Peregrino Brimah: The Aare’s curse- Did late MKO Abiola curse the North?

Aare Ona Kakanfo is a title given to the generalissimo, the war general during the Old Oyo Empire. The defacto Field Marshal who leads battles and conquers enemies. It is no little title.

The Aare (XIII) before MKO Abiola, Ladoke Akintola died fighting, submachine gun in both hands during the Nzeogwu coup. And before Ladoke, the Aare (XII) Latosha of Ibadan committed suicide when he lost a battle.

This is because the Aare tradition it is either victory or suicide. An Eso, of which the Aare Ona Kakanfo is boss, must never be shot in the back –in retreat – his wounds must always be in front. The 6th Aare, Afonja of Ilorin also died fighting.

Evidently, the Aare title is one of the most powerful in the Yoruba kingdom. The power and ritual invocations of the Aare are second only to the Alaafin of Oyo.

You can see that hypocrisy, rather than corruption is the main problem of Nigeria. A nation that sympathizes with a star’s husband for attempted suicide and charges a destitute woman with attempted suicide. No wonder our Presidential Villa had been turned to a retirement home!
