Patakie of the sign Ogbe Ate:

How he healed the deity of prosperity Ola Aje.

OGBE ATE was a famous Awó in Heaven where he was called Abaketekete. The most important work he did was to heal the deity of prosperity (Ola Aje in Yoruba or Uwa in Beni). Ola Aje had many enemies that transformed into mice at night to bite him while he slept. All the Awos in Heaven were well informed and had tried to cure him but could not, the more they tried to cure him, the sicker he got. He had three rooms whose doors were locked.

The first of them enclosed the messenger of Death, who had a truncheon in his hand to beat until killing anyone who dared to enter it. The second door contained Ogogohiahia, an agent of the divinity of sorcery who was capable of swallowing anyone who dared enter the room. The third room contained all the gifts of prosperity capable of enriching everyone who could enter it.

All the Awos who tried to heal Ola Aje were told to knock on the door of any of the three rooms for compensation. Almost evenly, all the Awos knocked on the wrong doors never to leave after entering. When there were no more Awos left, it was Abaketekete oruko Ogbe Ate's turn. Ola Aje sent messages to inform him that the deity of prosperity was seriously ill and that he needed him to come to heal him. As soon as he got the message, he invited his two favorite substitutes; Uroke Mi Lawo Ligorin and Uroke Mi Lawo Leturuye to guess for him.

They sounded like Ifá and Ogbe Ate appeared. They advised him to sacrifice to Eshu with a goat and to look for a dove, rat, cat's head fish and 50k in cost of soap, to make a special preparation for the trip. The sacrifice was made and the appropriate leaves were found to prepare a special bath soap.

They told their boss that what bothered Ola Aje was present in him, in his house, and that if he bathed with the special soap, he could see the identity of the criminals in his dream. Armed with the special soap, Abaketekete set off to respond to Ola Aje's invitation. When he arrived, he saw that he was really sick, used the soap on him and then gave him a special white cloth to cover himself when he fell asleep.

Ola Aje had a dream that night, in which he saw one of his wives who was transfigured into a mouse and entered his room. Instantly, a cat would come out of the soap dish prepared by Abaketekete, chase the mouse and kill it. At the time his favorite servant was transformed into another giant rat and entered the room, the cat stood and captured him. One after another the six members of the house were transfigured into rats to go after him and bite him, but they were eliminated by the cat.

Ola Aje slept peacefully the rest of the night. The next morning, he thanked the Awó for helping him in curing his illness. They were glad of the situation. Cries were heard coming in the direction of his aren, because five of his wives and his favorite servant were not waking up. Ola Aje and el Awó were the only two people who knew what had been the cause that led to the mysterious death of the conspirators while they slept. Their corpses were thrown away and later buried. After 7 days, Ola Aje was totally well and the Awó was still with him.

On the seventh day, the Awó asked permission to return home. To express his appreciation, his guest told him to open one of the three doors to his treasury and take whatever he saw. When he was about to open one of the doors, Eshu was transfigured into a young man and brought him water for him to drink. The boy warned him not to go into the first two rooms. He advised him to knock on doors and after hearing the sound of three gongs, greet their occupants, saying that he was passing through. The boy told him that the good things were in the third room. After the warning, he left. Abaketekete acted in the manner indicated by the young man. When he reached the third door, Abaketekete was confused with outrage at Ola Aje's apparent ingratitude. He thought that if Eshu hadn't warned him, he would probably be dead. Instead of opening the door, he decided to wreak havoc in Heaven, thus giving GOD the possibility to intervene and determine the good or bad faith of Ola Aje. He began to sing a song that said:

«You are from saka
lu bi olisaka
You're fo bojo
Erate kporokporo. »

While singing, a boy who had been waiting to live through Abaketekete spoke from inside the third room, omiala kpeji. The Awó called Alakpejio and the boy replied, omi ro ni o. Abaketekete changed the melodic tone of his song and spoke to the boy in this way:

«Maafoooko du kpa asan lo rini
maafo obo gi do ri yon
maafo ni yan digi
owo lonje loni. "

After this, he knocked on the third door and a voice asked him to open it. When he opened the door, a boy ran to him to hug him, carrying a crown in his hand. He gave it to her and told him to put it on.

When Ola Aje saw the course of events, he recognized Abaketekete's feat in opening the right door. However, as soon as Abaketekete was inside the room, Ola Aje conjured and the door slammed shut, imprisoning him inside the room. After spending three days in the room, his guardian angel spoke to him and told him to persevere, that perseverance begets prosperity.

His host decided to give him the final test. He told Abaketekete that he would let him return with all the wealth in the room if he could produce and display a father ram, a duck and a pigeon. Instantly, Elegua tied the bones of a father ram, a duck and a dove to a rope and blew it against the wall and it was opened for the rope to pass through. As soon as the bones entered the room, they became alive. After that miracle, Abaketekete told Ola Aje that if he opened the door he would see the animals. Ola Aje opened the door and took the rope to get the animals out. Then he released Abaketekete to leave with all the riches in the room.

The boy said he would join him as soon as he got home.

He came home amid great joy. His wife became pregnant the following month and gave birth to a boy, who was named Alakpejiy Adeyemí.

When this Odu Ogbe Ate manifests itself in Igbodun, the person is told to serve the new Ifá with a father ram, a duck and a dove and Eshu with a goat. You must warn him that shortly after preparing the Ifá, an event could develop that would lead to his arrest. However, it will be released if the sacrifices are made in advance and the incident will usher in prosperity. She will have a son after the completion of the Ifá ceremony, who will be called Adeyemí or Alakpeji. In divination the person should be told to be careful in extending his goodness to people so that he can avoid the risk of losing his life through the ingratitude of his beneficiaries.

Then Eshu slandered Ogbe Ate by telling the people that Ogbe Ate had thrown something into the river to poison it, this reached the ears of the soldiers who communicated it to the King, who ordered to arrest Ogbe Ate. While in prison, he reconsidered and filled with 16 stones that he found asking Orúnmila for forgiveness, the guards told the King that Ogbe Ate was a fortune-teller, the King sent him to look for her and he made her bear and this Ifa came out, where he told him that The King jumped on the bed and that he had a Broody hen and what he had to do with it ebo, and in this way Ogbe Ate obtained his freedom.

The king later asked him why they had imprisoned him and he said that they had raised a false testimony, since the women were washing in the river and Babaluaye was washing their sores in it, when he left the prison he was he learned that Babaluaye had died of old age and not of witchcraft.
