History or Pataki of Irete Suka
The jicotea and the dog lived together and bathed in the river every day. The jicotea confessed to the dog that she took the longest baths.
When the jicotea swam in the river, she returned to the house through a secret cave, ate the food, came back and said to the dog: "Friend, you don't know how to bathe, I do take long baths."
When they arrived at the house, the jicotea claimed that it was a thief who stole the food. The dog, tired of all this, went to see ORUNMILA, who made him Osode, seeing this Ifá and sent him EBO. The dog did the EBO and told him to place the wax doll in the middle of the house and wait.
When the girl came in and saw the doll, she said: -You came to steal and so did I. She gave him the first slap. As her little hand was caught, she told him: -Let me go, you came to steal and so did I. He slapped her the second time and her other hand caught.
Since he couldn't let go, as soon as the dog returned from bathing in the river he discovered that the jicotea was the thief and since then they have lived separately.
