Nigerians react to claims that Ooni of Ife’s new wife is a married woman: ‘She is royalty now!’

Weeks ago, there were rumours spreading across the media that the new
wife of the Ooni of Ife, Olori Wuraola, was already married to a
Lebanese billionaire. The new Olori had been previously
married to two notable men which included the former governor of Jigawa
state, Saminu Turaki and was still legally married to a Lebanese man
name Eli Khoury.
However the marriage between Olori Wuraola, whose real
name is said to be Itohan Sonia Obanor, and Khoury reportedly crashed
last year although it is yet to be legally dissolved.

Yesterday, a Facebook user named Lola Sotola confirmed
the rumours that the new Olori was indeed still married to her
alleged Lebanese husband. He shared photos of Wuraola and the man, Eli
Khoury on his Facebook page and wrote: Is anything wrong for Ooni
Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi marrying another man’s wife?

Well, according to some reports, it isn’t strange or uncommon for the
Ooni to marry a woman who is already married to another man as long as
she was chosen by the Oracle. In addition, Ooni Adewusi’s sisters
recently disclosed during an interview that the new Olori had been
revealed to him by an Oracle. “Kabiyesi didnt meet her a long time, it was the oracle who revealed her to Kabiyesi. They never met before” they stated.

So far, Nigerians have shared mixed reactions to the news. While a
few had nasty things to say, the majority seem to support the Ooni’s new
bride and believe she will make a wonderful queen regardless of her
