Yesterday there were reports that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi’s marriage to his wife Olori Wuraola has crashed after just 17 months and we can tell you authoritatively that this is true.
A few weeks ago, the Ooni told his wife he was no longer interested in the marriage and asked her to leave. The former Olori has relocated from Osun state and now lives in Lagos. So what led to the marriage break up? Here’s all we know and this is authoritative.
The Ooni married Olori Wuraola shortly after meeting her last year. According to sources close to the estranged couple, after he ascended the throne, a wife was needed asap and he was introduced to Wuraola who at the time was with a Lebanese business man. But immediately the Ooni indicated interest to marry her, she quickly dumped the Lebanese man and went with the new Ooni. “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” a source close to the former Olori told LIB exclusively “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” the source continued.
We gathered that the Olori still ran to the same Obasanjo for help and advise when the Ooni threatened to marry another wife. Obasanjo didn’t do much according to what we gathered.
According to another source, Olori Wuraola and the Ooni didn’t court for long and didn’t really know themselves that well before getting married. And she went into the marriage with high expectations from the new Ooni but when those expectations were not met, she allegedly started to act up. “They have been having issues for many months now. But the Ooni finally knew his marriage to Wuraola was over when they returned from London in March.
