Sacred ground

The main square in Iragbiji. The well-shaped space near the middle of the square is a sacred spot. It is believed to be linked to a cave on top of the hill. No one is allowed to go near the cave except the kingmakers of the town on a special day. A few hours later, the square was filled with thousands of people as the Egungun masquerades and the whipping boys arrived.


The Pseudo-Independent 6:40 pm  

Imagine all the money (estimated at over 300billion pounds) that has been stolen from this land

A sacred ground? I think it should be no less in beauty than the likes of the meccas or the vatican cities of this world.


Anyway, I have hope. We are getting there.
