It is definitely not the best of times for the family of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, who is reported to be shopping for a new wife after his marriage packed up some months ago.
It was gathered that the marriage of one of the sisters of the respected monarch in Yoruba land, Princess Peju, is crumbling before her eyes.
Aproko247 can inform you for free that Princess Peju and her husband, Dr Oladipupo Hammed, are in court fighting hard to take possession of the two children produced from the union.
In the suit with number 7CL/13/18, the husband is the plaintiff, while the wife is the defendant.
Information squealed to us revealed that while the woman wants to keep the children, the man is bent on having full access to them.
However, to settle the matter for them, the duo have involved the court and as you read this piece, a court in Lagos is mediating.
It was learned that Princess Peju and Dr Hammed fell apart as a result of irreconcilable differences and they both felt it was no longer possible for them to live together under one roof anymore as husband and wife.
We heard both parties are no longer interested in the marriage and as soon as custody of the children is sorted by the court, a divorce would almost immediately follow.
At the moment, both parties have engaged the services of lawyers to make the process seamless, but we can tell you for free that their matter in court is not an open affair at all because they do not want the press to feast on their troubles.
However, Aproko247, which got wind of the court matter, visited one of the sittings at the Tinubu Magistrate Court 1 recently and both parties were reluctant to speak on the issue just as their lawyers also supported their decisions not to speak to the press on the matter.
But we gathered that for now, Princess Peju has left her matrimonial home and is now living with her two kids, a boy and a girl, at an estate in highbrow Lekki, Lagos.
