According to the news source, Awujale who said there is no custom or tradition in Ijebuland that supports such practice, described the actions of such people as abomination. He however, referred to the Osugbos as balifsexplaining that Osugbo is just an association, not a chieftancy title or any cult to fear or revere. Oba Adetona stated this while addressing some Christians and Muslim faithful who converged on his palace to kick start the annual weeklong prayer for him and the Ijebuland.
We also gathered that the paramount had some years ago abolished the practice whereby the demised king were buried by some secret cult members who are often referred to as the Osugbos. It was further gathered that, since the abolishmentfew Obas who joined their ancestors had been buried according to their faiths. However, the monarch while speaking against the backdrop of a recent development which made the Ijebu Traditional Council to renew its earlier stand on the issue disclosed that a man committee would soon be inaugurated from the six local government areas of Ijebuland.
According to him, the move is to ensure that any king that joined his ancestors are given befitting burial according to the faith of such monach he practised while alive. The Monarch said the resolution was made at the meeting held on the 28th of December, to form a committee of four people, two each from the Christian and Islamic religions in the six local government of Ijebuland.
The committee was to meet with the members of Osugbo cult who they alleged were hijacking corpses of demised King, collect and dispossess the family of some possession on the pretence that they want to bury the monach according to what the tradition demands.
Awujale further lamented that the members of osugbos whom he said have constituted themselves to something else nowwere also the executioner who carries out death penalty on any convicted criminals in those days. He advised the people not to run away again but pick up their cane and send them away. Awujale added that henceforth any culture that is not in vogue and not in tandem with the modern day reality would be jettisoned and thrown away. The Ijebu paramount ruler however noted that the way other Yoruba people buried their kings has nothing to do with the Ijebu tradition and this is what the Ijebu Traditional Council has now unanimously agreed upon.
Gbengande of Ososa, Oba Adetoye Alatishe and other members of the Ijebu Traditional Council said they all aligned with the decision of Awujale, describing it as a welcome development. Elegushi plans big for 10th Year anniversary. Boye Oyewumi Invigorate Youths. April 17, Editor TellAfrica 0.

During the Yoruba civil wars of the late 19th century, Ijebu opposed Ibadan and closed the trade routes to the coast. By defeating the awujale at Ijebu-Ode in and thus destroying the Ijebu trade monopoly, the British convinced the rest of Yorubaland to come to terms under their protection.
