August 21, 2015 – Ooni Of Ife, Oba Sijuwade’s 5 Wives Forbidden From Remarrying “It’s A Taboo” – Palace Chief

The five wives of late Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Ooni Of Ife can’t remarry after the death of their husband.

According to a palace chief who requested anonymity, the order was prescribed by Ife tradition since the Ooni is not considered dead but to have transited to a higher realm.

Hear what the traditional chief said:

“The rules is general and applies to all Ooni that has passed on and not peculiar to the wives of Oba Sijuwade, the immediate past Ooni. There may not be a clearly defined repercussion against the tradition but it is advisable that the order is obeyed at all times and for all generations. The best that can happen to the oloris left behind by any late Ooni is for them to remain single or be inherited by the reigning Ooni.”

The king is survived by his 4 wives Morisola, Adedolapo,Odunayo and Ladun and a and a concubine, Linda.

  3. The Bible clearly states, you are to remain married, until death do you part. In the eyes of god, all five wives are free from the law.
