The palace of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has expressed shock and surprise at the announcement from Olori Naomi’s Instagram page on her separation from her husband, the Ooni of Ife, adding that they are probing possible hacking of her social media accounts.

While denying the knowledge of the report that the marriage between the monarch and his wife was over, the Director of Media and Strategy, Ooni’s palace, Moses Olafare, said as of Wednesday evening, the king and Olori Naomi went to bed as husband and wife.

According to him, separation in marriage cannot be done by one of the parties, stressing that probe will be launched into whether or not, her Instagram page was hacked.

Olafare was quoted to have said, “Separation is a two-way affair, it is not something that is announced by one party. The announcement of separation is subject to agreement by both parties.

“The palace is not aware of such separation because we all went to bed on Wednesday night, the two being the king and queen.”

“Everybody is in a sober mood. The issues we heard could cause the divorce are reconcilable. We learnt Ooni is not aware of the divorce too”, the Elders’ team spokesperson said.
