The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, last weekend, formally took for wife, Wuraola Itohan Sonia Otiti Zainab Obanor.
The new bride, Wuraola is from the Igun N’ Eromwon, the Benin Bronze Casters family.
The traditional wedding took place on Saturday, March 12, at the Benin City residence of the bride’s father, Mr. William Obanor, followed by a reception for guests at the Benin Hotel.

Although, Ooni Ogunwusi was conspicuously absent, he was ably represented by his family, led by his father, Prince Ropo Ogunwusi and his elder brother, Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi. The family paid the bride price at about after Wuraola was led out by family members with music provided by Inneh Theatre Troupe.

The bride later rode in a cream Limousine to the reception, which was chaired by the former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Femi Pedro.

In what may come as a surprise to most people, Wuraola had actually traveled down to Ile-Ife, to seek audience with the Oonirisa. The Ife monarch, who is known to have a weakness for fair ladies, upon seeing her, instantly fell in love with her. The rest, as they say, ended in their wedding last weekend.

Curiously though, the wedding ceremony between Ooni Ogunwusi and Wuraola has been mired in a staccato of scandals, ever before it took place last weekend.

imageThe scandal, predictably, centers around Wuraola’s marital status. According to sources, Wuraola’s, who is in her mid-30’s, was, until last December, married to a Lebanese, Elie Khouri.
The ELITES further gathered that Wuraola was also, more or less, married to Saminu Turaki, during his infamous tenure as the governor of Jigawa State. It was during the period of her affair with Turaki, that she adopted the Muslim name, Zaynab. Sources disclosed that Wuraola got pregnant and fleeced the self-acclaimed digital governor of millions of Naira. Unfortunately though, Wuraola later claimed she was delivered if a set of twins, who died at childbirth. However, Wuraola was reported to have dropped Turaki, the moment he ran into problem with EFCV, got broke and went into political oblivion. Till date, Turaki is yet to find his rhythm, politically and financially.

imageWuraola has also been linked with Ahmad Ningi, a former Senator, who represented Bauchi Central in the last dispensation and the former Deputy Majority Leader of the Senate. However, the authenticity of this claim remains in the realm of human conjectures.

Meanwhile, the pictures of Wuraola’s former husband, Elie Khour has since surfaced on the social media. Khour, who used to repair phones, met Wuraola when he relocated to Abuja to set up a night club.
