It was the talk of the town about three years ago when mercurial businessman cum politician who owns Ine Oil Limited, Mr. Francis Inegbeniki did the right thing as he walked his lover of several years and mother of his son Helen, down the aisle to seal their love journey at a beautiful well-attended ceremony in Lagos in May 2014. It’s Francis’ second missionary journey into matrimony after the breakdown of his first. So, after the initial anxiety that inhibited him, he finally took the plunge very happily precisely Saturday, May 3, 2014. The venue of the reception was Ruby Gardens along the spanking new Lekki-Epe expressway, just next to the Oando mega filling station. The traditional wedding was at the gorgeous bride’s parents’ home in Ikoyi.
Helen Inegbeniki, nee Omorodion, is one of the daughters of Dr. and Barrister Henry Omorodion, who is the Odunonaba of Benin Kingdom. Helen’s sister is the gorgeous Lisa Omorodion who is gradually establishing herself in a powerful way in Nollywood. Since 2014, Helen has gone into some kind of hibernation and you can hardly see her at any event. Many society buffs have been wondering what could make such a beautiful woman whose societal swag is second to none maintain a low profile, but some insist that it could have been her husband’s wish. We will be on the lookout and inform you whenever we come across her in town.
