August 14, 2015 – Pictures: Ooni Of Ife, Sijuwade’s Burial Delayed As Abobaku Disappears, Man To Be Buried Alive With King Still Missing

The man who promised to die alongside Oba Okunade Sijuwade has disappeared into thin air.

In Ile Ife, an Abobaku is a person selected by the palace chiefs to die with the king. Such person is treated with dignity and showered with care in his lifetime but he must be buried alongside the king.

Pictured above is the 75-year-old Abobaku who was supposed to be buried alongside Oba Sijuwade today but since he learnt of the death of the Royal Father, he has disappeared into thin air.

He even refused to wait for the official confirmation before he took to his heels.

It is still unclear if the burial will hold today without the Abobaku.

Meanwhile Twitter users have nominated the following Abobakus for the traditional chiefs now that the official Abobaku has picked race..LOL

abobaku ile ife

Hehehehe nobodi wan die…. aboba what???? #pick race

  1. when will ***** free from this bondage? in this modern day people are still use to bury kings, that king no get pikin? **************

  2. Who do u expect to wait, if hapun to be you,would you stay? Buries alive keh…………………….I advise him to run even more than thin air if possible

  3. The king is already in hell. Cus his hands are soak with people blood. He die alone let him face God alone

  4. One of the ooni’s children should be used as alternative or the head of the chiefs should donate one of his children abi? dem forbid to die with king abi dem get 2heads? Abobaku on your marks, go very far

  5. The devil has a system of agents(demons) and followers amongst men and they perpetrate this evil and ignorance to collect souls for the hell fire. This same madness called culture is practised by zulus, aztecs etc but they have all moved on. It’s high time we enact laws that guide how traditional bodies operate. The king is facing his own reckoning already while these blind people are determined to follow. A cultural revolution like the one China used to overturn a culture of 2000 years is what we need in this country.

  6. they should look for him, catch him, put him in the grave with the oba and try to cover him with sand and release him. he has enjoyed all the privilages associated with the tittle and now he wants to run? anyway I know that his people are cowards and will never acceopt this kind of offer.

    • I strongly and totally agree with Obi. The man is a greedy man. He should go and fact the west of the apt he took. He has enjoyed all royal benefits of a royal family. This is one the of the biggest problem with Nigerians. Greed.

  7. Hello Guys, i appreciate you guys for condemning this evil practice by idol worshippers in the name of culture, if the youths in this areas can come together there will be a change, can a blind man lead a blind man? can evil fight evil? @sanmi, thank you very much for your comment. LET US ALL SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND NOT THE KINGDOM OF SATAN (Matthew 6:33).

  8. GOD PUNISH ****** PEOPLE WITH THEIR STUPID TRADITION. THEY HONORED HIM AS A KING STILL YET THEY WANT TO BURY ALIVE HUMAN WITH HIM. WHERE IS HE GOING TOO? HEAVEN OR HELL. MUMU PEOPLE THOSE WHO SELECTED HIM TO BE BURIED ALONGSIDE THE OBA SHOULD SELECT THEMSELVES AND DIE ALONGSIDE WITH HIM NAH. IDIOTS. MAKE THEM NO BURY AM NAH RETURN HIM TO MORTUARY OR BURY HIM WITH HIS SONS. EVIL PEOPLE.

    • Why the verbal attack on Yoruba people,all sorts of savage traditional practices are general to most tribes in Nigeria, this one just made news so if this is about a Yoruba ex, guess that’s a personal issue, dont curse us out.

  9. I cant belive this tradition atall,King die ,another human being,will die with him,God have mercy,2015 not 2000ys ago.

  10. hahhahhahjahhhahhhahhahahh I can’t stop laughing. Abobaku ya gudu. Anyway i knw wat these yoruba traditional worshippers are capable of doing if dey wnt him to cum back today dey wil do it bt i pray dey wil nt succeed sha .May Allah help him.

  11. They were in it together, why is he running? We have to be realistic here, do you know how many lives would have been taken for him to become and remain an Abobaku? If you know the depth of this their culture, you will be surprised.He could have rejected the ordeal then but he took it. When he was enjoying the position, we did not hear anything. Now it`s time to die for his cause, he is running, to where now?.

  12. @ Uchenna, u r very correct, I noticed from one of the Ooni’s interviews, that he said he had given his life to Christ, so why bury someone with him.

  13. HAH AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AABOBAKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU WHERE ARE YOU , OKETE BAYI NI IWA E , OKETE O O BAYI NI IWAEEEEEEE,

    OO BA IFA MULE , O TI DAA IFAAA , OKETE , ABOBAKU ,PLEASE COME OUT NOW , YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR PROMISE TO OONI. WE KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE

    SO IF WE DO NOT SEE YOU IN 48HOURS WE SHALL GET HOLD OF YER WIFE AND CHILDREN, THEY WILL GO DOWN WITH OUR KING

    THE KING NEED A MESSENGER IN PARADISE , AND HE NEED A LOT OF HOUSEMAID AND WIVES. HE MUST NOT TRAVEL ALONE.

    WHY DID ABOBAKU RUN AWAY AH AH AHA HHA HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH,

    I THINK THEY SHOULD TAKE ONE OF HIS CHILDREN AND THE OOLORI AGBA OR OOLORI KEKERE, THERE ARE A LOT OF BELEJAYAN , THEY SHOULD COME OUT OF HIDING, OOOOOOOOOOO ABOBAKU COME OUT OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    THIS TYPE OF SACRIFICE IS NOT ONLY IN NIGERIA, IT IS A WORLDWIDE THING ,

    EVEN IN EUROPE AND EVERY OTHER PART OF THE WORLD ARE DOING IT IN SECRECY,
    BUT THEY ARE PRETENDER, THE PINKY AND THE ABINOS ARE ALWAYS PRETEND AS IF THEY DO NOT DO SUCH THINGS, BUT THEY DO.

    EVEN THE BIBLE SUPPORT THIS KIND OF SACRIFICE FOR THOSE WHO ARE RICH.
    THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN BY THIRTY THREE AUTHOR .

    EVERYONE OF THEM SAY DIFFERENT THINGS, EVEN THE AAJE AND OLOSHO SAY SOMETHING.
    IF YOU READ , ISAIAH 43 VS 4 ,,

    IT WAS WRITTEN , NIWON BI IWO TI SE IYEBIYE TO LOJU MI , TI IWO SE OLOLA, EEMI SI TI FE O. NITORINA EEMI O FI ENIA ROPO RE, ATI ENIA DIPO EMI RE.

    SINCE YOU WERE PRECIOUS IN MY SIGHT, YOU HAVE BEEN HONORABLE,AND I HAVE LOVED YOU
    THEREFORE I WILL GIVE YOU MEN , AND PEOPLE FOR YOUR LIFE., AND IF YOU READ DEUTERONOMY THERE ARE A LOT OF SACRIFICE.

    AFRICAN ARE NOT THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT WAS DOING ALL THESE THINGS.
    ALL THE RELIGION SUPPORT THIS KIND OF SACRIFICE.

    BUT WHEN THEY CAME OUT TO THE OPEN , THEY WANT TO BEHAVE LIKE A SAINT . BUT BEHIND THE CLOSED DOOR , THEY GO BACK TO THIS SAME TRADITION.

    THIS SACRIFICE HAS NO COLOR EITHER YOU ARE ABINO OR BROWN MONKEY. THEY ARE ALL DOING IT.

    PLEASE CHIEF ABOBAKU , BOODE OOOOOOO, COME OUT , WE GIVE YOU TWENTY SECOND . DO NOT THINK YOU ARE SAVE WHERE YOU ARE ,

    WE CAN HYNOTISE YOU TO SLEEP AND NEVER WAKE UP , AS FAR AS YOU ARE NOT ON THIS EARTH. AABOBAKU COME OUT NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW THE KING MUST TRAVEL TODAY.

  14. We are here,trying to solve the problem of this country,Nigeria,and u guys are adding to the problem by your so called culture.Culture that will not take us to anywhere.

  15. in this modern time pple still do this u think some one is foolish to be bury along with a king u must be mad idiot why dont you one of the kins men use ur self or use one of the kings son so we know u guys are serious since he ran aways pls eat the dead king ok idiot foolish pple GOD PUNISH U ALL WHO ARE SUPPORTING THIS , LOOKING FOR THE RUN AWAY MAN U SAID HE WAS TREATED WITH DIGNITY MY QUESTION IS THE KINGS SONS WERE THEY NOT TREATED WITH DIGNITY WHY DONT U USE ONE OF THEM OR U THE KINS MEN SO WE KNOW U RESPECT TRADITION FOOLISH IDIOT TUNDER KILL U ALL

  16. Human sacrifice in this modern age! This is one of the reason the western world still believe that africans lives in cave and on trees. If this is ur culture then ur people are not even different frm the ISIS or Boko Haram group. ABOBAKU, please don’t ever think of coming out frm ur hiding! U just made a wise decision by running for ur dear life. Please look for a good bible believing church, confess ur sin and ask for God’s mercy. They should choose one from the Kings sons whether home or abroad for the sacrifice.

  17. If what is used for sacrifice is not available,other thing should be careful.These evil people can use any careless person.

  18. Is this shitty culture still in practice? WTF!!! Y’all should perish in hell. How are they different from the Boko Haram after all they both engage in slaying innocent people for religious purposes. If the king needs company, then his immediate family should be the best choice after all they’re related by blood why should it be someone else. Abobaku or Aboki whatever you call it. #Rubbish

    • THE ABOBAKU MUST GO WITH HIM, THERE IS NO WHERE YOU ARE RUNING TO, WE WOULD CATCH HIM .

      BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY SIGN THE OATH , FROM THE DAY OONI BECOME KING OF IFE, ABOBAKU SIGN HIS LIFE AWAY AND TOOK MONEY.

      HE RECEIVE A LOT OF TOKEN. SO HE CAN NEVER ESCAPE THE DUNGEON OF THE LION. IT IS OUR TRADITION .

      EVEN IN EUROPE AND ALL OTHER PART OF THE WORLD ARE DOING IT IN SECRET.

      IT IS ONLY THAT THE OYINBO USE RACIST TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT , THE AFRICAN ARE THE ONLY ONE DOING ABOBAKUN . NOOO WE ARE NOT THE ONLY NATION THAT WAS DOING IT .

      NOOOO IT WAS WEONG FOR YOU PEOPLE TO THINK WE ARE THE ONLY ONE , EVEN THE CHINESE ARE DOING IT , AND OTHER NATIONS .

      EVERYWHERE ,WHERE THERE ARE KINGS AND THE QUEEN. THEY DO ABOBAKU. THE FREEMASON AND OTHER SOCIETY USED TO PERFORM ALL SORT OF THINGS TOO.

      WE CAN NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN HIGH POSITION , EVERY NATION ARE DOING ABOBAKU.

      WHAT THESE PEOPLE HIGH POSITION ARE DOING BEHIND THE CLOSE DOOR ARE SO TERRIBLE. THEY ARE ALL DEMON.

      VAMPIRE WHO DRANK EVERY MORNING.

  19. Vry gud of u Mrs Eranko, since he has signed d agreemet den he mst stay & die wit Oba, U r d only pers detects d truth.

  20. Foolish and barbaric tradition. Osun is my state but they are still living in the past all in the name of tradition.Rest in hell mr king.whoever brings abobaku backs from hiding will die untimely. nonsense.

  21. This is insane and I call it out of God fear, I belief that this Barbaric tradition of using human being for a sacrifice is an heartless, and foolish culture practised in Osun , it is high time we rise up against this useless and stupid tradition. Out of ignorance of this chiefs about where d king is even going may b is even heading to hell they dnt knw . It Is act of foolishness saying dt d King should nt travel alone and needs to provide a messenger. I pray that may the Lord help us and we should not allow the wrath of God to come over us. Amen
