Igbos: The Jews of Nigeria?


 

Interesting film about Igbos that claim to be Jewish (claiming descent from one of the 12 “lost tribes of Israel”. They practise  Judaism, rather than Igbos’ traditional Christianity. However not  everyone believes this claims, with some alleging it is just a myth.

  1. I did not watch the film but my personal opinion is that this is laughable.Take it from someone who knows better. The genesis of this laughable claim comes from the Onitsha people who claim not to be Igbo-Nnamdi Azikiwe’s people.I need not say any more.However. I encourage people to read Zik’s 1949 speech where he also claimed to be Igbo. Need I add to this discombobulation?

  2. God help us to know
