Suyere of the sign Ogbe Oyekun:


Ogbe Yekun's Ebbo:

Works to eliminate taken witchcraft.

To remove witchcraft from the stomach, for 7 days, decoction of parsley root with romerillo flowers and sacu-sacu mixed with raw milk and brandy is taken. If it is difficult to get the parsley root and the sacú-sacu, the leaves are used that are crushed well to extract the juice.

Pataki of the sign Ogbe Yekun:

Ogbe Yeku guessed for Agboya.

Ogbe Oyeku, Baba imolu

ogbo ato baba edon,

Adifa fun Agboya

Epon ko abiru Kilo nigbat wonfi

Iku re of eye kini kin.

It means:

The two soothsayers who guessed for Agboya: the scrub animal with a large bent tail on which the death sentence had been pronounced.

The two soothsayers advised Agboya to make sacrifice with two cow tails (tails) and a father ram. When the hunters were desperately looking for him to kill him, he made the sacrifice.

The next morning, his body was covered in abundant fur. The hairs that covered his body made it impossible for hunters to recognize him in the forest. The hunter organized a hunt, which followed his trail for 7 days. Although they passed near him many times, they could neither see him nor recognize him. So they left him alone.

This is how the saying came about: “AGBOYA ERON, ABIRO KILO”. "The animal that does not die of sudden death."

The Goat, the Lion and the Tiger.

The Goat had a piece of land and made it, and for that place the Lion was the king. All the animals went into the Lion's house, even the Goat himself. One day, the Goat went to claim his position and all the animals turned against him and agreed
kill him in a meeting.

The Goat, when he realized all those enemies, went to Orúnmila's house, who made him Osode seeing him Ogbe Yekun and did the one indicated above. After the ebo was done, Orúnmila told him to go to the meeting that they were going to celebrate with a gourd with guinea meat and food and not to give him anything but the Lion, who was his friend and who was going to defend him.

When the Goat arrived at the meeting, he approached the Lion's side and when he saw the gourd, he asked him what he was eating; the Goat told him what it contained and added; Try if you wish, the Lion tried and asked the Goat if he could cook that meat for him, the Goat said yes, then the Lion said: I will save you.
The Goat that was being checked by the Tiger, went and told the Lion, who very intelligently approached the Tiger, when he saw the action of the Lion, he asked him what was happening and he replied that it was that he did not hear well, but in a carelessness of the Tiger, the Lion threw himself at him and tore him to pieces.

When the other animals saw what the Lion had done to him, they fled from there and the Lion handed the manufacturing papers to the Goat and then demanded that he cook that meat for him, but the Goat also demanded that he tell the other animals that did not bother him more. The Lion made it known to the other animals by telling them: Here I am in charge of disturbing the Goat. All the animals obeyed and withdrew from those places.
