The Principle of Give and Take Is What Make the World Peaceful and Habitable

Bu fun mi
Ki n bu fun o
Oun nii mayee gun igegeigege
Dia fun Orunmila
Baba n lo s’otu Ife
Yoo loo ko won ni ise ile
Yoo look o won ni’se oko
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O gb’ebo, o ru’bo

Translation:
The principle of give and take
Is what make the world peaceful and habitable
This was Ifa’s message for Orunmila
When he was going to Ile Ife
To teach people home conduct
And to teach farm and work-place conduct
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied

The big Tete plant in the frontage of the house
Cast IFA for the inhabitants of Odomegbe
Where they woke up and they did not know the rites of their paternal ancestors
They were advised to offer Ebo
They complied
Now we have a father today
Inhabitants of Odomegbe
We have a father today
We have a father
The travelers of Odomegbe
We have a father

Masquerader’s supporters ‘attack’ Ibadan residents
Posted by: Oseheye Okwuofu

Supporters of the popular masquerader in Ibadan, Oyo State, Oloolu, yesterday allegedly attacked residents of Popoyemoja and Bode in Ibadan South West Local Government.
Sixteen vehicles were allegedly damaged in the violence.
Residents were also injured as the hoodlums attacked them with dangerous weapons, such as cutlasses, guns, knives, clubs, sticks and others.
A source said the incident occurred between 4:30pm and 5pm after the masquerader had visited two prominent Ibadan chiefs.
The Nation learnt that the supporters, who wore T-shirts with the inscription, Odun Esan, meaning Year of Revenge, on arriving at the area, attacked the residents with dangerous weapons despite the presence of policemen.
Our source said the residents decried the attack, saying it was carried out as a reprisal following what happened during the festival last year when hoodlums allegedly attacked the masquerader, killing one person and injuring others.
Besides dispossessing the people of their valuables, such as money and mobile phones, the hoodlums allegedly broke into shops and houses, stealing items.
Confirming the incident, police spokesperson Olabisi Ilubanafor said some hoodlums, who were prevented from attacking the masquerade, caused the violence.
She said the hoodlums shot into the air to scare people.
She confirmed that vehicles were vandalised, adding that the owners were yet to be identified as nobody had reported the incident.
The police spokesperson said three people, namely: Ibrahim Isiaka, Yakubu Isiaka and Fatai Bakare, have been arrested and transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID). Some of the vehicles vandalised included a Volkswagen Jetta car with registration number AG 483 SHK, AA 893 SHK, Toyota car with registration number AB 470 AAB (Ogun), MUS 952 BE, Merzedez Benz with registration number EJ 161 ABC (Abuja), Merzedez Benz with registration number MS 194 AAA (Lagos), AA 768 TUN (Ekiti), Ford car with registration number AJ 191 YNF (Oyo) and AA 102 RRU (Edo), Honda car with registration number EPE 452 BH (Lagos), AM 59 KSF (Lagos) and AR 19 NRK (Oyo).
A food-seller, Mrs. Oguntoyinbo Bilikisu, said the hoodlums destroyed her utensils and stole her money.
A 60-year-old man, Godwin Aneke, said he was attacked and his money and mobile phone stolen.
One of the owners of the vandalised vehicles, Mr. Foluso Abiodun, said he was at home when the hoodlums arrived and ordered that he should stop washing his car.
He alleged that in the presence of policemen, the hoodlums vandalised his car and others in the compound.
