Aide: Ooni of Ife first saw Queen Naomi’s divorce notice on social media

One of the aides of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has revealed that the monarch first saw the divorce notice by his estranged wife, Prophetess Naomi Silekunola, on social media.

WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that Queen Naomi Silekunola has parted ways with the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II. The now ex-queen of Ile-Ife announced her divorce from the Ooni on Thursday morning, December 23, 2021.

The aide further disclosed that the monarch slept with the mindset of rejoining the ongoing musical programme, ‘Memorable Moments With Music’, expected to end today.

The aide who prefers to be anonymous said though there had been issues with Prophetess Naomi Silekunola and Ooni, the palace never expected such to lead to “a divorce that will first be heard on social media”.

According to the aide, the misunderstanding between the monarch and his wife had been resolved before the notice surfaced online.

He said, “It was shocking to all of us. We slept very late yesterday trying to ensure that the grand finale of the ‘Memorable Moments With Music’ goes well today in Lagos.

“All of a sudden, we just saw the news that Olori has divorced Ooni. We couldn’t even tell him (Ooni) but he already saw the news first on social media and started receiving calls.

“He told one of the chiefs that he was surprised to see the divorce notice on social media. I am not sure he wants the queen to go.

“Even Moses (Olafare) – Ooni’s Chief Press Secretary – initially denied the news when journalists called him. He thought it was fake news. We sincerely thought the issues had been resolved. It’s painful.”

When asked if Ooni will still attend the music programme, he replied, “doubtful”.
