Orunmila warned that:
It would be necessary to create on the ram's skin an insignia representing Olofin so that in this way everyone would know the power of the creator above all things.
Ogbe Otura was the one appointed by Olofin to come down to earth, to whom he entrusted the great purpose of establishing peace between day and night and finding a middle ground that would benefit man and nature alike.
In this way, Ogbe Otura left for his destination carrying the ebbó and the banner that marked the presence of Olofin in his hands.
Peace came with Ogbe Otura and Olofi's blessings
When the subject of the creator arrived in the town, the people received him with despair because they believed that night and death were more powerful than Olofin, due to the many tragedies that they had suffered as a result of their whims.
