Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, and his wife of 16 months, Olori Wuraola Zaynab Otiti Ogunwusi, snubbed one another at the airport in Lagos on Saturday, August 12, 2017, encomium.ng was reliably informed.
The shocking scenario left many mopping as the royal couple avoided each other on their way to Abuja for a function.
Olori Wuraola was already in Lagos, while the Ooni arrived from Ile Ife (Osun state).
Both were attending the same event, but the misunderstanding between them was already unrestrained as they had been living apart for many days.
The Lagos airport scene, encomium.ng gathered, exposed the marital troubles of the King and his Benin princess wife to those outside the palace for the first time. And those sharp enough knew a serious tiff was afoot.
That Saturday, August 12, Olori Wuraola was in the lounge first. And as Ooni arrived, she avoided him. When the King realised his Queen was in the lounge, he also didn’t make any move to talk to her or exchange pleasantries. And both parted without acknowledging each other.
And two days later, on Monday, August 14, rumours of their marriage troubles flooded the internet with many reasons advanced for the estrangement.
Though denials had been issued by the palace and Olori Wuraola’s press secretary, it is clear that a lot is not being said as stories of a new wife grow wings…
