Human sacrifies is not practice by all yorubas.
In fact, as far as I know, human sacrifice is not practised at all in Yoruba land! At least not since we became human ourselves, say since about the 1400s, though that is a guess. There are of course people who have used human beings in rituals and still do though. But it is in no way a common or accepted thing in Yorubaland.

That said, every society has at one time or the other sacrificed human beings to their Gods. The God of Abraham, for instance, decided at some time that he would no more require human sacrifices implying that he had done so before. It is what is signified in the story of Abraham and his son Isaac, or Ishmael as Islamic myth has it. So I would not argue that Yorubas, and all other African tribes did too.

it seems to be a contradition somewhere.

Happens sometimes.

All people, at some time in their history, performed human sacrifices, but I am not aware than any are currently being performe in Yorubaland now.

Is that any better kendan?
