Prophetess Silekunola Naomi received a new car as a Christmas gift from her husband, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, hours before her divorce was announced.
This was disclosed by the Spokesperson for Ooni of Ife, Mr. Moses Olafare today, December 24, 2021.
Recall that The News Beam had earlier reported that the Queen had taken to her official Instagram account to declare that she is no longer to be called the wife to the Ooni of Ife or the Queen of Ile-Ife, hinting at separation from her husband the Ooni.

Speaking with P.M News, Olafare, however explained that the post came as a rude shock and a big surprise for the Ooni and the palace in general.
He said: “Marriage is a private affair between two spouses and the marriage will come with an agreement between the two and if the marriage is to be dissolved it will also come upon the agreement between the two, so to that effect, the palace is not aware of the separation between the Queen and Ooni of Ife because even Kabiyesi only saw it on social media like everybody.
“A night before yesterday when everyone went to bed there was no indication to warrant the reported separation of the marriage, in fact, that previous day was when Kabiyesi brought a brand new car to serve as a Christmas gift to the queen so if u are planning to separate with your wife tomorrow why will you buy a car for her today.
“And so it became a surprise to everyone including Kabiyesi when we saw what was reported on social media. The palace is unaware of this because there are traditional procedures to follow.
“I can confirm that there are no issues at all to warrant that, at least as at two days ago there was no indication at all, the car was delivered to her yesterday after she has written that thing she wrote. As I speak to you that car has been delivered to her. Everybody is still surprised and we remain surprised. Well, we are watching.”
