Eleggua Tell Truth Always
Oggun made Prince Eleggua’s life impossible, he would bribe him and promise anything to him in order to coerce him into silence , and he received a resounding answer of “No” every time. Oggun became inpatient and began rationing Elegguas food in hopes of blackmailing Eleggua into his schemes and silencing his voice. Still this was of no use to Oggun Oggun at still further retaliation throws Prince Eleggua out of the home and into the streets. when Oddua returns to the home he finds his youngest son is missing and asks everyone where is the young Prince? Oggun lies to his father and says that Eleggua had gone into the forest to visit his brother Ozain. The young Prince Eleggua enraged by his older brother was beside himself and hungry but feared telling his father Oddua the reasons why Oggun threw him out . He waits three days and ponders the thought to tell his father what was transpiring in his absence. This when Eleggua sits and waits at the four corners of the street ( the crossroads) waiting patiently for his father on his way home to tell him the truth and the reason why he had been missing for three days . ** It is at this time that Eleggua transforms into Eleggua “Laroye” and where in the future he becomes the Ruler of all paths on earth and life. Laroye waiting for his father to pass knew the only way to confront all this was to do what he did best and that was to tell the truth to his father of how Oggun was abusing his wife and his mother. As Oddua passed the crossroads there he came upon and surprised to see his son Eleggua who he had not seen in three days . “Omo mi , you must indeed be missing me these three days that you have come to meet me at the crossroads of home. Laroye raised his eyes to meet his fathers and replied , “Baba mi the reason I have not been at home for three nights is that Ogguns lies and he has cast me out of your home. Oddua gazed upon his son with doubt and continued ” Why would your brother cast you out of the home that is not his? Speak to me clearly and tell me everything that has happened”. Laroye now sees the opportunity to tell his father everything begins , “Oggun threw me out of your home and has not feed me in some time for when you leave the Home . He has coerced Ossosi and Ozun so they wont tell you what happens in your absence from the home of what he does to my mother, every time you leave in the morning he begins rape her and abuses the other siblings and uses our food as blackmail . ” Oddua is left in shock , and he becomes weak and a sensation arises within himself and Laroye sees the doubt once again coming to his fathers face and he says unto him ” Baba mi, I have never lied to you nor to anyone of the kingdom . I know it is hard to believe but if you think I am lying then come home early tomorrow and you shall see with your own eyes .” Now the feeling Oddua had inside spread throughout his body. It was the sensation of fury , The attack of fury was so great that something came out of his body and shot up into the sky. What was left in his body was nothing but a shell of what he was and had been.
