjectures and permutations on what
could have led to the reported crisis in a union
contracted in March 2016. In a statement
signed by the Ooni’s media aide, Comrade
Moses Olafara, the traditional ruler said, “There
is no truth to the news; it is unimaginable. The
palace is not interested in this rumour as there
are lots of positive activities happening every
minute so we don’t have time to respond to
such noise being created by nonentities.”
The Olori also caused a statement to be issued
Tuesday by her Press Secretary, Abraham
Adedeji, wherein she debunked the reports. “We
are deeply disturbed by these rumours and
there is absolutely no truth to these absurd
claims of infidelity and we vehemently deny
Due to the nature of the allegations and the
attempt to defame the character of the Queen
and embarrass well respected friends of our
palace, we have immediately employed legal
counsel to investigate their origin to take
necessary action against the perpetrators.” For
more discerning observers, it is not the reported
separation that rankles; it is that for an-all
powerful monarch who understands the place
and potency of tradition and who had reportedly
been foretold not to dabble into the union, why
did the Ooni go ahead? Other reports posit that
even former President OlusegunObasanjo
warned the Ooni not to settle for OloriWuraola
whose original name is Sonia and hails from
Edo State. Quite popular on the social scene
before meeting the Ooni, OloriWuraola was
reportedly married to a Lebanese-French
businessman, ElieKhouri, but quickly dumped
him when the Ooni came with his marriage
They barely courted. About 17months after the
elaborate solemnization of the union, with no
kid yet or sign of pregnancy, the braggadocio of
love has withered, reality has now dawned on
both parties. As news of their alleged separation
made the rounds, a couple of prominent
Nigerians were mentioned as having bucked and
clawed with the Olori even while married to the
monarch. Unthinkable sacrilege, you’d say.
OloriWuraola has denied the allegations. No
wonder, two prominent billionaire businessmen,
TundeAyeni, former chairman of Skye Bank, and
DapoAbiodun, Heyden Petroleum boss, who was
erroneously thought to be the DapoAbiodun
mentioned in the reports, have come out to
vehemently deny any assignation with the Olori.
Being Yoruba men, with deep affinity to their
roots, it is unimaginable that they would ever
have intruded into the Ooni’s exclusive sanctum
of elixir. While the Olori had allegedly vacated
the palace and had not been sighted in public
with her beau, the Ooni, it is being speculated,
might have settled for a new bride. But as
traditional ruler, his forefathers had many wives.
So this may only be a storm in a teacup.

I am from Edo land the cradle of black civilization and origin

any woman who is married to an oba live in a secure place in the palace without trespass

any queen in our Oba's palace do not live a cinematographic life , eg I often see in the Western Nigeria a queen in alafin palace, ooni palace taking selfy inside the king palace ,
y wouldn't they misbehave.

how can queen pack out of the palace? I have never heard of it, which gate did she pass thru.

in all no matter how they try to fight the truth
Oba of Benin remain the only king the rest are chiefs
