Abuja-based public affairs analyst, Jonathan Onoja Isaac, has reminded men of his community, Otukpa, the headquarters of Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State, of the laid down morals and customs of their land.
Otukpa people are known for their tradition, one of which is the worship of alekwu (god of justice) which means the spirit of the ancestors.
It is said that the alekwu has the power to punish anyone who goes contrary to the customs of the land, including abortion and extra-marital affairs. Men who pay abortion bills are also punished by alekwu.
Taking to his Facebook page on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, Mr. Jonathan revealed that two Otukpa sons have died prematurely while others were brought home for cleansing over the weekend.
He then listed 10 commandments the sons of Otukpa should abide by. Read his post below:
Attention: All Otukpa Sons Across the globe. HOW the mighties are falling….Between Traditions And Civilisations, which is the safest?
It has come to our notice, how some of our great men and youths from the otukpa kingdom are falling prey of the oza room set up by Delilahs in the name of civilization in marriages and friendships.
It’s so touching how these men are dying premature because of an enjoyment that they never lasted for an hour before cuming home in an ambulance. Due to these development, I wish to read out the riot act again to avoid I ”am not awia”
Don’t be deceived, two (2) are already down, and two others were brought home for cleansing over the weekend, but like you know, once a dog has licked an oil from the plate, no matter what you do, he will just be lapping the mouth and wangling the tongue.
Here are the 10 Commandments.
10.Thou shall not bring any foreign deities home, in fact you will not even cross the ikpewu annya with it sef.
Keep these rules and continue to enjoy the fruit of thy labour.We are aware of the fact that some of your wives and assistant wives are since complaining of how boring you are, but you can buy them fish and new clothes instead to keep them happy than giving head. It is better you are boring than to be buried. Thanks.
