There was palpable fear in Akure, the Ondo State capital, at the weekend following the death and burial of the President of the Reformed Ogboni Fraternity (ROF) in Nigeria, Chief Araba Ajemoju.
Ajemoju, who until his deathwas the head of ROF, died on Saturday and was buried according to traditional rites at his home, Araromi Street in Akure,the state capital.

Akure,his home town, was enveloped in fear as rumours prevailed that many people would be killed for rituals for the funeral of the late traditionalist.
Traditionalists from the six states of the Southwest region
converged in Akure for the burial and it was widely speculated that travellers would be used as sacrifice by the spiritualists.
The news, which went viral on the social media, prevented many people from travelling out of Akure.
Many businesses in the town were affected by the development as shops and other commercial places in the town were locked.
Police spokesman Femi Joseph said the culture and tradition of the people should be respected,stressing the need for people to co-operate with the
traditionalists.
He added that the security of the people in Akure would be guaranteed.
