There are some IGBO People who claim that the tribal idol worship that is practised by some in their country is not the religion of their ancestors. See this Igbo man’s video and channel where he explains that through research he has found that his ancestors worshipped The Most High as taught to Abraham and Moses. The man claims those that spring from Igbos are the only true hebrews. Now that point may not be true but the Igbo have a record of their Hebrew history.
It has also been said that Igbo people were not Hebrew and adopted the religion when the Hebrews arrived. I have found that even if this were the case they adopted the Hebrew religion in a century so long ago that their connection is a true one.
There are plenty of people out there who claim that this is incorrect however this post will explore the Igbo claims. In the video the presenter calls out John’s teachings as being inconsistent with the word of The Most High. This is similar to a video I watched which I have posted here https://youtu.be/zASWUqMm_JM it looks at how the Roman Catholic Church has become corrupt and Satanic. The reporter points to the role of the Pope of being one of a false prophet because he claims to be able to heal people of their sins and because the Roman Catholics created the New Testament to replace the old. A meeting was put together by the Roman Catholics where they called Pope’s, Priests and Vicars to decide on whether they would conclude in the New Testament that their was a trinity in which Jesus was God. This is considered by some to be blasphemous. If there is one God then to state Jesus is Lord wouldn’t be correct this has created different doctrines and branches of teachings stemming from the Old and New Testament. I personally look at it as God became manifest in the flesh and was still the One God. I think it is important to note that the Igbo Jewish do not follow the Christian New Testament. Below is the contention between the Jewish/Hebrews and Christian’s.
The Igbo man also makes these claims in this video. https://youtu.be/a0dCy54unlM In which he calls out the chapter John and states it conflicts with the Old Testament and that there were people who set to make The Almighty name obsolete and replace it with Lord or God but referring to Ba’al. In his video the real name of God he breaks down what the Most High said to moses “I am that I am” “Aiyah Ashar Aiyah” in Hebrew. (Pronunciation in English shortened Eye-yah)
Wikipedia states the following: An early (and widely influential) statement from an Igbo man, Olaudah Equiano, a Christian-educated freed slave, suggested a migratory origin of the Igbo Jews. He remarked in his autobiography of 1789 on
Many scholars dispute the Igbo claim of Jewish ancestry and religious teachings. I have been reading the bible on and off for a very long time and note that it details how the people of Israel fled into East and West Africa. On closer inspection it also states Noah became the progenitor of the dark races NOT THE NEGROES but the Egyptians, Libyans and Caanites. This suggests that the Israelites who fled Israel were of a different tribe. Judah??? Judeo that is what they called their kingdom in West Africa. Of course this is all speculation but interesting that different tribes tell the same migration story. They crossed the river nile when it was low from Israel migrated through Sudan and Ethiopia to Benin Dahomey, Congo, Nigeria Ghana and some moved further south to Bantu regions.
The Soudan Sudan stretched across the West to East of Africa see the first picture below. At periods in time during Songhai and Kush kingdoms there was western Sudan named on maps and modern Sudan in the East at the same time. The people were considered the same. The Bible describes the people as the Negroes not the Africans and map producers later show this in their exploration of the region.
Eze A.E. Chukwuemeka Eri, the king of a community in Aguleri, claims he presides over the throne of Gad’s son, Eri.Wearing a white shirt with the Star of David stitched on the front, King Eri points to a calendar on the wall of his palace that lists the names of his 33 predecessors. He has no doubts that Eri is his ancestor. He has even acquired land to establish an educational center for the study of Jewish culture.”Israelites and Igbos are brothers,” he says with a broad smile.King Eri, like many, claims that the Igbo are the Jews of West Africa.
They believe they are descendants of at least one of Israel’s lost tribes. In the eighth century B.C. the Assyrians invaded Israel’s northern kingdom forcing 10 tribes into exile. Historians say it is not unlikely that these tribes migrated westward to Africa.Throughout history, large populations of dispersed Jews also became “lost” through forced conversions and cultural assimilation.”There is evidence that is scientific that the Igbos descended from the people that evolved in Israel,” says Remy Ilona. He began investigating the stories from his youth more than a decade ago.”When I grew up I heard, like virtually every Igbo here, that the Igbo people came from Israel,” the Abuja-based lawyer says. His field work in Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Mali led him to conclude that Igbo and Jewish culture are not just similar, but “identical.”In his latest book, Ilona draws parallels between Igbo rituals and customs and those practiced by Jews. Shared traditional practices include circumcising male children eight days after birth, refraining from eating “unclean” or tabooed foods, mourning the dead for seven days, celebrating the New Moon and conducting wedding ceremonies under a canopy. Some historians have noted that the Igbo were practicing these customs before their exposure to the Bible and missionaries.
Controversy over Igbo Origin: ‘We have proof that Umueri is the cradle of Ndigbo’
The group, in its report endorsed by nine of its members, described Aguleri & Nri, while partners in FOISTERING an inconsistent and inaccurate story on the Igbo people, which they termed fallacious & misleading. The report was signed by Comrade Biafra Diboh, Chief.Daniel Obi Aninwetalu, Mr.Obi Kachi Nzedigwe, Mr. Titus Ugo Nwoye, Comrade Sonny Onochie , Ms. Purity Nwofia, Mr.Oliver Chinweze, Mr.Chike Nnamdi and Sixtus Chinedu.
The group insisted that majority of the people who make up the Igbo of today were those who came from Israel while the rest migrated from Igala and other places. According to the group, the founders of the earliest settlers of the town are from Eri clan of Israel who left the Israelites during their time in wilderness (post-Egypt exile), migrated from East Jordan towards the Mediterranean Sea and later crossed back to Egypt from there to Ethiopia, then to Southern Sudan from where they sailed through the rivers and finally found themselves in Omambala or Anambra valley where they settled. “They now named the place after their clan, Umu-Eri, which means children of Eri. The migration was long-time ago before Saul was made King over Israel”, GULF said. It went on: “At the new settlement, the culture of Hebrew worshipping, circumcision, burial & other customs remained visibly the same with some modifications. There was no king or culture of king-making until the invasion of the land by the second wave of migration from the Igala descents who brought the system of priest-king along with it. “The Bini Kingdom also tried introducing its kingship by imposing the Ezes & Onowu but with limited success. However, the Umueri people resisted the cultural encroachment from them until the colonial administrators foisted warrant chief system on them.
Relationship between Umunri & ancient Umueri “The original settlers of the communities that make up the Umunri clan are descendants of the first settlers of Umueri. Therefore the people of Umunri, otherwise called Nri Kingdom, are part of our ancient town. It is a fact that amongst numerous people that constitute the Umunri Kingdom, the descendants of Umueri people are regarded as aborigines or the head of their various communities. Those communities were even named after founders of Umueri lineages. The original settlers in Nri are from Nri-aka in old Ugume ana of Ikenga Umueri. “Nri people were actually occupying the large expanse of land between Ugume Umueri and Ikem Nando (then in old Umueri town) which today subsist in Ugwu Nzu. “There is a popular road path which exists till date which the the Nri people use for their itineraries from Ugume to Ugunzu and is called ‘EZI NRI AKA’ till today. The vast area was inhabited by the descendants of Eri up to Omabala na Ezu before the present settlement of aguleri which is a recent settlement. “The Ire and Oraeri were living in the portion of land lying between Agu Eneneanya and Agu Oda in today Ifite Umueri and Nneyi Umueri. The Ire people abandoned this area in flight due to the war between them and the Igalas. “Today the Ire people can be found in Abba, Obosi, Ogidi, Umuoji Enugu Ukwu. Occupying these portion of lands today are several artefacts’ and monuments, shrines, etc left behind by the fleeing Ires. “The Umunri oral tradition also confirmed that they once lived amongst our people here in Omambala valley. The Nri people of Umueri extraction had no king just like every other true Igbo town until the arrival of the Igala settlers who were forced to scatter and live amongst all Igbo towns in northern Igbo communities as a result of the ancient war that was waged by the people of ancient Umueri clan. It was the Igala elements that brought the issue of kingship in Nri. It was a foreign culture amongst the earliest settlers. Migration & trace of Umueri people “The founders of ancient Umueri community was not just a single man and woman as fallacious story peddled around by people, but group of people amongst whom was Eri, a great hunter and warrior from Eri clan of Gad’s tribe of Isreal around I,300BC.(See Gen46:16, Numbers 26:16). They found themselves in Omambala valley where they settled.
Original ancient Umueri people settled amongst basically in all northern Igbo communities notably Nteje(Umueri/Umuevi Nteje), Umueri Awka, Umueri Ogbunike, Umueri Okija, Umunagu- Achala, Amåleri Ichida, Umueri Awkuzu, Umueri Nkwelle Ezunaka. The Influence of Bini Kingdom “Another group that impacted its culture on the Omambala people are the Binis known formerly as the Idu in the local parlance. At the height of Bini Kingdom, it annexed territories at will through conquest, but the emerging communities in Omambala valley through juju & war charms were able to stop the Binis. In mutual pact agreed upon, Umueri and other communities in Omambala communities, through their powerful medicine men & charm makers, provided the needed spiritual support to the Bini Kingdom whose standing army was busy fighting numerous wars during the ancient days. In reward for their effort, the Binis rewarded and imposed them as Eze & Onowu Iyasele. This is how all those parading themselves as royal homes in northern part of Igboland emerged. It was not part of our culture and so anyone telling you that at the death of Eri, his fore fathers became kings and that he is the 100th King of Eri is being far from truth. Our culture has no room for such political stool.

Wikipedia also goes on to describe the Igbo Jewish community which I have detailed below.
Certain Nigerian communities with Judaic practices have been receiving help from individual Israelis and American jews who work in Nigeria, outreach organizations like the American Kulanu, and African-American Jewish communities in America. Jews from outside Nigeria founded two synagogues in Nigeria, which are attended and maintained by Igbo Jews. Because no formal census has been taken in the region, the number of Igbo in Nigeria who identify as Jews is not known. There are currently 26 synagogues of various sizes. In 2008 an estimated 30,000 Igbos were practicing some form of Judaism. Others have cited a more conservative figure of 3,000 to 5,000 Igbo practicing Judaism.
Ancient Egyptians wrote the Holy Bible
I recently came across a discussion shown below
Igbo’s and Yoruba’s came out of the great Bini Empire. The Bini are the founding father of present day Nigeria, and again trace their ancestral roots to the migration of the black Hebrews from the Nile Valley. The Bini Empire covered a vast territory: Republic of Benin (named after it’s founding father the Bini empire), the Ga tribe in present day Ghana, Togo, and parts of Cameroon.
What I was going to do next is research who the Caanites were however I came across this post which I will be exploring further which tries to claim Caanites were ONLY white:
Sidon, the ancient city was known as the VERY POWERFUL BAAL PEOPLE and they were all white people in the beginning. They then invaded “LOWER NUBIA” renaming it to “EGYPT”, which was the name of “HAM’S WIFE”…(EGYPTUS).
Before there was an Egypt all of the land was called “NUBIA”. When GOD tell us the story of how “JAPETH’S LAND WAS STOLEN” He is talking about “Lower Nubia” that was taken from the Nubians and renamed to Egypt.
The Sidonians invaded Nubia in the second dynasty and would launch attacks into Nubia from Egypt. The Nubians were the first “PHAROAH’S” and were more than known for their “GOLD”.
The Israelites are the cousins of the Nubians because “ABRAHAM” lived in the black city states (HARAAN) of Nubia for 70 years before moving into the land of Canaan.
If the Canaanites were black people SUMER, NUBIA, CUSH, PUNT, MOROE AND MORE WOULD HAVE BEEN “WHITE CITIES” BUT THEY WERE NOT….THEY WERE ALL “BLACK CITIES AND THE FIRST KNOWN CITIES ON EARTH”.
SUMER WAS THE RULING HEAD OF ALL BLACK CITY STATES AND THE CANAANITES WERE ALL IN ANCIENT ISRAEL. THE CANAANITES FIRST CITY WAS “BABYLON” AND IT WAS A CITY OF “WHITES, INDIANS & ASIANS”.
NIMROD WAS THE “FIRST ARABIAN” AND HE ALONG WITH THE ASIANS MADE BABYLON. BABYLON WAS USED AS A “FORT” TO ATTACK THE BLACK CITY STATES AND END “SUMER’S RULE OVER THE LAND or BLACK RULE”.
THE SIDONIANS WOULD LAUNCH ATTACKS INTO “NUBIA” FROM EGYPT AND BEFORE BABYLON ALL CANAANITES WOULD LAUNCH ATTACKS ON “SUMER”, MAINLY “THE HITTITES”, WHO WERE ALL “ASIAN” (CANAANITES).
IT WAS THE HITTITES WHO ATTACKED THE SUMERAIN KINGDOM, KNOWN AS “THE BLACK HEADS”.
ABRAHAM WAS THE FATHER OF “THE ISRAELITES” AND THE ISRAELITES WERE “SLAVES” IN EGYPT. RAMASEES WAS THE “PHAROAH’ AT THE TIME THE ISRAELITES WERE IN BONDAGE AND RAMASEES WAS THE HERO OR WAR HERO FOR ALL OF THE “WHITE PEOPLE” OF EGYPT.
THE ONLY WHITE PEOPLE ON EARTH IN THOSE DAYS WERE ONLY “THE SIDONIANS”, WHO WERE THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF “SIDON”, WHO WAS THE SON OF “CANAAN”. THE WHITES OF EGYPT WERE ALL CALLED “THE SIDONIANS”.
THE SIDONAINS WERE ALL “BAAL WORSHIPERS”.
BLACK PEOPLE WERE NEVER “BAAL WORSHIPERS”!!!!!!!!
ALL OF THE NUBIAN & SUMERAIN KINGS WOULD DECLARE THE SIDONIANS AS “THE UN-CLEAN’ AND THE NICKNAME “DEVIL” WAS GIVEN TO THEM AS A WHOLE BECAUSE OF THEIR “UN-GODLY WAYS”.
THE BAAL GOD’S WERE “WHITE GOD’S OR WHITE PEOPLE”.
MANY POEMS OF THE ANCIENT BABYLONIAN GOD’S AND THE SIDONIAN GOD’S WERE THE SAME AND THEY WERE MOSTLY ALL “WHITE GOD’S”.
SLAVERY TO THE BLACKS WAS DONE SIMPLY BECAUSE “THEY REFUSED TO WORSHIP “THE CANAANITES FALSE GOD’S”!!! THE PHAROAH OF EGYPT RAMASEES CONSIDERED HIMSELF AS “GOD” AND ALL WHITES CALLED HIM “GOD”. HE WAS A SIDONIAN, WHO WAS WHITE AND HE HATED ALL BLACKS.
YOU HAVE TO STUDY “THE BLACK KINGS OF NUBIA” TO FULLY KNOW THIS INFO.
THE ISRAELITES WERE ALL “BLACK PEOPLE”, THE COUSINS OF THE NUBIANS, THE CUSHITES AND THE PUNTAINS. THE PROOT TO THIS IS “KING DAVID”, THE ISRAELITE KING. HIS BEST FRIENDS WERE “THE CUSHITES & THE NUBIANS” AND THEY WERE CONSIDERED AS THE SAME FAMILY.
KING SOLOMON’S BEST FRIENDS WERE “THE NUBIANS’ AND “THE QUEEN OF SHEBA” WAS A WIFE OF HIS. SHEBA MEAN “BLACK OR DARK SKINNED”.
KING SOLOMON’S SON BY THE QUEEN OF SHEBA IS WHO CREATED “THE FIRST DYNASTY OF ETHIOPIA (950 BC)” AFTER ALL OF THE WARS AGAINST “THE CANAANITES’.
KING SOLOMON AND KING DAVID BOTH WOULD STATE IN THE OPEN THAT THEY WERE ALL ‘BLACK PEOPLE AND BLACK QUEENS AND KINGS”. THERE ARE MANY POEMS OF KING SOLOMON AND THE QUEEN OF SHEBA AND IN MANY OF THEIR POEMS IT IS CLEARLY STATE BY THE KING OF ISRAEL THAT “HE IS BLACK SKINNED & THE SUN HAS BURNT HIM JUST AS IT HAS BURNT ALL OF ISRAEL, FOR HE WAS HATED BY THE ENEMY, WHO HATE THEIR SKIN. HE ALSO STATE THAT HE WAS THE SLAVE IN EGYPT AND HOW THE LORD MADE THEM ALL FREE.
All of the children of “ETHIOPIA” are the children of “KING SOLOMON (THE ISRAELITE KING) & THE QUEEN OF SHEBA”.
IN THE ANCIENT PAST THE CANAANITES WERE ALL VERY DEEP IN SERPENT WORSHIP, WHICH IS CALLED BAAL WORSHIP AND BAAL WORSHIP HAS “LUCIFER AS IT’S GOD”.
THE COLOR “RED” IS THE “BIRTHRIGHT OF THE SIDONIANS” AND THEIR CITIES OF BIRTH WAS “THE TOWER OF BABEL, SIDON, TRIPOLI, BABYLON, EGYPT THEN ROME. ALL OF THESE PLACES WERE PAINTED THE COLOR “RED”.
What I will say is Nimrod was likely black or a black arab mix as was Ishmael. Also Ishmael was born of Hagar and Abraham and so would be an Israelite because of his father.
As to the writers statement below
“NIMROD WAS THE “FIRST ARABIAN” AND HE ALONG WITH THE ASIANS MADE BABYLON.”
THE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE LIKELY LOOKED LIKE THE PICTURES BELOW
Now Sarah had a maid named Hagar, an Egyptian woman, who ran away from her mistress, and saw an angel by a well, and afterward came back to Sarah. She, too, had a child and his name was Ishmael. So now there were two boys in Abraham’s tent, the older boy, Ishmael, the son of Hagar, and the younger boy, Isaac, the son of Abraham and Sarah.
Ishmael did not like the little Isaac, and did not treat him kindly. This made his mother Sarah very angry, and she said to her husband:
“I do not wish to have this boy Ishmael growing up with my son Isaac. Send away Hagar and her boy, for they are a trouble to me.”
And Abraham felt very sorry to have trouble come between Sarah and Hagar, and between Isaac and Ishmael; for Abraham was a kind and good man, and he was friendly to them all.
But the Lord said to Abraham, “Do not be troubled about Ishmael and his mother. Do as Sarah has asked you to do, and send them away. It is best that Isaac should be left alone in your tent, for he is to receive everything that is yours. I the Lord will take care of Ishmael, and will make a great people of his descendants, those who shall come from him.”
It appears to me the Arabs and Shemitic “Negroes” were classed as the same people from the same tribe by Europeans who explored the region. Religious differences have kept Arabs and Shemitic negroes/africans apart and sometimes caused war and influenced slavery.
Some Nigerians claim they were the first ones on the earth and lived before Adam so to read the above post which throws out there that the Caanites are not black is new to me but some of the information does appear true. In West Africa some people still worship the snake and the curses fit black people taken into the slave trade and so where it refers to China I am sceptical however they do not worship one God so also fit some of the prophesies in the bible. Ramses I also believe was atleast part African so see some flaws with the statement above.
It is also possible that the Caanites were once black but during migration became white after thousands of years in a cold climate with little sun.
