Ooni of Ife oba ogunwusi will speak on crisis as at when due, says ‘marriage is a secret matter‘

Comrade Moses Olafare, the Director of Media and Public Affairs to his imperial majesty, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, said on Wednesday that the official reaction to the crashed marriage to former Olori Wuraola, would be made public soon.

Speaking in a telephone chat with the Nigerian Tribune, he stated that “in this era of social media, where people have free access to internet, as constitutionally permitted by laws of the land, people can say anything.”

“Inspite of all being said on the issue, decorum still requires that we in the House of Oduduwa maintains silence, at least for now.


“This is because marriage is strictly a private matter that should not be subjected to undue public uproar. When it is necessary for us to talk, we will surely talk on the issue,” Olafare said.
