Elders of Benin Kingdom returns bride price to Ooni of Ife.
After the crash of her marriage to Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adedeye Ogunwusi, the coast has now been made clear for Queen Ze3ynab Otiti to marry again.
According to an exclusive report by Kemiashefonlovehaven, the Oba has released the his ex wife to marry again if she wishes after he accepted the bride price that was paid on her as a customary right when he got married to her on the 12th of March last year.
The Oba was quoted to have exclaimed ”She’s free now” after he received the bride price he paid from her when he wedded her from the elders of the Benin Kingdom.
According to a source in Benin, the Ooni was initially reluctant to collect the bride price, but was persuaded by the Elders as a way of closing the controversial marriage and separation.
We would recall the the Ooni had earlier announced the implications of any affair or marriage by his ex wife after they had separated. Any attempt at marriage by the queen mat lead to the death of her partner he announced.
The marriage which was contracted in March 2016 in elaborate ceremonies held in Benin and Ife hit the rocks over alleged infidelity.
