Former Olori Wuraola’s Family Finally Returns Bride Price To Ooni Of Ife (Details Inside)
The family of the former Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi in Benin has returned her bride price back to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, finally officially annulling the marriage between their daughter and the king, new reports have alleged.
According to a source confirmed that the king was implored by a comity of elders to accept the price he paid so as to severe all marital ties amicably.
It was said that the Ooni of Ife was initially reluctant, but finally acceded. “She is free now,” he was quoted to have said after accepting the price.
This is the report:
The coast seems clear now for Queen Zynab, the former wife of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi to begin a new life and remarry if she so wishes as reports reaching us indicate that elders of her family have returned her bride price.
The Boss Newspaper gathered that elders of the Otiti family of Benin as is customary, returned the bride price as is customary during the week and it was a strictly hush-hush family affair.
According to a source in Benin, The Ooni was at first reluctant but was persuaded by the elders as a way of closing the controversial marriage and separation… The OONI was quoted to have exclaimed that “she’s free now, she’s free…”
The elders had sued for amicable settlement instead of a rough separation. Both families appeared relieved about this final foreclosure of the marriage that lasted less than two years.
