3 Ifa priests from Oyo town were on Friday arraigned before a Magistrate’s Court sitting in Iyaganku, Ibadan, for impersonating the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, and for illegally conferring chieftaincy titles on some Americans.

The defendants, Ikusanu Faleye, Fasola Olaniyan and Olaniyan Awoyemi, were arraigned on four counts of conspiracy to commit felony, impersonation, forgery and conduct likely to cause breach of public peace.

The defendants were accused of giving chieftaincy title of ‘Oba Ifa Adimula of South America’ to some foreign nationals.

They were also accused of forging chieftaincy title certificates and presenting same to Franciva Leoa Nobres, whom they christened ‘Ifatowo Adebayo;’ Dasiel Guerra, christened as ‘Awotunde Ajisola;’ and Jose Lara, christened with the name ‘Ifakayode Falade’ without the consent of the monarch.

The offences were punishable under sections 517, 484, 467 and 249 (d) criminal code Cap 38, Vol II laws of Oyo State of Nigeria, 2000.

When presented before Magistrate A.A. Adebisi, the accused persons said they were not guilty of the offences.

A palace source told our correspondent that the accused persons belonged to Ijo Ifa Adimula Temple, Bara, Oyo.

He said, “They attracted their victims through the Internet and collected unspecified amount of money in foreign currency with the promise that the Alaafin would confer chieftaincy titles on them. Their (accused) luck ran out after some of the victims posted the pictures of the coronation online, thinking they had obtained authentic titles from the Alaafin.”

The magistrate granted bail to the accused persons in sum of N100,000 with surety and proof of employment.

  1. Hummm FUNNY. Fruadsters are denting the good image of this country ever more including using what some set of people hold so dear and sacred like traditional titles?

    But come o… What would an American do with a Nigerian traditional titles?

    I take a stroll…

    • You people fail to realize that what you have been throwing away for years blacks in the diaspora have started embracing. Nigerians are not just duping white people, but their own black people who wants to embrace their lost culture and traditions. I say shame on you.

  2. The only crime i see here is impersonation. Those Americans got some questions to answer about their interest on those titles.

  3. AH AH AH AH YAHOOFRAUDSTERS SUPERDUPER DUPED MR 149, IT MEAN THEY HAVE BOTH SCORE 010,

    WE SHOULD ALL KNOW THAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN DUPED TOO BECAUSE THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO SAY WE SHOULD BELIEVE IN JESUS .

    WHEN YOU GO TO THEIR COUNTRIES, THEY TURNED OUT TO BE THE MOST IDOL WORSHIPERS.
    THEY ARE ALL CONNIVING LITTLE SHIT PAGANISM FRAUDSTER YAHOO RITUALIST.

    THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE JESUS
    THEY ARE HEARTLESS RITUALIST AND IDOL WORSHIPERS

  4. If those Americans are gullible and desperate enough (which I term as “gullidep”) to want to buy chieftaincy titles on the internet, what is wrong with selling it to them? I honestly believe that the monarch is upset that some smart persons beat them to it. After all, Obas give out chieftaincy titles in return for money. In Nigeria, anything goes. What the hell concerns oyinbo man with African chieftaincy? Is it their father’s culture? Remember the same oyinbo that brought the Bible and Christianity to us also brought guns and bombs for us to destroy ourselves. I beg, leave those yahoo boys alone o’jare. They took their one chance. Long live Nigeria.

    • All of your statement ase…. Interesting that a lot of people from Africa refuse to remember that the white intruder brought destruction to Africa

    • Who is buying title on the internet, the man is being duped right in front of his face. If Africa is the cradle of civilization then maybe it is their father’s culture, they all just don’t know it.

  5. They sell titles and initiations in Nigeria just like they sold their brothers and sisters into slavery to the Arabs and Europeans. Nothing is sacred in ********, home of scams.

    • You hit the nail right on the head, Nigerians don’t care about their own people, you really think they care about us in the west. They always trying to make money off of us.

  6. So now that yahoo-yahoo scams isn’t working again, these yahoo boys have come up with a different money making strategy? Now they’re selling their birth right to Americans? OMA GA OH!
