History lessons should be made compulsory in our high schools. Too many ignorant people with smart phones typing rubbish about a culture they have no idea of. Seems everything is done for the sake of TRENDING on social media.

So the Yorubas were so barbaric right from the 17th century. No wonder they love palm oil and opening their mouths when they talk. They should kindly abolish this nonsense. It is too shameful.

What took lalasticalala , Seun and ishlove so long to make this post to the Front page is a story for another day, rather they take joy in sending mockery post from joke section to make people laugh... Nairaland is a platform where most people rely so much for information and any wrong insinuations could be costly... We should always make findings about issues before using vuvuzela to blow it out. Yoruba's are not wicked as we are suddenly portray them to be.

Thanks OP's for the very inciteful and informative post, it comes in handy and more timely...
God bless Nairaland.

The first post claimed obabaku is not practiced in Ife.
But the 2nd post says in Ife, Saarun performs the same function.
The first post gave an in depth analysis of when obabaku stopped in old Oyo empire, can Ife historians educate on us when the practice of Saarun being buried alive with the Oba stopped.

I saw this on Grandson Soyemi's fb wall and decided to share.


Let me set the record straight...in this age of information, ignorance is a choice.

I have watched the show of vacuity as it is been displayed by some of the online gurus (mediocre) in the recent time about the Abobaku saga. It is ignoramus to jump into the pool you have not delved before. Let me set the record straight...

Abobaku is a traditional practice in the ancient Yoruba Empire. Abobaku system is peculiar to the Ancient Oyo-Yoruba Empire. It is not heinous as some people take it to be, rather it is a matter of choice, people compete to occupy the position of Abobaku just as other positions because while the king is alive, the Abobaku enjoys de facto power and he shares in the glory of His Royal Highness.

In the Ancient Oyo-Yoruba Empire, it was constitutional for Aremo to be Abobaku, he is to be buried with his father. After the Owu War in 1827, there came the creation of Ibadan and Ijaye in 1829 and 1830 respectively.

Ogunmola headed Ibadan as Kurunmi who later became Are Ona Kakanfo became the leader of Ijaye. Alaafin Atiba succeeded Alaafin Oluewu in 1837, but at the demise of Alaafin Atiba in 1859, Adelu who was Aremo and supposed to be Abobaku (someone that dies with king) refused to die with the king and wanted to succeed his father. And because of the benefits Ibadan enjoyed under Alaafin Atiba, they wanted continuity by supporting Aremo Adelu to become Alaafin against the tradition.

On the contrary, Ijaye did not want the continuity and wanted to protect the culture of the kingship, there started a war of superiority between Ibadan's combatants and Ijaye's warriors in which Ibadan came out victorious and Aremo Adelu became Alaafin Adelu in 1859. This was how the doctrine of Abobaku ended in Oyo-Yoruba Empire.

Ife has never practiced the tradition of Abobaku before and no one can point to anywhere in Yorubaland today where the tradition is under vogue.

Abobaku is a system in the past and it has gone with the past. It is vicious and malicious to peddle what you know nothing about to score a mere rhetoric point. We are proud of our ancestral past!

Eledumare bless Oduduwa Republic.

“There is no truth about Abobaku eloping over late Oni’s Death”- Hon Rotimi Makinde

Quite a number of no-truths and distortion has been written regarding the eloping of an entity called ‘Abobaku’. In Ile-Ife, the person so referred to is called ‘Saarun’, head of the ‘Emeses’ who are stewards to a reigning Ooni.

The Saarun is the head and closest aid who must go everywhere the Ooni goes. It follows in the days of hold that upon the demise of an Ooni, his most trusted aid and steward will be interred with him to continue his life of service to his master and as well show his loyalty.

I personally know the Saarun that served late Oba Adesoji Aderemi (late Yaya Arasanmi) While Oba Aderemi passed away in 1980, his late Saarun passed on in 1987, 7 clear years afterwards. The current Saarun will not be buried with late Oba Sijuade as the practice has since been stopped in Ile-Ife. I am a proud son of Ile-Ife and I am well grounded in the traditions and cultures of my people. It will not happen.

This laughable attempt at saving face is not going to work... How about fibbing this rubbish to the loved ones of those whose lives have been ritually cut off as part of the burial rites of the late Ooni? May Be they would prefer your head in Ooni's tomb instead of this cover up.

Hmmm

Too late at face saving crap. We non yorubas don't even know what abobaku means, it is yoloba word and d meaning says it all.

What is d curfew for n why is the burial enshrewed in such secrecy that only few fellow ogboni chiefs witness it? What are they hiding?
