My Church Is Aware I’m Member Of Ogboni Confraternity —ogunfuwa, Remo Chief. by PhockPhockMan: 5:40pm On Oct 11, 2015
By Lekan Bilesanmi


Otunba Joseph Adedayo Ogunfuwa, the Babalaje of Remoland, celebrated his 75th birthday, penultimate Saturday. In an interview, shortly after the birthday lecture, Ogunfuwa said he is a devoted Christian, a member of the Anglican Communion and a strong member of the Reformed Ogboni Fraternity. This, he claimed, his church is aware.

What inspired your celebrating your birthday with a lecture?

I conceived the idea of a birthday lecture 15 years ago when I clocked 60 years because I thought I would die before 60. My late father died at 62 and, to me, when you clock 60 and die, it is not a premature death. Initially, the birthday lecture was restricted to my immediate family and close friends. But when I clocked 65, people, mostly friends, advised me to extend the invitation beyond my immediate family so that it could be a legacy that will not only benefit my immediate family but should be passed on to generations because of my experiences on knotty issues like world peace, religion as well as other issues that will always give people food for thought.
I also want to say that none of the fraternities that I belong to is against any religion or government. They all affirm the supremacy of God and oppose discrimination of any kind. The world needs peace and not insurgency and the battle for God among different religions must stop if the world must know peace.
So, this year, I changed the pattern of the lecture. I saw the need to invite knowledgeable persons to deliver it. Professor Dayo Adekole talked about religion and fraternities and explored the notion of a conflict. Professor Rom Kalilu talked about religious intolerance –The Muslim point of view. I spoke on religion intolerance =The Christian view point and religion and world peace. The whole essence of this was to see how we can all bring about world peace. Without peace, nothing meaningful can be done, either as an individual or as a nation.

What exactly is your philosophy of life?

Do my best in all circumstances for everybody and without doing wrong to anybody.

Your dad died at 62. Did you envisage you will live this long?


Nobody knows how long he or she will live. People die through many causes. You cannot predict also what manner of death you will have. One can have the best of health and still die young. When you live and abstain from what is not necessary, you can live long. For instance, I gave up smoking over 30 years ago, and I was a bad drinker. My elder sister kept warning me and weeping because of these habits because of the fear that I might die young. But, today, she is alive and I am also alive. I had to stop smoking because I had medical challenge. As a child, I was always ill. My mother died of asthma at 32. The doctor advised me to stop smoking, but I didn’t stop immediately. I, however, gave up the habit when I realised that I was pushing myself to the grave. One does not need much education to know that smoking is dangerous to health. And it is not right, but it took me long time to be convinced that I needed to stop the habit.

At 75, would you say you are fulfilled?

I have been a fulfilled man as far back as when I clocked 60. Death did not matter to me after that. People tend to associate fulfillment with wealth or monetary worth. It is whatever you set out to achieve in life that makes you fulfilled. I set out to be what I am, to be kind to people, to be generous to live according to my conscience. I listen to advice but I don’t take every piece of advice. I am not rich and I don’t have to be rich to be a fulfilled man. I have 14 children and 23 grandchildren. I have always told my children, ‘what I have done for you, go and improve on it yourselves’.

Being the Babalaje of Remoland, what are the factors that shaped you to make you who you are today?

I don’t know why they conferred the title of Babalaje on me because I told them I didn’t want it. Babalaje is given to people who are rich. I am not.

What is that thing that your parents inculcated in you while growing up that you have also passed to your children?

That is a secret. When my father was about to die, he compelled me to love all my siblings because he was a polygamist. Today, I am successful and my siblings are also successful and my children too.

So when you die, how do you want to be buried?

I have given my children instructions on what to do when I die. Not only that, I have consistently openly said it. Nobody should say after my death that I renounced any of the fraternities I belong to. I am a Christian of Anglican Communion; when I die, my fraternities’ members should come in their full regalia and, if the church will not permit that, let the fraternities bury me.

His middle name is "Adediji", and not "Adedayo". Contrary to what he said to the reporter, he's in fact a rich Ijebu man. Based on my research, he's a chartered accountant and the chairman of one of the few vastly successful investment companies in Nigeria.

He's also a member of the Freemason fraternity and he's the current number one (the head) of the scottish affiliate in Nigeria.

Oh you mean your association, because No Church will be comfortable with that . Any faithful and committed Christian will not identify the church with that. My opinion though.

You're a hopeless fool.
If you were minding your damn business as you falsely opined, you wouldn't have bothered quoting me in the first place, son. . . Am I stunned by your exhibition of acute _stupidity? Of course not. Wasn't anticipating anything less from a degenerate _moronic _idiot with the IQ of a small stone. Go get some sleep boy, its obvious your excreta filled brain is rusty and exhausted.

[size=14pt]Dear Otunba Joseph Adedayo Ogunfuwa

I hope you read this.

You cannot be a Freemason/Ogboni member and think you are a christian.

You cannot serve two masters, either Jesus or the devil.

Matthew 6:24 [Full Chapter]
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon(god of Ogboni and freemasonry which is satan)


Please don't fool yourself and say that Reformed Ogbon is Different from the Normal Ogboni.
It's like saying that you are into Reformed Satan worship


Choose whom you will serve today, Jesus OR the god of Ogboni

Joshua 24:15
choose you this day whom ye will serve
