Although the Ooni, Oba Adeyeye declared in 2016 when he took Wuraola for a wife that she was the choice of the gods, new findings have revealed this as a lie.
Ooni's first marriage to Adebukola nee Bombata was troubled before he was installed king but they had to patch things up for the coronation.She however lives in London now.
Upon Bombata's exit after coronation, the king reportedly presented three names of his then girlfriends—Adediwura Adeyemi, Sonia Obahon and another lady.
The king was said to have given Sonia the name Wuraola.
“But he (Ooni) was warned by many not to marry Sonia. She was said to have been married to a Lebanese businessman who was resident in Dubai and had kids. He was adamant and must have allegedly bribed his way with some priests to have the name Wuraola chosen. Even if you bribe human beings, can you bribe the gods? It’s a sacrilege for any woman to walk out of the palace. It’s a slap on tradition. A slap on the throne,” said a source close to the palace.So, the oracle chose the name Wuraola and dropped others.
