Ooni Of Ife Marries 25-Year Old Prophetess

 There was jubilation at Ile Odua, Ooni’s palace at Ile Ife, the cradle of the Yoruba race when the foremost Yoruba traditional ruler, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II remarried.

The marriage, which however coincided with the 44th birthday celebration of the traditional ruler, added pomp and pageantry to the unique event, especially among the palace officials and priests.

A reliable source told Saturday INDEPENDENT that the marriage introduction was held at the bride’s family in Akure, Ondo State on Thursday while the monarch celebrated his 44th birthday anniversary on Wednesday.

The traditional introductory programme, it was gathered, was not elaborate for reasons not made public by the palace as only the palace officials and traditional priests were allowed to attend the event.

Shortly after the introduction held at Akure, the Olori travelled along with the monarch to Ile-Ife where the celebration continued until the monarch himself broke the news in his official Twitter handle on Thursday.
