The Palace of the Ooni Of Ife has refuted the news that the monarch, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and his queen, Prophetess Naomi Silekunola have gone their separate ways.
Rather, the Palace disclosed that the first-class monarch still loves his queen, Prophetess Naomi Silekunola, and is packaging a special gift for her.
Palace spokesman, Chief Moses Olafare, disclosed that “Separation is a two-way affair and not something that is announced by one party.
“The announcement of separation is subject to an agreement by both parties, so, to that extent, the palace is not aware of such separation because we all went to bed last night having the king and queen being together.
“So, if by this morning, the queen went to her social media to write that she is no longer in marriage with Ooni, we will look into it to see whether or not the Instagram page truly belongs to her, and to know the reason behind it.
“But as of today, at this moment, the palace is not aware of the separation.
“Marriage is a private affair. No matter how prominent the personalities involved, it is a private affair.
“We will dig deeper and know what happened but as I said, all of us just woke up to read about the separation on social media.
“Even by this time yesterday (Wednesday), Kabiyesi was still packaging a special gift for her.
“If you want to separate with someone, you cannot be packaging a gift for her.
“I am aware that Kabiyesi was putting special gifts for her for Christmas.
“If he is not in love with her, he cannot be doing that, only to wake up the following morning to hear from the public that she is no longer in the relationship.
“The Christmas gift has been delivered to her already.”
Recall that Queen Naomi had taken to her Instagram handle to announce her separation from the first-class monarch.
