Breaking: Barely 24 Hours After Divorce Notice, Ooni Buys New Car For Estranged Queen Naomi 

Published

on

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, bought a new car as a Christmas gift for his wife, Prophetess Queen Silekunola Naomi, hours before a divorce notice surfaced on social media.

Mr. Moses Olafare, the Spokesperson for Ooni of Ife, confirmed the development to P.M. News on Friday.

Olafare also confirmed that Queen Naomi received the car after the divorce notice surfaced on social media.

Olafare said Ooni of Ife, who was participating in a three-day music program tagged, ‘Memorable Moments With Music’ at the Muson Centre, Lagos State, was not aware of any misunderstandings with his wife before he left the palace.

He confirmed that the monarch was simply looking forward to returning home to his family only to see the reported separation on social media.

Olafare 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.”

Queen Naomi had yesterday declared that her marriage with Ooni of Ife was over.

The evangelist wrote, “Today I announce the beginning of a new dawn and the close of a chapter. Today, I am a mother to God’s unique gift. I am no longer a slave to my thoughts of perfection. I, at this moment, announce that I shall no longer be referred to as wife to the Ooni of Ife or as Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people and mother of my adorable Prince.”

There is tension in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos as okada riders resist attempts by police officers to enforce the ban on commercial motorcycles in Lagos.

The Lagos State Governor banned commercial motorcycles in some local governments in the state following the lynching and burning of a sound engineer known as David Imoh.

Today, May 19, police officers from Onireke Police Station, Ojo, impounded some commercial motorcycles plying the Mile 2 – Badagry road and the motorcyclists revolted.

They stormed the police station where some of the seized bikes were kept. They tried to overrun the station and free motorcyclists arrested by police.

Gunshots were heard ringing out in the area as police officers tried to keep them away. The motorcyclists retaliated by throwing stones at the officers.

The enraged motorcyclists then started a fire in the middle of the road, causing owners of vehicles to abandon their cars and flee.

The incident has caused heavy traffic in the area.

Court strikes Out FG’s Amended Charge Against Kanu

Published

on

By

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday struck out a six-count amended charge brought against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The judge threw away the fresh charges following its withdrawal by counsel to the Federal Government, Adamu Kaatu.

Citing the need for the government to open the trial of Kanu after years of delay, Kaatu opted to withdraw the new charges when it was discovered the trial cannot be opened when an amended charge is pending.

Apparently desperate that witnesses be called to give evidence against Kanu, the government lawyer hurriedly applied for the withdrawal which was not opposed by Mike Ozekhome (SAN) standing for the defendant.

Justice Nyako, in a brief ruling, struck out the amended charge to pave way for the Federal Government to open its case against Kanu.

JomogNews recalls that the Federal Government had amended charges against Kanu six times since the arraignment in 2015.
