The Curse 

After a while, conflict broke out between Alaafin Aole and Are-Ona Afonja. Alaafin Aole had ordered his army general Afonja to attack some towns but Afonja as usual being so scared refused which led to disagreement between the two.

Your statement here in bold is quite inaccurate and misleading.

The reality, instead, is not that Afonja was a coward who flees war. No! Afonja was a brave lion who agreed to descend on the village.

NB: Contrary to what you wrote, it wasn't towns, but rather just one small defensless village.

He was led into the village by certain platoons of his army who know the terrain, and it wasn't until he had arrived the village that it become clear to him that he was simply being sent on a suicide mission by the Alaafin --- he realized he has been set up by Alaafin Aole.

It was an age-long taboo for any army of the Great Oyo Empire to attack Ìwéré-Ilé --- a small defenseless village.

Any Are who leads such offensive was simply going on a suicide mission because he will not live to tell the story. Death lies in wait for such generalissimo.

Requesting any Are to attack Iwere-Ile (as defenseless and small the village is) is as literal as requesting the Are to commit a suicidal sacrilege.

This is the proper historical context that led to the face-off between the Alaafin and the Are when he found out that the Alaafin had literally requested him to take his own life.

Cheers!

Get your tenses right ('was', not 'is').

And the curse was on the Oyo kingdom, not the Yoruba; but being a demented pig-dog from Biafra I am sure you can hardly be distracted by historical facts.

Quick Facts:
Oyo empire started around 1300 CE and lasted more than 500 years.

Oyo Empire was undefeated unitl its decline.

A minute part of Yoruba...Ibadan defeated the massive population of army of Fulani,Hausa,Gambari etc at Jalumi War.

Ewe in Ghana,The Great Dahomey Kingdom;Republic of Benin,The Fons etc were all vassals of The OYO Empire. and they were all paying tribute to The Oyo Empire.

OSUs were learning how to wear clothes until 1950.

Let me just agree to your lies so that you can be happy. Meanwhile, Emir of Illorin is always there to expose una lies

Read this and be enlightened. Afonja was a commander which was at first in charge of Illorin but later he couped Allafin and went his own separate way. Making him leader of Illorin
