The Apena of Lagos, Chief Isiaka Ogundare, has said that whatever gains money ritual fetch cannot last more than seven years.

According to him, the person who went into it will then begin to face the repercussion.

Ogundare thus advised Nigerian youths to shun money rituals and embrace hardwork and creativity.

He gave the advice while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos On Friday.

The traditionalist said that the youth should not allow anyone to lure them into money ritual.

According to him, money got from rituals does not last long and will have repercussions.


He said that the youth should rather channel  their energy toward meaningful ventures.

“I call on  youths to desist from perceiving money rituals as an option to enrich themselves.

“The effect of money ritual cannot go beyond seven years. The person will begin to face serious repercussions afterwards.

“It is better to be hardworking and think of ways to be creative to make wealth.

”I call money ritual a cursed adventure,” he said.

Ogundare urged parents to properly guide their wards.

He also called for co-parenting.

He said it was disheartening that some parents watched others others’ children misbehave without correcting them.

“I will say parents are responsible for the gradual erosion of our cultural values because parents no longer teach  children our values.

“It is the children we train that pray for us later in life.

“Parents must cultivate that habit of training, counselling and guiding  children in the proper way and teach them our cultural values,” he said.
