Ooni refutes claim of US based lady who says he promised her marriage




The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has denied a claim made by a US based lady identified as Elizabeth Odunlami who said the monarch promised her marriage but ditched her at the last minute.

According to the Ooni via a statement issued by the palace’s director, media & public affairs, Moses Olafare, the allegations by Elizabeth are false and unfounded.

The statement by Ooni reads in full; “While we sympathise with Miss Elizabeth Odunlami (if the identity is real) who obviously has become a victim of a fraudulent 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 pseudo-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.”

Elizabeth had earlier taken to her Facebook page to accuse the Ooni of dumping her after promising to marry her (a message she has since deleted) accusing the monarch of leaving her after a long term relationship for Olori Naomi whom the Ooni got married to last Thursday.
