It is mostly carried out in the Yoruba community. Most people doubt the authenticity of this system and are not even aware of its similarities with Computer Science. Further to this there are a few literature in this area of study. In this work effort was made to bring out salient similarities between the field of computer science and the act of ifa divination. An extensive explanation of the divination system was made, what it means and its origin and why people seek after it. We have presented an extensive explanation of the Ifa divination system, proved its existence and authenticity, given and explained its similarities with Computer Science and presented a reference data for future work in this study.
