PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

Happy New Year 2015

....................................................................

As we all know, the survival instinct can also lead to a primitive instinct. This attitude may also be responsible for the disinclination of the Ondos to cooperate with one another so as to form a common front. It is everyone for himself and God for all syndrome.

If the Ondos can moderate their cynical attitude in favour of an attitude that encourages the principle of being one another brother's keeper, there is no doubt that the Ondo will fly like eagles and not be weary. All Ondos have a part to play in this great movement for the sensitization of our people and the emancipation of active ideals such that it may be said of us “we did what was within our means to do

It is time to trade respect as a reciprocal irrespective of age, sex, influence or personality within the society in the interest of unity among Ondo Ekimogun Sons and Daughters and establish an achievable vision for Ondo Kingdom.

 

It is time to remove the cloud of negativity among us and think positively together with embracement of the path of honour for the betterment of our Community.

Although the people of Ondo Kingdom belong to the Yoruba race that have their peculiar ways of greetings that distinguish them from other tribes. In the older days male and female children in ONDO Kingdom are taught how to greet people by their parents. For instance in the morning the male usually prostrate full length on the ground to greet their fathers by saying "Ke Bai" why they do same to their mother by saying "Ke Yei". The female on the other hand will greet their fathers and mothers with two knees on the ground by saying "Gbo i ja o bai" or" Gbo ija o Yei". The greetings is not restricted to the parents alone children are also taught how to extend complimentary to elders or seniors which is demonstrated by using the word "Ke egi" or "Gbo ija egi" by males and females respectively

Otunba Damilola Oladimeji (Leyo Royal Ruling House Ondo Kingdom)

The history of Ondo-Ekimogun sprang from the Palace of Alaafin of Oyo in the ancient city of Oyo when the wife of Oba Alaafin Oluaso bore him twins (a male known till today as Orere and a female also known as Olu) which is forbidden in the Palace of every Oba in Yoruba land. The then Alaafin of Oyo love the twin’s mother called Olori Olu so much and on hearing the news of the newly born twins, he lamented that this is a mysterious child "Ese-omo-re" which later transform to Osemawe as Oba's title in Ondo Kingdom.

Ondo Kingdom - Why We Are, Where We Are

Late High Chief Bayo Akinnola (Lisa of Ondo Kingdom)

There are some fundamental things that determine or dictate the way we are and to a great extent, what we do. In simple terms, this situation is believed to be affected by who your parents are, from whom certain attributes are inherited; the environment in which you live in terms of the limitation or opportunities that the physical environment confers and the exposure it allows. Other factors, which are of great relevance in this regard, are the custom and tradition; the norm of the society into which one is born and in which one lives in terms of their intrinsic value systems.

In considering the Ondo situation, it is only natural to evaluate her against the backdrop of these identifiable parameters even though the list cannot be regarded exhaustive.

Crime Of Yesteryears In Ondo (Olorunwa And Allah-dey)

One of the most celebrated trials of murder in Ondo was the one that involved the arraignment and eventual conviction of two friends - Olorunwa and Allah-dey - for the first degree murder of a pregnant Ondo woman, Funmilayo, at a stream near Aogo in the early 60s.

Olorunwa, (real name was Segun Woghiren) was a student at Ansar-Ud-Deen Modern School at Okelisa in 1961 but, later dropped out to found a white garment church of which he was the Pastor. He was a young boy whose hairs later formed dreadlocks, a development which he claimed was a directive from God. He suddenly started getting rich, buying a Morris Minor taxi car while his congregation grew larger and larger, attracting more women than men.


It was at this stage that an apprentice carpenter by the name of Allah-dey (real name was Buraimoh Otokiti) joined Olorunwa in his church supposedly for evangelizing but in reality, for nefarious deeds. The two of them specialized in luring pregnant ladies under the pretext of praying for them for safe deliveries to a stream near the present site of Adeyemi College of Education, where they would later kill and dismember them to force out the foetuses for ritual purposes!
