Beware Of Advocates Of Human Sacrifice!
By far the most determined advocate of this head-hunt to secure human heads for royal burials is one Olorogun Shakiru Taiwo whose strident voice at condemning my alerts and belittling this evil is almost deafening! As he hounds my posts, he has even accused me of setting the populace into "needless panic"! As you read his comments, he tries to brainwash you that such thing do not exist....that they are a figment of my imagination. Please, do not listen to him.
The Olorogun title he bears means that as the military head of his enclave, he is a custodian of these archaic practices. So, at best, he can only pretend to embrace reforms.
I should publish the full text of his comments as time goes by. The following is one of my responses to his relentless rants:
"For Shakiru Taiwo to sweep my motive for sending out this alert under the canopy of panic is sardonic! For I have simply asked our people to be careful! What would he have me do? Join the fray like him to perpetuate this evil?
I am relieved that he obliquely acquiesces to reforms as he flippantly admits that human sacrifice still occurs in Yorubaland...but justifies its existence! So, he wants people to let down their guards so that the head-hunters can have an easy catch!
Like Nelson Ekoh pointed out, the most painful regret of the Ile-Ife custodians must be that this king died abroad...so news of his death is already in the public domain!
Otherwise, they would suspend the publication of his death until the human heads are complete! Yet, they still deny his death as they smuggle his body home from abroad!
These savages would go to any length to severe your head from your neck! So, you must go all length to save your head!
If we all decide to arm ourselves...even with guns, there is really nothing this irresponsible government can do!
The problem is: if some do and some don't! A government that is so busy stealing our resources to bother about providing us security cannot ask us not to protect ourselves!
And we all must continue to share all the 3 parts of this Oro Series until it goes viral...as we also use other means like calls, text messages and words of mouth to alert our associates and family!"
