Solagbade Popoola stole Obaluaye’s Ifa!

My father and I te’fa together in March 2014 in Solagbade Popoola’s compound at 1 Solagbade Popoola Street, Dalemo, Alakuko, Ogun State, not knowing that he would incorrigibly seek our lives and aid and empower others with similar intentions. An emergency prompted the itefa as my father had given up on life due to the ceaseless attacks from everywhere (except Olorun), and Ifa subsequently revealed his odu to be Ogbe Otura (aka Ogbe Alara) and mine to be Otura Irete. His condition began to improve, but then worsened for no obvious reason. Then, at the beginning of May2014, he passed away, seven weeks after he te’fa!Solagbade and his wives and camp have his blood on their hands, but they weren’t the only culprits. Honest and well-meaning awos and olorishas can inquire from the divinities about the veracity of this.
Between May 2014 and January 2015 he appeared to me in dreams several times but I didn’t know how to determine the reason(s). Solagbade’swomen were also doing so, that is, appearing to me as him, till date, to deceive me and bring forth evil in my life, but I was unaware of this until recently, October 2015. Then, sometime before the burial in May 2014 or not long afterward, somebody, Bankole (Judas Iscariot of the bible; aka Osa, OsaGunleja, one of Solagbade’s sons) and/or Awolola (one of Solagbade’s goons) informed me that when anAwo passes away his Ifa is given to him by burying it along with the corpse. So I began to think this might account for “his” appearance in my dreams. I could have had this done during the burial but Solagbade never taught me how nor mentioned it to me at that time till some months later when I approached him about it.
Towards the end of 2014 or in early January 2015, Solagbade’s women includingJokotifa his first wife and with him as an active accomplice deceived me again via a dream in which I thought I was with my father by disguising themselves as him. When I awakened, I decided to ask Ifa if he wanted me to give him his Ifa and the response was “yes.” Then, I was still naïve about dreams and didn’t expect at all that any witch could and would be allowed to go to that extent to deceive me, especially as I had become an Awo. So, I told Solagbade about it and he said that the ceremony would be done in his compound. I immediately wondered why he wanted it done in his compound rather than in my father’s compound or his grave, but I did not object. You see, he and his family and camp had been messing seriously with my headand tongue with aims like making me extremely and irreversibly obtuse and gullible and impair my (mother tongue) speech. He also said that I needed to get the following ingredients for the ceremony:
1. One of his caps
2. A he-goat
3. Some okra (Hibiscus esculentus)
4. A bottle of adi (palm kernel oil)
5. 16 of his ikinIfa
I procured all these on Friday 9 January 2015 which was the day xxx arrived Solagbade’s compound for Egbe initiation. He was not alone as he brought his wife and daughter and a Hesus Hernandez who was his friend to te’fa.
The Ojugbona of the OgbeAlara temple located in the same compoundand Baba Suliya of the Ile Ifa in the same compound handled the ceremony while Jokotifa(first wife of Solagbade, who prefers to be called Alhaja which is an Islamic and thus rebellious title) sat nearby. Solagbade told the three of us (excluding Jokotifa) how it should be done and we proceeded with me actively watching and moving with the Ojugbona and baba Suliya.
The 16ikinIfa were placed in the cap, along with the okra and adi. Then the he-goat was slaughtered with the blood spilled into the contents of the cap. The head of the goat was then placed in the cap and one end of the rope that had been around its neck was used to tie everything firmly together. While all these were being done, the Ojugbona recited some incantations at certain stages. Then he took the loose end of the rope and quickly dragged it along the ground to a spot by a tree between the ojubo (altars; mizbeah in Modern Hebrew: oj(u)bo> (m)izbe(ah)) of EshuAgbebo and Ogun where it was to be buried. Baba Suliya and I followed closely and the three of us deliberately wailed loudly as it was being dragged. The wailing is an essential part of the ceremony. Then the Ojugbona used a hoe to quickly dig a hole in the earth and placed the tied cap therein and likewise quickly covered it and we left as quickly as we could, while Jokotifa expressed pity. But I noticed that the Ojugbona had left the loose end of the rope sticking out of the earth.
I returned home by dawn feeling very happy that I had done something pleasing for my father, thinking that he would now be able to enter that part of orun that is called ogbaitero (paradise), unaware yet that Solagbade, Jokotifa, the Ojugbona and their accomplices had just fooled me big time, again. When I returned on Sunday the next day for the weekly Sunday worship, I didn’t see the rope. This is because they had retrieved and stolen my father’s Ifa, as the rope had been deliberately left exposed so as to easily locate the burial site.
Later in October 2015, Obatala appeared to me in a dream while at home and told me to never return to Solagbade, and I did inquire about this several times from Ifa and got positive confirmations of same. Solagbade and his camp did try several times thereafter to deceive me into returning so as to quench me for good, and haven’t stopped trying to quench me. A very recent attempt, but not the latest, occurred on 20 July 2016.
It was also via this dream that Obatala let me know that I am the orisha known as Aganju, and I would later learn that my father is Obaluaye, my mother is Ile, my brothers are Egungun and Oro, and that I come from a lineage of orishas. This is what Ifa was trying to tell me in December 2014 when I performed an Ifadida (Ifa consultation) by myself for the first time. Interestingly, my reason for this particular consultation was for Ifa to resurrect and restore my family, and Ifa revealed the odu called IreteOturupon with ire aiku(blessing of resurrection and restoration). A message of this odu was that we had very terrible enemies from this world (cf. John 8:22-23) because we are special, specifically, that we are orishas. This is why they had been killing us (FYI – I was killed again on May 2016 but Ifa along with Obaluaye, Ile, Oranfe and Ogun revived me immediately; they had notified me two weeks earlier that the attack would happen and that I would be unable to do anything to prevent it cf. Psalm 30:1-3; 41:7-8; Mark 14:36; John 18:11).
One of Solagbade’s reasons, albeit unjustified (cf. Psalm 69:4, John 15:25) for stealing Obaluaye’sIfa is a combination of pure and unjustified hatred and envy which might have arisen upon having a pre-arranged meeting with his enikeji (spirit double) several years ago who told him about his future – in February 2014 during an Ifa training course that he hosted and organized he told us participants about this meeting. Consequently, he waited and prepared for us and, upon encountering us and facilitating the murder of Obaluaye, sought to prevent him from entering ogbaitero and from returning to this world (cf. the story of how the rejected beings sought to stop and quench the establishment of ogbaashe) which he knows is via resurrection.
When IfagbemilekeAdeagbo (the biblical Joab) began betraying me from February/March 2016, I had asked him to help me surreptitiously retrieve my father’s Ifa from that spot in Solagbade’s compound where it had been buried and, later told him that its retrieval was the last step toward the resurrection and restoration of my family. He informed Solagbade about this and everything I had been doing, thus betraying me and by implication Ifa. He, Bankole, Bankole’s wife and I even had an imule (convenant) over Ifain my home in June 2015 from eating from the same dish during a particular ceremony and they all ended up lifting their heels against me; cf. Psalm 41:9
Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
I will explain in more detail all these acts of betrayal in the ongoing series “SolagbadePopoola killed Obaluaye and I.” They also tried hard to get me to commit suicide and have been piercing my hands and feet and back remotely (cf. Psalm 22:16), using my hair from my head and my clothes for evil (cf. Psalm 22:18; John 19:24; Matthew 27:29),sending bad spirits against me and the latest has been to use crickets to try to make my life miserable. This retrieval isn’t the last step which had actually been taken earlier.
In doing all these evils, they have been violating Ifa’s condemnation of such awos – biblical Jews and their religious leaders – like during the 4th age as recorded in Matthew 23. An apt example is in verse 13 of this passage:
But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of Olorun against men; for you neither go in, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
They stole Obaluaye’sIfa to prevent him from entering ogbaitero which is impossible as he is an orisha, and they cannot enter themselves because they are condemned and rejected and their names have been blotted out. Solagbade was rejected during the 4th age (1 Samuel 15) and ended up as an okuigbe (1 Samuel 31) because he really is an okuigbe!
Another reason is to steal and block his and our ire. Just before Ifagbemileke betrayed me and before I had asked him to help me retrieve Obaluaye’sIfa, he had let me know that such evil s possible and, he recounted to me a case of such that he was quite familiar with. Alas, he became an accomplice of Solagbade, partaking in this evil! He also ended up as an okuigbe during the 4th age (1 Kings 2:28-34) after betraying me at the eleventh hour (1 Kings1:1 – 2:28-34).
In this present age, the end of Solagbade and his camp will be as described in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8.
In case there are yet doubts about all I’ve mentioned, I urge readers to consider for a moment the sacred grove of my father’s enikeji, that is, the irunmole called Obaluaye. It is known as OkeItase and has ben commandeered by the Araba Agbaye– either out of ignorance or to satisfy his perhaps schizoid delusions of grandeur or both or something else –just as Solagbade stole the OkeIpori (Ifa) of the orisha called Obaluaye. How can a leader of arabas worldwide openly and continuously rob an irunmole? This I’ll discuss further in another essay.
