OONI: Olori Wuraola confirms marriage crash, reverts to maiden name



OONI: Olori wuraola confirms marriage crash, reverts to maiden name

Olori Wuraola on Wednesaday, through an instagram post, officially confirmed the end of her 17-month old marriage to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi.

In a statement titled, ‘The Ooni and I are No more’, she said, “We have got to stop this culture of shaming and vilifying women with false stories of infidelity & nefarious behavior.

“The spreading of false information (through “sources” afraid to be identified) is the mark of cowards and a cover up for guilty parties to justify their horrific actions. There is absolutely no truth to the media circulated lies of infidelity and infertility- on my end.

“What I can confirm, is that the Ooni and I are no more. I inhale love & exhale gratitude. My journey continues as a Humanitarian aiding women and victims of domestic violence & abuse with the United Nations. No matter how much time you’ve invested, no matter the use of media to silence & manipulate, no matter the circumstance, slander, embarrassment, threats and lies: Get out and seek immediate help!

“We’ve seen this movie before. Women being dragged in the press & blamed for everything under the sun. This behavior is unacceptable. I urge those involved to be mindful of their actions for the eyes of our Almighty God are always watching. The seeds of slander is a cancer that harvests to eat away the souls of the planter.
“The throne is sacred and the attempts to tarnish the name of a Queen, in defense or on behalf of a silent King makes all involved look terrible. Remain dignified in all you do. It’s not the end of the world, but the start of a new chapter and you must turn the page with grace. The world is watching.

“As I bid adieu to this chapter, my wish to you all is to step into your lives – boldly & fearlessly, the way God intended and live not just by words, but through example. The best chapter in our lives is the one we are writing now.

“Thank you for your love and support.
With peace, love & light, -Her Highness, Zaynab Otiti Obanor.

The former Queen, has also changed her name on instagram from Queen Wuraola -Zaynab Ogunwusi (@oloriwuraolaogunwusi) to Queen Zaynab-Otiti Obanor.

    I find this disgraceful, but as a King, I won’t say anything. Shame on him

      Because he’s a king that is why Adeyeye should be extremely responsible, I’ve never heard or read it anywhere that a king divorces his queen, NEVER! Did they not consult the oracle(s) before they married themselves? This is madness, I only pity the woman, because no one in this world will marry her again.

    This man is a disgrace and I’m beginning to doubt his capability of leading the entire Yoruba race as the Ooni. This is childishness o, the elders and other kings should better intervene and resolve their differences for them
