Read the last encounter of Late Bojesomo Of Ori Oke Agbara Erinmo and Elerinmo of Erinmo-Ijesa

The death has been announced of Baba Aladura Joseph Adeyemi Bojesomo, the Spiritual Head of Ori-Oke Agbara Mountain in Erinmo-Ijesa in Oriade Local Government Area of Osun state.

According to a press statement issued and made available by the Public Affairs and Media Department of the Elerinmo in Council, Baba Bojesomo died around the early hours of Tuesday 20th June, 2023, having spent over one hundred (100) years on earth.

While speaking on the death of Baba Aladura, Prophet Joseph Bojesomo, the Elerinmo of Erinmo-Ijesa, Special Apostle Oba (Dr) Michael Odunayo Ajayi JP, Arowotawaya II, described the death of the Spiritual Head of Ori-Oke Erinmo as a colossal loss to humanity. He extolled the spiritual and sterling leadership qualities of the late Great Prophet, describing him as a dogged, committed, pious, amiable, and patriotic leader.

Oba Arowotawaya revealed that Baba Bojesomo confided in him about his imminent death a few months ago, sometimes in 2022. 

” I was on a visit outside the country when I got his message which said I needed to come and see him physically as soon as possible because lle ti nto lo (meaning it is about to go home) and that God has a message for me from him ahead of his departure”.

When I returned to Nigeria, I went to see him immediately, and he repeated the message that his time was up and that God asked him to pray for me and hand me a special gift. The late Prophet then went inside his room and brought out a new white Yoruba Bible which he asked us to hold together and with which he prayed for me and later handed it to me as a gift to keep close to my person even after his departure with specific instructions on the usage. The incidence was recorded on video for posterity. Glory be to God.

Even though Baba hails from Efon-Alaye town in Ekiti State, which shares boundaries and ancestry with Erinmo town, he was the spiritual head and Baba Aladura of Ori-Oke Agbara in Erinmo.

The Monarch said, “we should not mourn but celebrate him as someone who had turned my domain, Erinmo town and the entire nation around for Christ.”

The traditional ruler noted in the statement that the late spiritual legend will always be remembered for his wise counsels, commitments and sacrifices to the propagation of Christianity and for putting Erinmo on the worldwide Christian map as the Jerusalem of Nigeria.

In his words, ” Baba’s death is a great loss not only to Erinmo, but to all and sundry as people from far and near always come to him seeking for spiritual help and solution to one problem or the other as he was powerful spiritually and God used him greatly for the people”.

The Elerinmo averred that the demise of the renowned spiritual father has created a wide vacuum in the Christain community, which will be difficult to fill.

Oba Arowotawaya also eulogized the deceased’s unbroken and invaluable contributions to the peace and progress of his domain, adding that he would be greatly missed.

Ori-Oke Agbara is one of the several spiritually potent mountains domiciled in the ancient town of Erinmo. There are several world-acclaimed spiritually potent mountains in Erinmo town to which ardent worshippers from all over the world troop for spiritual help, these spiritual mountains include, Ori-Oke Otito, Ori-Oke Agbara, Ori-Oke Koseunti, Ori-Oke Maberu etc

Mountains in Erinmo have been a spiritual tourism hub and have played host to the top echelon of highly placed powerful Nigerians in different spheres of life. Those well-known and well to do people from the cream of society always throng there for prayers and their spiritual needs, albeit discreetly at times.

The Elerinmo prayed that God would give the entire family of Baba the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. He urged the biological children of Baba Bojesomo to adhere to the good virtues of Baba.

Oba Arowotawaya, also invited all and sundry to plan a trip to the ancient town of Erinmo, which enjoys friendly weather, chilly harmattan season between November and May each year, serene atmosphere, safe, good motorable roads, arable farmland for fresh food with warm accommodating people who are investors friendly.

A trip to Erinmo will also allow you a direct one on one meeting to see some of the oldest women in Nigeria one of which is an Erinmo woman who is now one hundred and eighteen years (118) and many others blessed with enviable longevity, still agile, hale, hearty and moving around without aid(s)
