Ooni of Ife and former Olori, Wuraola have finally settled their scores after the return of Wuraola’s brideprice.

The marriage has finally been annulled as family members of Zainab approached the Ooni to return her brideprice. Oba Adeyeye refused to agree with the arrangement at first but later accepted it after many pleas from elders from both sides.
Both families are reported to be pleased now that the brideprice has been returned and seems to be at peace with each other.
To return a brideprice serves a significant meaning in Yoruba land . It clearly means that both parties: the man and the woman no longer have legal ties whatsoever and are thereby free to remarry. They might remain friends if they so wish.
The Ooni, Oba Adeyeye was reported to have said ” She’s free now, she’s free “.
