A Nigerian Ifa adherent, Oluwo Jogbo Orunmila, a 30-year-old man, has spoken about his religion and what it covers.
In an interview with Legit TV, the man said that out of curiosity, he has been to churches to know the bible, revealing he understands everything in the holy book.
The man said Ifa practice is a lifelong thing, noting that a module of it could have up to 16,000 verses.

Oluwo Jogbodo added that he took several lessons on Quran. When asked how true it is that people’s fortunes change when they bathe with a ‘spiritual soap’, the man answered in the affirmative.
He stated that what the soap does is to make the person’s spirit in tune with the universe such that they are positioned at places to meet people that would bring opportunities to them. He, however, argued that the person must have a business or something doing for it to work.
When asked about money ritual where people go diabolical to become rich, the man said there is no proof that such a thing works, asking Legit.ng correspondent, Abisola Alawode, if he had seen one. He blamed such belief on Nollywood.
Jogbodo also said there is nothing called witches, disclosing that the Yoruba word “Aje” which people loosely translate as “witches” is wrong. He called the Aje feminists, saying they are in charge of women's affairs.
He added that the Aje (iyami) are people who are concerned about the wellbeing of children.
