– How She Allegedly Slapped Him In The Presence of His Father
– Why The Ogunwusi Family Cannot Forgive Her
Adebukunola Adebisi Ogunwusi, the first wife of Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has since returned to the United Kingdom.
Bukola (nee Bombata), returned to the UK, immediately after the coronation last December.
The ELITES gathered that the marriage between Ooni Ogunwusi and Bukola, was tottering on the brink of collapse, shortly before he decided to contest for the throne. According to insiders, the then Prince Ogunwusi’s decision to vie for the throne, was met a strident opposition from his wife.
Sources attributed the estranged marriage of Oba Ogunwusi and Bukola to many factors. One of such factors was the constant interference from the couple’s families. It was gathered that there a no-love lost relationship existed between Bukola and Oba Ogunwusi’s three sisters.
The crisis rocking the Ogunwusi’s union, which was consummated in 2007, reached a climax, when, Bukola, reportedly, slapped her husband during a family meeting.
The Ooni’s father, Prince Ropo Ogunwusi, who was witnessed what he considered to be a sacrilege, was said to be mortified beyond word.
Invariably, when Oba Ogunwusi eventually emerged as the new Ooni of Ife last October, his sisters did all they could to keep Bukola away from him. The ELITES gathered that when Bukola arrived at Ife, she was was not allowed to see her husband for many days. Sources disclosed that the family, surreptitiously, tried to hook the king up with a couple of ladies, but their effort didn’t yield any result.
At this juncture, Bukola, who had suspected she was about to be frozen out of the scene, approached some of her husband’s close friends. One of the people she approached, waded into the matter, pleaded with Oba Ogunwusi’s father to allow Bukola to be integrated into the coronation activities. It took a supreme effort on the older Ogunwusi’s part, before Bukola could be absorbed into the preparation. But no sooner had the coronation ended than Bukola returned to the United Kingdom.
The ELITES gathered that, in spite of their turbulent marriage, Oba Ogunwusi genuinely loves his wife. The chances of their coming back together is said to be very high.
