BEWARE THE IDES OF JUNE, KAKANFO ABIOLA, AND YORUBA LIBERATION
Unlike the simple way we number our calendar daily, the Romans numbered theirs in groups or blocks of days that are a little more complicated for our simple modern system.
There are three blocks of days in the month in the Roman calendar.
The second block is the Ides, which ends on the 22nd day of most months.
The third block is the Kalends, which ends on the Ist day of most months.
It is a complex system in which they counted days backwards and forwards, the way Yoruba people count numbers after 10, as 10+1, 10+2, 10+3, 10+4, 20-5, 20-4, 20-3, 20-2, 20-1, 20.
When Julius Caesar was warned by the soothsayer, therefore, to beware of the Ides of March, his warning covered the entire second block of the Roman calendar.
Caesar did not know the exact date of his doom.
The Are Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Oloye M.K.O. Abiola, was assassinated in the second block of days of the month of June. Using the Roman calendar, he was assassinated on the Ides of June, which is the 12th day, using our modern calendar.
The Are Ona Kakanfo is the Field Marshall of the Yoruba military.
The Are Ona Kakanfo does not die. They only transition to another level, where they are even more powerful and formidable than when they are here in material and physical form.
If you slaughter them, you only make matters worse, because the circumstances following the slaughtering will be much worse than if you had left them undisturbed on earth.
This is why a Yoruba proverb says, “Òkú ajá jẹ̀kọ jààyè: the slaughtered dog is more ravenous than the one not slaughtered.
Look at history: the slaughtering of Are Ona Kakanfo Afonja at Ilorin led to the entire disruption of the map of the southern part of West African, before the colonial era.
The slaughtering of Are Ona Kakanfo Abiola created a chaotic situation throughout Africa, from which Nigeria has yet to recover.
The Are Ona Kakanfo Abiola did not die. He simply went to Ọ̀run (The Source), to arm himself with spiritual powers that he now uses to defend the Yoruba people.
The Ides of June is the block of fifteen days before and after June 12, when The Are Ona Kakanfo Abiola returns to continue his fight for the liberation of the Yoruba people.
Nigeria must beware the Ides of June.
That is when Are Abiola rises up and takes on the mantle of war to fight for the Yoruba people.
Tread carefully during the Ides of June.
If you have spiritually washed your eyes (tí o bá wẹjú), you will see him on the face of the moon during the Ides of June.
He is not smiling. He is looking for those Fulani herdsmen who slaughter his people.
It would be better for any of them to not have been born than to cross his path during the Ides of June.
