The Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has denied promising to marry any lady.
This was made known by Comrade Moses Olafare, Director, Media & Public Affairs of Ooni’s Palace, in a press statement, on Wednesday.
The statement reads:
“The attention of The Palace Of Ooni Of Ife has been drawn to a news of one Elizabeth Odunlami(miss) claiming to have been jilted by someone believed to be The Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II.
“While we sympatize with Miss Elizabeth Odunlami (if the identity is real) who obviously has become a victim of a fraudulent act perpetrated by a scammer disguising to be Ooni Ogunwusi, we find it pertinent to debunk this sacrilegious and unfounded allegation which is not unlikely to be another calculated ploy adopted by some unprovoked detractors using pseudo-identities.
“Good members of the public especially ladies are hereby cautioned against communicating with anyone presenting himself to be the Ooni Ogunwusi and swiftly report such a matter or person to the relevant security agencies.”
