The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has reacted to his estranged wife, Prophetess Naomi Silekunola, who announced their separation on Instagram on December 23.
In a statement uploaded on her verified Instagram handle @queensilekunolanaomiogunwusi, the 28-year-old prophetess declared the termination of her three-year marriage to the Ooni.
On his official Facebook page (Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi – Ojaja II), the Monarch, in what appears to be a veiled response to the trending debate, asked everyone to “reach out to neighbors, especially those who haven’t had it easy throughout the year.”
The Monarch wrote:
“I join all and sundry in the joyous occasion of this particular season. As we all know it’s one of joy, celebrations and a deep reflection on what Olódùmarè has done through the year.
As we do take time to celebrate with our families and loved ones, I implore you to reach out to your neighbours, especially those who haven’t had it as easy through the year.
It is my prayer that you’ll continue to find strength to celebrate in joy, peace, and abounding love which is the bedrock of this special occasion.
Royal blessings from the House of Oduduwa and compliments of the season.”
