Aunty Bella: Mr. Blood Oath



Aunty Bella is our agony aunt column on BellaNaija. We launched this column in the early days of BN and periodically feature issues sent in by BN readers.

BN reader, Onome* sent us a very short but strong email. We hope you can provide some insight and help; especially as we know that a lot of young and middle aged couples are going through this situation at the moment. We hope that you can provide some constructive and logical advice. Thank you very much.


Hello. Please I need help for a friend of mine. His girlfriend is asking him to take a blood oath with her, and he is really confused and wants to know if he should go ahead. I need suggestions.

* Not real name.

    Blood oath ke? TELL HIM NOT TO DO IT!!! In fact he should
    take off his shoes and pick race…blood oath 4 what…. it’s not
    necessary dear. No need for it 2 prove one’s love. I’m speaking
    from a female point of view. Tell your friend not to do it, no
    matter what pressure he might be under.

    He should not. Blood oaths are dangerous and very spiritual and demonic. We might not believe this things but they exist.he dosent need to be in a blood oath or covenant to prove his love. I would also suggest that he if he dosent he should get to know Jesus christ am nt talking church am talking about a real relationship. Because am sorry to say this but a person asking for a blood oath is not just normal there are underlinning things.

    If the girlfriend has trust issues and she is ready to resort to fetish means at this stage in their relationship , what will happen if and when they get married ?! I don’t know if they are Christians but the boyfriend should not be coerced into anything occultic because a blood oath is not of God. Infact, this might actually be God’s way of telling him that this relationship is not right for him and he should quit while he’s still ahead.

    Pls share your endometriosis stories @ Let’s beat endo together!

      Don’t mind him, instead of him to ‘pick race’ from an obviously fetish girlfriend, he is asking whether he should do blood oath. Small time now, you will see them at MFM to cast and bind. In fact, go to the famed Okija shrine for the oath , biko. hian

    blood oath ? what sort of thing is that ? is she a traditional worshipper ? so mixing blood assures her that they will go all the way ?? please your friend has to dump her and move on!! ok he takes the “blood oath” and they get married, imagine what she will ask for this time. “honey, I want you to eat my pubic hair to prove you love me” (pardon my gross example lol). Tell your friend that he should not agree to such barbaric act and leave her alone!

    please do not take the Blood oat. I was once dating someone many years ago at the university and he asked me to take blood oat with him am glad I never did cause I would have been a miserable woman married to him. it a life of bondage. there is a lot spiritually connected with blood covenant.

      Hello, sad to read what happened to your uncle. inasmuch as he did such in the past and broke it off and it seems like the devil is on rampage in his life it is all deception to make him believe that the devil is overly powerful. for a fact satan is extremely wicked but he is not as powerful as people make him to be. he is even over-hyped.
      what I suggest you uncle to do is to get to study about Jesus Christ. I didn’t say he should read about Jesus but get to study and know the lord Jesus Christ and all what he has already done concerning such extreme cases in the word of God. he should also give his life to Christ. and he will be free from this bondage. the word of God is quick, powerful, alive and sharper than the sharpest swords. to believe and know how to apply the word would instantly destroy all these years of bondage. it broke mine and today am free and happy. what the person needs is to seek God with all of their heart and if they truly seek him with all their heart he will be found.

    If that blood oath is not between you and your maker, then you have no business taking one. As it is that is not a requirement for any religious faith so your answer to the oath request should be a firm and resounding NO, after which you pack your baggage and RUN. Religion aside, lets apply common sense now. why would anyone in this day and age ask you to take a oath? a blood oath for that matter? do you know the consequences of that? have you not seen enough nollywood movies to know this doesn’t end well? why your friend is even considering this I will never know. did his mother take a blood oath with his father? is that the norm in his life? if so then I can understand the confusion.. if not, does he not see it for the abnormality that it is? you need to bitch slap your friend (several times) and breathe sense into him (tough love style) blood oath, BLOOD. ahh olorun gba mi o.. this I must have a man issue is becoming something else.

    Please dear Onome…even if you dont watch Nollywood movies or Yoruba movies. I want to assume that you have been living in this day and age and you’vr heard stories at least….I beg of you, NO BLOOD OATH please. If she needs your blood to be certain of your intentions for her, then that is not the kind of person you want to be TIED to (notice my use of the word TIED) the very notion itself shows doses of insecurity, complex, low self esteem, possessiveness, clingyness and all the variations of its type…Do not mess up your PHYSICAL & SPIRITUAL LIFE…Whats yours is yours., if it isnt yours, no blood oath will guarantee anything….In the words of an anonymous wise woman, Even if the bird flies, if its really yours it will come back to you…Take care please

    Ehn Ehn…..Now you see, the drama that ensues from that will be something not just BN worthy but we can make a Yoruba movie from it sef…not all this kain incomplete “can I put my hand inside fire story”….yeye people…lol.
