Ogboni

The Ogboni is a fraternity indigenous to Nigeria, Benin and Togo. To be a member, one must be a part of Yoruba nobility. Allegedly, the group has a strong influence over the high courts when it comes to capital offenses. Recently a member who left the group spilled details about Ogboni, saying they promise to make members rich but never do.
