Ilogbo Ekiti: a neglected home of Princes and Princesses

 

Sometimes we wonder the reason most people forget their ancient towns and take refuge in a place of sojourn. Some towns and villages are still suffering from their archaic and obsolete way of doing things traditionally.

Ilogbo from all available information is a victim of such orientation. Many wonders why it has suffered set back despite having all children in high places and going by an article that was written by Maxwell Adeyemi Adeyeye, the town called Ilogbo Ekiti is far from 21st century development.

Ilogbo Ekiti is located in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti-State in the Southwestern region of Nigeria. The town is suffering from bad road, lack of potable water, even WAEC has abandoned the town secondary school which left bo option but for the children of secondary school age to seek succor in a neighboring town. Imagine such a high level of suffering. It I well noted in the Maxwell write up that since 1999, democracy seems to be a curse on the town and the people of Ilogbo Ekiti as no government in and out remembers the place after election despite all their effort during all election to make sure the leadership is on their side which had always being.

A Prince of Ilogbo Ekiti, who would have also been of assistance has ran out of the country as a result of the barbaric traditional rites which was supposed to have gone with history.

In this present age, a tradition will still allow for killing, despite the all the claims of Christianity and Islamic religion which everyone claims without second thought.

The case is a young Prince of the Elegosi family of Ilogbo Ekiti Prince Adebayo Dave Gbadebo a native of Ilogbo Ekiti. He’s the first grand male child in the lineage of late (Elegosi) The High Chief Adebayo Sunday Awelewa. And according to the traditional rites, it is a conditio-sin -qua-none, it is the first grand make child that must succeed every late (Elegosi) and as a matter of fact he’s the present grand male child of the lineage of Elegosi.

And by tradition they have being doing everything humanly possible to force the young man into becoming the next (Elegosi) which by his religious understanding he couldn’t base on the conditions attached to the position which is loss of his loved and passionate wife, which will obviously become a sacrificial lamb, also the next Elegosi when performing the ritual of the enthronement he has to eat human part as well as have all his daughter circumcised despite the medical implications and campaign against female circumcision. All these are unacceptable in today’s society, if the title must remain can they talk to their deities to change its taste and eat better things than human flesh and circumcision blood.

I want to belief the major setback the town witnesses is as a result of this barbaric things, I guest the gods are angry with the people for not changing their meals as other gods in other places are eating friend rice, chicken, plantain, pounded yam and ice cream.

I guess the Oba, Oba Edward Oluleka Ajayi who is a doctorate degree (PhD) holder from the University of North London, United Kingdom, should investigate into this family because the youngman we are talking about has left Nigeria for south Africa, when he was discovered and he felt unsafe, he recently moved his family to United States despite managing a lucrative business in Nigeria.

Imagine a town with the caliber of people such as Dr. Omojola Awosusi (Ph.D.); Prof. ‘Tola Olutoye, a former Provost, College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti; Dr. ‘Deji Fasuyi (PhD), an ICT expert and Senior Lecturer in EKSU; late Obagbade Bamisaye, a former Comptroller General, Nigerian Custom Service; Olufemi Aina, a top official of the Nigerian Custom Service; Justice Adesodun of the Ekiti-State High Court; Barrister ‘Tunji Orisalade, a Lawyer and former Deputy Speaker of Ekiti-State House of Assembly; Prince kayode Jegede, Special Adviser to Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti-State on Infrastructures Development and Public Utilities during his tenure in office amongst many others. Is suffering from this setback, how will such a structure grows the future leaders who will save it from the backward situation.

“The gods of the land are angry “
