There have been speculations that the former Olori of Ife would be unable to remarry since her marriage to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi crashed.

In a post published by Ashefon, it was alleged that Oba Adeyeye has been refunded the customary bride price he paid by the elders of Obanor’s family in Edo state.

It was also reported that the Ooni refused to collect the bride price but he was later persuaded by the elders to receive it and put the controversy to bed.

The Ooni was allegedly quoted as saying: “She’s free now, she’s free.”

According to a source, the refund of the bride price was important because it holds a meaningful value in Yoruba tradition.
