  1. Baba (Apostle Joseph, as he was fondly called) was said to have established that prayer mountain as a place where God answers prayer based on spiritual directives and evidence that produces a bountiful harvest.
  2. The establishment of Ori Oke Aanu made the people of the community renounce their deity (Olodeode) and follow Christ.
  3. Another side attraction to the venue is a section where an altar of prayer with bells was raised (Babalola’s prayer house). This sacred section is out of bounds for women, but men are permitted to pray there as rightly inscribed on the signpost.
