An archaic game of beating with long canes was recently played at a remote area in Osun state during which several degrees of injuries were inflicted on the participants who were cheered by supporters.
A flogging competition took place at Ipetu-Ijesha among two notable streets namely; Odoise and Ifofin.
Each street has representatives (competitors), so the representatives came out and started flogging themselves in turns. The more a participant could withstand a particular session, the higher the points earned by such participant.
Whichever street that won will be given a price from the king according to a social media user who attended the event.
