The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has raised alarm over ladies being duped by fraudsters who gave them assurances of facilitating marriage relationship with the monarch.
The monarch in a statement by his Spokesman, Moses Olafare advised young ladies to report whoever promised them marriage in his name to the security agencies immediately.
The respected monarch sympathized with one of the victims, Miss Elizabeth Odunlami who accused him of dating and jilting her and he denied any relationship with her.
The statement reads: “While we sympathize with Miss Elizabeth Odunlami who obviously has become a victim of a fraudulent 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 pseudo-identities.
“Members of the public, especially ladies are hereby cautioned against communicating with anyone presenting himself to be the Ooni Ogunwusi and advised to swiftly report such a matter or person to the relevant security agencies”.
It could be recalled that the social media was set ablaze when an alleged jilted lover, Elizabeth Odunlami accused the Ooni of Ife of abandoning her just a few days after he unveiled Olori Shilekunola Naomi as queen.
According to Elizabeth, Ooni of Ife not only promised her marriage but reportedly used her name for business transactions that ran into millions of dollars!
The Ijebu-born lady, who lives in New York and worked at the African Charities of America revealed that she would not have shared this on her social media page but the humiliation was too much to bear.
