According to the traditional worshippers, no Yoruba deity is allowed to use human beings or parts for wealth.

The Oyo State chapter of Traditional Religion Worshippers Association disclosed this in a statement released on Tuesday.

The statement which was signed by its Chairman, Adefabi Dasola and Secretary, Fayemi Fakayode, noted that progenitors of Ifa oracle never claimed to have used human parts to seek prosperity.

They stated that traditional worshippers would rather call on ‘Eledumare’ to bless whoever sought wealth through them and whenever appeasements were to be done, simple items like sugarcane, salt, banana among others were used.

The traditional worshippers linked the increase in money rituals to people displaying cash and material things on social media.

They noted that the flaunting of cash entices people to take illegal means to enhance their wealth.
