The King of Ile-Ife, Arole Oodua, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has officially received his new Queen at the palace on Thursday 18th October 2018. Her Majesty, Olori Moronke Naomi Silekunola Ogunwusi is the new Yeyeluwa Oodua. According to the spokesperson, the marriage rights were done privately in Akure, Ondo State and she was later received at the Ooni’s palace.
The monarch also took to social media on Thursday to express his joy. He wrote, “I waited patiently upon the Almighty the King of kings, he eventually did it during many trials. “Shilekunola, Moronke, Naomi; the greatest Arsenal you can apply on this highly revered throne with many rules and regulations in the midst of undiluted tradition, heritage and culture is the “Fear of God In You”. “It is the beginning of your wisdom on this throne of Oduduwa. You are welcome home my beautiful and adorable queen”.
The development comes more than a year after his former wife, Zaynab Otiti-Obanor, confirmed that their 17-month-old marriage had ended. The new wife who is said to be in her 20’s is an evangelist and the founder of a gospel ministry in Akure, Nigeria.
In other unrelated issues, the Royal house through its Director, Media and Public Affairs of the palace, Comrade Moses Olafare, has alerted the public to be beware of fraudsters using Ooni’s name to solicit donations. Having received countless reports on fraudulent activities of some unscrupulous individuals who have been swindling gullible members of the society disguising in the name of Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, we hereby make this public announcement to caution the general public against the nefarious antics deployed by these sacrilegious criminals especially through social media platforms which they have created to dupe people.
Apart from the House of Oduduwa Foundation and its offshoot which is Hopes Alive Initiative(HAI), people are advised to properly check from the palace before to avoid donations to wrong accounts as Kabiyesi has no association with any charity called “Ooni Outreach Foundation” and any similar group claiming to be raising funds on behalf of Ooni to care for the needy.
