This is a distortion of history and you shouldn't be dancing to the tune of such statement not even for the fun of it, because you may enduo passing a wrong message, that would not only distort your history but leads you to endless talks


Benin and ife never had any connections period

it is not history, we all know oduduwa is a fairytale. But since some Yoruba have turned it into propaganda, if some others go against the Ife version of that propaganda, why not ?

It is very clear that the yorubas are fighting a war of information. They are trying to create an alternate history for political reasons.
The Oni of IFA even tried not so long ago to claim the Igbo as being yoruba. The yoruba are fighting with lies and an army of liars. I think most of them know they are telling lies, that is the game plan: conquer through lies.

Ooni(priest) of ifa, turned and metaphorsed to

Ooni( king) of ife (ifa)

The ooni was just a mere priest in a shrine and had no political control over any Yoruba areas before the arrival of the British, but only ife, which formerly called ifa, were the priest ooni resides has been a religious center to the oyos, and various other yorubas, so they regarded ifa(ife) sacred, ifa as at then ife would preach and tell the various yoruba tales how they are the progenitor of the Yoruba people and the entire world at large, the yorubas accepted this as fact due to her religious reverence, ,

The Oni of IFA was the chief priest of oyo Kingdom, he is their version of our priest of Holy Aruosa.

He is a subject of the alafin. The way the yorubas turn history upside down for politics is weird.
