Yesterday, we reported that an Ijebu woman based in the US, Elizabeth Odunlami, accused the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi of promising her marriage after using her for financial favours in the USA. Well, the royal highness has taken out time to respond to the accusations and to set the record straight.
In a statement coming from the palace, which was signed by the Director of Media and Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, it reads;
“While we sympathise with Miss Elizabeth Odunlami (if the identity is real) who obviously has become a victim of a fraudlent act perpetrated by a scammer disguising to be Ooni Ogunwusi, we find it pertinent to debunk this sacrilegious and unfounded allegation which is not unlikely to be another calculated ploy adopted by some unprovoked detractors using psseudo-identities.
Good members of the public especially ladies are hereby cautioned against communicating with anyone presenting himself to be the Ooni Ogunwusi and swiftly report such a matter or person to the relevant security agencies,”
The statement was puy out o Social Media on Wednesday.
