An emissary who would warn them of the phenomena that were coming, in order to be able to be prepared at the precise moment they occurred and thus emerge as unscathed as possible.
Olofin fully agreed with Ika Iroso, showing interest in his proposal, so he inquired as to how he believed the great lookout should be represented.
The Oluo replied that he must be an Osun, so that with his gifts he would be alert to the path of destiny.
The Supreme Orisha nodded and said To Iban Esu, phrase with which he assured the fulfillment of the arrival of Osun.
