Oloori Sekinat Aramide is not dead
This followed the announcement made by a certain blogger in London. The blogger, Abike jagaban, had a show on facebook and reported that Queen Sekinat was dead. Abike even corroborated her claim with a narrative that the queen’s aunt announced the ‘death’ to her amidst tears!
Abike had the ‘show’ just a few days after social media went agog with the news of the mother of three falling into a coma in Istanbul, Turkey after undergoing a butt enlargement surgery.
Queen Sekinat never had a surgery in Turkey.
When Kemi Ashefon contacted the queen on Thursday night, she was hale and hearty.
“I am alive and not dead! Abike should tell the world again which queen is dead,Nothing is wrong with me,” Oloori Sekinat said
However, in a statement released on Monday, spokesman of palace, Temitope Oyefeso, reiterated that the rumour was born from the “wicked imaginations of the authors.”
The palace insisted that the senior wife of the king is hale and hearty and going about her responsibilities in the palace.
It also threatened to take legal action against false news peddlers.
“The attention of the media office of HRM Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi has been drawn to the false news circulating about Olori Sekinat Aramide Elegushi, senior wife of his royal majesty,” said the statement.
“Contrary to these reports, which only exist in the wicked imagination of the authors, Olori Sekinat Elegushi is hale and hearty; she is currently at the palace, discharging her royal responsibilities.
“The palace takes serious exception to any unfounded and malicious news regarding the royal family and will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law on anyone found culpable.”
The palace also thanked concerned friends and family members who reached out for clarification on the rumour.
Oba Elegushi married Sekinat in 2003 and the union has produced three daughters.
