Ogbe Yekun was a very powerful man, with a strong temper and few words.
He was always well dressed and his face reflected seriousness, which is why he was sometimes feared by his peers who even avoided greeting him for fear of his reaction.
Yoruba history where persuasion is achieved with the Ebbó

So the men and women of the town did not visit it, living an existence full of loneliness and emptiness.
In his domains Ogbe Yekun had multiple tree plantations, some for fruit trees and others for the timber trade.
On these hung the skulls of his enemies and intruders who raided his property.

The Orisha suggested to these that they visit orunmila who through Ifá would advise them what to do.
After the interview with Olofin, the men returned to earth and went to Orula's house, to whom they raised all their doubts.
