Abobaku Escapes

There are claims the Abobaku (one that is buried with the king) has escaped. He is supposed to be buried with the late Ooni of Ife, Alayeluwa Oba Okunade Sijuade.

Are these claims a roust to quell the flames that might erupt from social media? After all this is a tradition that goes back 5000 years to the burial tradition of the pharaohs.

Some find it hard to believe that a tradition of Abobaku families (family lines raised to be buried alive with kings) remains in 2015. Then again hundredss of terrorists blow themselves up around the world everyday after maybe a few months of orientation. – @OgbeniAyotunde
