In Nigeria, there is only one body vested with the duty and power to approve associations, societies
or businesses. This body is called Corporate Affairs Commission [CAC]. This body is a Federal
Government owned commission and whoever has their Certificate of Incorporation with a unique
registration certificate number, is considered legal and authentic to practice its association, society
or business under such regulated environment.
With Freedom of Association entrenched in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
whosoever desires have the right to form or join any society, association or business, provided it is
legal and approved by this commission. For such society, association or business to be approved, it must have its guiding and stipulated rules and regulations called CONSTITUTION. This constitution is submitted to the commission [CAC] for revision before it can be approved.
This commission [CAC] has also published and announced countless times, warning the public that a lot of unrecognised and unregistered fraternities are deceiving people; especially in the Diaspora. Telling different lies and putting on fake regalia and illegal crowns, capping people and giving them fake titles all over the world. This exploitative act is being termed a crime as it is illegal by the Federal Government of Nigeria. This makes such perpetrators criminals.
I would have mentioned some groups here but legal reasons and my being a law abiding citizen.
However, in the interest of the Ogboni Fraternity in general, there is need to expose all these evil
doers to protect the image of Ogboni Society in general. I am therefore appealing to all the fake
Ogboni groups to desist and totally stop their deceitful acts. Else be ready to face the wrath of the
law of the land. This is in the name of peace and posterity.
I can say emphatically here that we have many arms or factions of Ogboni Fraternities in Nigeria as
against just one; as proclaimed by some thieves who count all other Ogboni Factions to be their
followers and never tell the world their position. Rather, they claim they are AGBAIYE (world). The
questions are who appointed you to represent them? Have you controlled the society you claimed
to be leading before naming yourself world leaders in Ogboni? These are facts a lot of people don’t
know in the Diaspora. It’s not their fault because they have been indoctrinated without proper
orientation nor and allowed to ask questions. I will mention few here. However, being the first Ogboni to emerge does not mean they are the best or heads of other Ogbonis. Bearing in mind there is Freedom of Association. Any Ogboni Fraternity Association that does not follow the rules and regulation (ASSOCIATION CONSTITUTION) of their Association as presented to the C A C while registering their Association in Nigeria can be nullifies. This is unknown to so many of their falsely initiated members. Instead of asking for their registration certificate you followed their regalia and fake crowns and unto deceive you, they give you fake titles and crowns. The original of which shall be given to you by another Fraternal Association recognized, accepted and approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria when the time comes and the fake removed. It is high time for you to start your enquiry into who and who are real, do you remember what happened to a BABALAWO who collected money and capped one white man as ARABA IFA AGBAIYE or so and said he does with the permission of his highness KAABIYESI ALAYELUWA ALAAFIN OF OYO but was later prosecuted and was rescued by AGBA AWO that prevented him from going to jail. OGBONI is also set to do same for
