The palace of the Ooni of Ife has reacted to two fake photos claiming to be those of the newborn prince welcomed by Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II.

The Director of Media and Public Affairs to the palace, Moses Olafare, said that the photos circulating in public are fake.

According to him, the necessary rites which will be done before the face of the baby is made public have not been done.

He explained that “Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, who has the sole right to make the face of the baby public, is yet to do so, as essential traditional rites to formally welcome the Prince in accordance to our culture and traditions are still ongoing.

“The Arole Oduduwa wishes to unequivocally and emphatically state that the pictures are not that of his son, he wants the public to ignore the social media circulation of the pictures capable of threatening the privacy of the babies in those pictures and their parents.

“We urge Journalists and bloggers to always verify sources of news materials and pictures before publishing or posting to avoid ‘Invasion of Privacy’ which is an actionable offence punishable by law.

“The child and mother doing perfectly well as the palace remains agog with daily jubilations and congratulatory visits,” he added.
