“Killer Herdsmen in Ogun State Will Be Attacked With Charms” – Ifa Priest
Chief Adebola Adetimehin who happen to be an Ifa Priest and also the oluwo Ifa in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State has threatened that the Ijebu would go spiritual to put a stop to herdsmen, bandits and kidnappers creating mayhem in their areas.
According to Daily Post, Adetimehin who is the Oluwo Ifa of Ijebuland said he and other traditionalists in Ijebuland will no longer keep quiet concerning the killings and kidnapping cases in Ijebu axis of Ogun State which have become unbearable.
The Ifa priest called upon all Ijebu indigenes to strengthen and secure themselves with charms to prevent being killed by herdsmen or bandits as it does not negate any religious belief because God is the creator of leaves and other things used in preparing local charms.
When the Oluwo ifa was expressing his sadness over the fact that the entire area had been invaded by “Fulani herdsmen”, he said “We are no more secure in Ijebuland. Fulani herdsmen have invaded our land. There are villages where they have totally taken over. Even on our major roads, they put ‘cattle crossing’ symbols. What an insult!
“Look at the way kidnappers and bandits are operating on our highways too. This is becoming unacceptable. Time has come to make use of what we inherited from our forefathers to combat these killer herdsmen and kidnappers. We will make use of charms, Ijebu metaphysical powers,” he said.
