Multi-billionaire businessman, lawyer and philanthropist, Dr John Olatunde Ayeni, has refuted rumours of an affair with Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi’s wife, Olori Wuraola
The former Chairman of Skye Bank has threatened that if mischief makers do not stop linking him with the Olori, his actions might not be too pleasant for his detractors.
According to the businessman, who has admitted to being rattled by the unfounded claims, there is no iota of truth in the reports linking him with a relationship with the king’s wife. He was introduced to the Olori by the Ooni himself, he insisted, adding that that they had indeed met twice but not alone.
“We met twice and the Ooni was there on both occasions. Once at his home where all his family members were present, and the other time at his office,” he said.
Ayeni disclosed that he is too busy and morally upright to be involved in such trysts and has actually spoken to the monarch to clear the air on the lingering issues. He further blamed his detractors who are responsible for defaming his personality ever since he emerged as the winner of the bid to buy and revive the defunct NITEL.
The infamous estrangement of Ooni of Ife and his wife, Olori Wuraola, has continued to generate controversies, denials and rebuttals, especially from the billionaire who is just facing his business after he bounced back after several years of recoiling into his shell. Ayeni was evicted as Chairman of Skyebank based on allegations of syphoning funds and misuse of office.
