Ooni of Ife Debunks “Sacrilegious” Allegations that He Had Extramarital Affair

Just days after the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, revealed his new Olori, Moronke Naomi Silekunola Ogunwusi (now the new Yeyeluwa Oodua), he has been accused of having extramarital affair with a woman who claims he promised her marriage.

Drama started after a woman identified as Elizabeth Odunlami took to Facebook, to claim that the monarch promised her marriage and used her name for business transactions.

The post stirred heated reactions, and it wasn’t long before the Ooni of Ife’s palace’s director, media & public affairs, Moses Olafare, published a statement shutting down the claims they have described as “sacrilegious.”

It said, according to Vanguard:

“While we sympathise with Miss Elizabeth Odunlami (if the identity is real) who obviously has become a victim of a fraudlent act perpetrated by a scammer disguising to be Ooni Ogunwusi, we find it pertinent to debunk this sacrilegious and unfounded allegation which is not unlikely to be another calculated ploy adopted by some unprovoked detractors using psseudo-identities.

Good members of the public especially ladies are hereby cautioned against communicating with anyone presenting himself to be the Ooni Ogunwusi and swiftly report such a matter or person to the relevant security agencies.”
