The duo tied the knot in a private ceremony in Lagos on Saturday.

Joy is the daughter of Lagos-based architect, Lucky Onojaife, according to her biography shared on the Oodua Facebook page on Sunday.

The former Miss Delta is a graduate of Physiology from the Delta State University.

On October 14, 2017, Adams was declared to be the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland by late Oba Adeyemi III, the Alaafin of Oyo. The chieftaincy title was last held by Chief Moshood Abiola before his death in 1998.

Oodua Peoples Congress was formed in 1994 as a socio-cultural group to promote the Yoruba people and their culture.

Although Gani was not a founding member of OPC, he was appointed the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, then rose to nationwide popularity after Inspector General of Police Musiliu Smith declared him wanted in 2000 with a financial reward of N100,000 for his group’s involvement in violent clashes.

He was ultimately arrested on 22 August 2001, but was later released after being held in prisons in Lagos, Abeokuta and Abuja.
