Ooni of Ife’s sisters deny choosing queens for monarch

Written by Ade

The three sisters of Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, the Ooni of Ife, have denied being responsible for interfering with the private affairs of the monarch.

The sisters, in a statement titled, Ooni Royal Sisters, and signed by Princess Folashade Ogunwusi-Fadairo, on behalf of the Royal Sisters & families on Tuesday, said they were tired of the campaign of calumny against them by media houses and online publications over this insinuation. They threatened to sue any media house or online publishing outfit that links them with the recent marital tribulations of the monarch.

The sisters said they were tired of “the campaign of calumny presently ongoing in many media blogs, media houses, on the social media and by hatchet jobbers against our family targeting us, the sisters of the Ooni of Ife as being the cause of any or all forms of misunderstanding or ‘imaginary problems’ in the Palace.

The full statement is below:

“We refer to the campaign of calumny presently ongoing in many media blogs, media houses, on the social media and by hatchet jobbers against our family targeting us, the sisters of the Ooni of Ife as being the cause of any or all forms of misunderstanding or ‘imaginary problems’ in the Palace. These despicable humans have been circulating the ‘fake’ news on various fake media outlets on matters none of them has an inkling of but will like to speak with unreserved authority.

“In his immense wisdom, Kabiyesi from inception has separated the entire family from the activities of ruling our people forthrightly without any hindrances. His selection of who should be his Olori’s is also done without any form of hegemony or disturbance from any of us or the family. We support our Olori/s and have kept away from any of the matters concerning the private.”
