Esu is one of the Orisa in Ifa Religion. The christians and the Muslims are trying to blackmail Esu by equating him with their own Satan, Devil, demon, Lusifer and other evil doers in their religions respectively. Esu is a very good Orisa like others. The devotees of Esu bear names like Esuyemi, Esukayode, Esubunmi, Esukorede, Esuyomi, Esufunmike, Esufunmilade, Esuwemimo, Esutoosin, esutola, Esujide, Esutunde, Esutunmise, Esurinde, Esufunmilayo and so on. Esu festival is celebrated every year.

Esu Esu is eulogized among other praise words as:

Esu laalu
Ogiri oko
Bakere odada
Areyinju legun lo
Ayigbin !
Oba nile Ketu
Egbe leyin elebo
Enini leyin eni-o-koro-Odumare
Esu ma se mi
Ota mi ni ki o se

Esu, the honour of the city
The big and strong stone
Bakere, the instigator
He who possesses eyes that are capable of chasing away bad forces
Ayigbin!
King in the city of Ketu
The support behind those who make sacrifice
The devil behind those who refuses God's message
Esu, please, do not turn against me
It is my enemy you should turn against

The devotees of Esu use the beads which is called Lagidigba. Esu is an indispensable Orisa for everybody. .Esu is a very great Orisa. Orunmila likes him very well. Esu is very faithful to Orunmila.

@Mubaji

Is your translation correct? or is it just a callous inducement of your religious belief.
Do you see anything here that states a blatant lie?

Why can't you hold your own grounds and translate your statements truthfully?

How do you translate the following and say you are a truthful person?

"esu laalu ogiri oko
o Devil, the wicked One
eni ti gbe'nu ibi s'ebi
the one who live and eat from evil deeds....."

Are you Yoruba?, Do you know the Yoruba language? why are you being deceitful?

Do you know who you are?
Are you an Isrealite?
An Arab mohammedan?
A human, origin of Africa, the son of the soil?
Where is your heart?
Can you tell truth from lie?
