 The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, was in a rude shock over the sudden decision of his Queen, Olori Silekunola Naomi, to divorce him.

 The Palace spokesman, Moses Olafare, disclosed this in a telephone conversation with Daily Trust on Thursday evening.

 The Queen took to her verified Facebook and Instagram handles and announced her break-up with Oba Ogunwusi. 

 She said, “I, at this moment, announce that I shall no longer be referred to as wife to the Ooni of Ife or as Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people and mother of my adorable Prince.

 “Today, I announce the beginning of a new dawn and the close of a chapter. Today, I am a mother to God’s unique gift. I am no longer a slave to my thoughts of perfection”, she said.

 But the palace spokesperson said the monarch was unaware of the reason why his wife took such a decision without any quarrel or prior discussion.

 “Ooni of Ife was not aware of the separation. As at yesterday (Wednesday) evening, Kabiyesi arranged Christmas gifts for the Queen and the gift was delivered. Like other people, Ooni also read about the divorce in the media and it was a rude shock.”
