•Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi


The palace is yet to be formally notified of Prophetess Naomi Silekunola’s separation from the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, it was learnt on Thursday.

A spokesman, Moses Olafare, said the palace had not yet been informed of her decision.

Naomi had announced that she no longer wanted to be addressed as the Queen of Ile-Ife.

When contacted on Thursday, Olafare said: “The palace is not aware of the decision of Olori.

“Kabiyesi has not briefed me on the matter but I will get back to you soon.”

Prophetess Naomi Silekunola, in a statement posted on her verified Instagram handle @queen_silekunolanaomi_ogunwusi on Thursday morning, said she should no longer be addressed as the Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people.

She said: “I bless the Lord almighty for His faithfulness in the last three years of my marriage. In life’s journey, it isn’t how far.

“Still, how well, indeed though Satan should buffet if trials should come, I have this blessed assurance controlling all situations and saying to me it is well with my soul.

“Certainly, it is well. I made my journey into the ancient throne of Ife with faith in my heart and love for the keeper of it.

“Few impressions I would love to correct. If anyone knows otherwise, they are free to come up with facts.

“Let it be known that this decision to move on did not come because his majesty is married to another queen.

“As many would love to assume, throughout our life as a couple, I was the only married wife to him. There were side attractions, but it was never an issue.

“I never approached him with any revelation of any sort, as many believed he contacted me first and made his proposal known several months later. (The Nation)
