God of Warriors

When Sapona attacks, he will attack  a person in their home.  If someone is in a house that is being attacked by Sapona, they must use Emu for protection.  When Sapona attacks, it is said that he will speak Arabic.  When fighting he cannot touch the ground.  No one defeats Sapona, not even Ogun.  Sapona was initiated to Ifa by Orunmila in the Odu Osa Ogbe.

Sapona  cannot give children but has the power to take them away.  There cannot be any smoke where he is fighting, corn (agbado), or whistling.  He also cannot fight in the rain.

Sapona eats alone.  When feeding him he must be separated from all other Orisa.

Sapona likes to eat Emu, Iyan Agbadu, obuko (male goat), asoro, adalu (beans and corn).
