Ooni Of Ife Marries New Wife After Alleged Divorce from Evangelist Silekunola

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has married a new wife identified as Mariam after his alleged divorce with estranged wife Evangelist Naomi Silekunola.

In a post credited to Adeyemi Sijuwade on Twitter, his new bride was welcomed to his palace on Tuesday night.

But before he was coronated king, Punch reports that the Ooni was previously married to Adebukola Bombata in 2008 but the marriage failed. As a monarch, the Ooni married Edo-born Zaynab-Otiti Obanor in 2016 but the union lasted for 17 months before their separation.

He later married Evangelist Naomi Silekunola in 2018 and the marriage produced a son before the divorce announcement in December 2021.

The monarch also had a daughter with Omolara Olatubosun as a teenager.

Olatubosun gave birth to Princess Adeola Ogunwusi but recently, there have been counter-claims between the Ooni and Olatubosun over who was responsible for the upbringing of their daughter.
