The odu Ifa casted for today’s Itadogun Ose Ifa is OTURA GASA with blessing of wealth, ifa ask us to make sacrifice so that the evil plan of our enemy will turn to be blessing for us. Ifa ask us to appease Obatala.
Ifa said and I quote:
Awo Ojugbe difa fun ojugbe
Nijo to n lo re da oko eba ona
won ni o kara nle ebo ni kose
adifa fun alabarun ajapa nijo to n lo re pa abuke osin,
Nje mo pa abuke osin mo fi rera,
emi pa abuke osin, orisa jinmi,
mo pa abuke osin mo fi rera
The Priest of Ojugbe cast divination for Ojugbe
When he was going to do farming on roadside,
He was ask to make sacrifice,
As well as the tortoise that was going to kill the hunchback man, the servant ofobatala,
Thus, I kill the hunchback man (Orisa Slave),
Obatala bless me
Ojugbe is a roadside farmer that love to send gifts to Obatala through the his slav e, “the man with hunchback“, so obatala got carried away one day and decide to bless this generous man called Ojugbe that have been sending him gift for long. He therefore insert blessings at the hunch of his slave and ask his slave to take it to Ojugbe, On this occasion Ojugbe become rich and wealthy and tortoise that happen to be neighbour to Ojugbe knew how ojugbe became rich when he scratch the hunchback of obatala slave, tortoise also trace obatala slave one day and tied him up and took his hoes and cutlass to open the hunchback eventually when he was doing this, the slave died, tortoise now decided to implicate his friend/neighbour Ojugbe by going to call him to come with his gun to the farm, that there is antelope eating his crop, not knowing that it was Obatala slave that tortoise has killed that is been covered with skin of antelope, Ojugbe eventually shot the Object and tortoise raised alarm that Ojugbe has killed the hunchback slave of obatala, this became a court case, but obatala knew it was a setup because he knew how much Ojugbe live him and trusted him that he can’t do such, obatala decide to put up an examination, he turned Ojugbe to a King, and put him on horse and make him more richer, the ovation was loud as people were singing and praising Ojugbe with the song that says “I killed orisa slave, I become dignity, after killing orisa slave, Orisa blessed me, I killed Orisa slave and became famous”.
This song shocked tortoise and he started wondering that Ojugbe was been blessed from the offence he never committed and he therefore decided to speak the truth and eventually the tortoise was arrested and paid for his evil act.
May ifa olodumare escape us all from evil deed. (Ase)
