Breaking: Ife elders move to reconcile Ooni, Prophetess Naomi
Ile Oodua elders are making a last-minute move to reconcile the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and his estranged wife, Prophetess Naomi Silekunola.
Sources in the palace informed The PUNCH that some of the elders have contacted Prophetess Naomi in a bid to reconcile their differences.
It was learnt that the elders’ team comprised of traditional rulers and members of Ife community.
“The babas (elders) are meeting on it. We pray that they can reconcile them,” one of the tour guides in the palace confided in our correspondent.
“Everybody is in a sobber mood. The issues we heard could cause the divorce are reconcilable. We learnt Ooni is not aware of the divorce too.”
When asked about some of the elders making the reconciliation move, he said, “No, they asked us not to talk,” and cut the phone.
As of the time of filing this report, it could not be ascertained if the reconciliation was successful.
