The wife of the Ooni of Ife has vowed to institute legal actions against anyone who claims her marriage is on the verge of collapse due to her infidelity.
The Queen who reacted to the stories that have been making the rounds on the social media in the past three days said there were absolutely no truths in the allegations as they are not only absurd but complete falsehood bandied to tarnish her image.
In a statement released by her press secretary, Abraham Adedeji, the Olori said she will sue anyone associated with the claims as her marriage is very intact and she cannot descend so low as to cheat on her royal husband.
Read the full statement here:
"It has come to the attention of our office the slanderous rumors and sensationalist distortions about Her Majesty, Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi, through unnamed and unseen sources.
The sources are also citing deplorable claims involving Her Majesty Wuraola and that of prominent businessmen in Nigeria, all of whom are good friends of the King and Queen and financial contributors to projects that have advanced our good work in the communities of Ife and Nigeria as a whole.
We are deeply disturbed by these rumors and there is absolutely no truth to these absurd claims of infidelity and we vehemently deny them.
Due to the nature of the allegations and the attempt to defame the character of the Queen and embarrass well-respected friends of our Palace, we have immediately employed legal counsel to investigate their origin to take necessary action against the perpetrators.
Please be advised, that in this digital age, digital footprints can lead to your identification. We stand firmly together, in our commitment to our peace and the truth.
In the past few days, stories of crisis that has been brewing in the home of the Ooni and his Queen has been making the rounds, with many claiming that the marriage contracted in 2016 has broken down irretrievably due to actions on her part deemed not to be worthy of a Queen of her status.
