I came across this article and decided to share it for two reasons;
1, For you to Criticize it constructively with Facts and Figures or for you to applaud and share to your friends. The story of the true identity of Igbos in Nigeria and all others from the old Eastern Region who form parts of the New Biafra whose freedom is been championed by detained Nnamdi Kanu remains a mystery. Tons of write-ups spins up regularly trying to decode and trace the history of Biafrans. This is just another one backed up 30% by the bible.
Am here to give u another EDUCATIVE and INFORMATIVE Masterpiece. If u are Igbo then this write-up will help u know more About yourself and where u are coming from, but if u are not Igbo, now u have the opportunity to learn more about the Igbos and why they Exhibit some characters.
It is a very powerful masterpiece and it took me sometimes to gather them together. First of all, I will want u to bring out your BIBLE because 30% percent of whatever I will say are Recorded in the Holy book. Like I said, it took me some time to do this research,. For those of u who think that there is nothing connected to Igbos and Israel, and then I can tell u are 100% wrong. We are 100% Israelites.
Meanwhile u are free to criticism constructively, or put down an argument but in polite manner or Commend and comments positively. It simply for Educating the young ones And letting them know where they are coming from.
Read on to know where you fall into.
LET’s BEGIN ———————————– According to GENESIS 46 vs. 8. : JACOB had 12 Sons >> Namely;
Ruben & Simeon, Levi & Judah,
Dan & Naphtali, GAD &Asher,
Issacher & Zebulun, Joseph & Benjamin…
The 7th Son was GAD. And According to GENESIS 46 vs 16. GAD had SEVEN Sons>>
Namely; Ziphon &Haggi, Shunni & Ezbon, ERI & ARODI, ARELI.
Sometime in Middle East , famine struck and Jacob moved with his family and about 70 other relations to Egypt. But before then Joseph (which was 11th son of Jacob) had already been sold to Egypt by his Brothers, where he was Made Governor General under a King Pharaoh.
As time goes on they started suffering Persecutions from the Egyptians but ERI THE 5TH SON OF GAD foresaw the danger, persecution, and Wickedness coming and he Decided to live in Time with his two younger Brothers, ARODI & ARELI with one of his half Brothers.
They travelled through Ethiopia, Sudan and down towards West Africa and Landed AT A PLACE KNOWN AS AGULERI TODAY THROUGH OMABALA RIVER In ANAMBRA STATE , around 1305 Bc 1)
- ERI. ————–
ERI Established and lived close to the OMABALA river. He was wealthy and wise like his Great grandfather (Abraham). That is why Anambra state has the highest number of Rich people in Africa. ERI ; gave birth to 5 children ; (1) Agulu (2) Atta (3) Oba (4) Hebrew/Igbo (5) Menri.
(1) AGULU ; as the first son stayed back and Established in the place known as AguluERI (Agulu son of ERI) in Anambra state.
(2) ATTA; moved to upward North and Established a place known as “IGALA Kingdom ” and that is why the Overall KING is known as “”Atta of IGALA “”.. in Kogi state
(3) OBA ; left and founded a place known as Oba Kingdom in Anambra state.
(4) HEBREW ; which have been changed to mean Igbo. He was very powerful spiritual man and that is why people from this area are always very spiritual. He left and founded Igbo-Etiti, Igbo-Adagbe, Igbo- Eze (within Nsukka and parts of Anambra) .
(5) MENRI left and founded a place known as “”AgukwuNRi””. NRI Kingdom.
- ARODI . ——————
ARODI moved to a place known as “ARO- CHUKWU”… HE was very industrious and good at Art and Crafts.
(e.g Aba Ngwa people of Aba). ARODI gave birth to ; (1) Nembe (2) Ngwa (3) Abakaliki (4) Ogoni (5) Afikpo (6) Aro- ikot Ekpene (akwa Ibom ), (7) Aro- Echie(river state),( Arondizuogu).
During Slave trade Aro spread All over the world.
America, Cuba, Brazil… and “ARO-festival” is always been celebrated in CUBA. 3).
- ARELI. ——————
ARELI was a man with a lot of Wisdom. The native Tongue of his Descendants is today known as “Central Igbo”. And people from this Area have the highest number of graduates and professors in Igbo land.
ARELI gave birth to ;* (1) Owerri, (2) Umuahia (3) Diobu (River state ) , (4) Okigwe, (5) Orlu (6) Nkwerre (7) Elele (,Mba Ise) (9) Mba Ano…. e.t.c
- ERI half brothers. ————— ————
Eri half moved and founded IJAW nationality and Some part of Edo State… and many other parts of Niger delta.
EVIDENCES and SIMILARITIES ——————————
———— Now to verify some of the things I have said above.
(1) If u get to Aguleri there is a particular House known as OBI GAD (HOUSE OF GAD). Remember GAD was the 7th son of Jacob Gen 46:16 and GAD begets 5 Sons of which the last 3 (ERI, ARODI, AND ARELI AND A HALF BROTHER LEFT EGYPT TO WEST AFRICA. ) … The OBI GAD was the resting or relaxing place for ERI and his brothers and they named it OBI GAD in order to honour their father (GAD The 7th child of Jacob) . This OBI GAD was/is the first house built in IGBO LAND. This is the reason why every IGBO MAN always build a place called OBI/ OBU in his house in honour of his father and mainly for relaxation and in the olden Days, there is Always a family shrine or little Oracle, and why they worship ORACLE then was because they left EGYPT before GOD gave TEN COMMANDMENT To MOSES, WHICH ONE OF IT IS AGAINST WORSHIPING OF IDLE. (Even though Modern day IGBOS now build OBI as outside BAR without the Shrine, while, some Christians don’t build OBI anymore because of their Beliefs) .
It can also be Called ERI TEMPLE. The Obi GAD also serve as a Consulting place for some royal fathers from other community that have Direct root to ERI. ANOTHER EVIDENCE .
(2) At the Burial place of ERI, there is a TRINITY TREE standing on the grave site. These are three Trees but are strongly United and connected by Single Tap Root.
(3) ADA; means first Daughter in Isreal (Gen 4 vs 19- 20) and it means the same thing in Igbo language.
(4) Before an Igbo man makes a contribution in a public Gathering, he will shout “Igbo Kwenu ” and the people will respond “Yah” and “Yah” is short form of ” Yahweh “. Yahweh ” ; is the name of Jewish GOD.
(5) STAR OF DAVID AND some bronze medals Encrypted with Hebrew Codes were found in many part of the Igbo land.
(6) Israel manufactures 80% the world weapons and 70 % of USA weapons. Just like Igbos manufactured 80 % of all the weapons used during Biafran war. Which no other African Nation has done Igbos were only defeated during d war due to Hunger policy.
By now, we would have been manufacturing War weapons for Africans, and no country will have to go outside Africa to purchase weapons to fight Insurgency, if not for the bad policy of Nigeria. Igbos are the most highly technologically inclined in the whole of Africa.
We have the first black Indigenous Vehicle Manufacturers E.g. INNOSON MOTORS AND COSHARIS MOTORS, Indigenous MOBILE PHONE AND COMPUTER MANUFACTURERS e.g.
- A) SLOK MOBILE (Orji Uzo kalu)
- B) ZINOX COMPUTERS (Leo Stan Ekeh)
- C) SLOT MOBILE (NNAMDI EZEIGBO)
- D) Father of Internet and founder of The Fastest Computer in the world (PHILIP EMEAGWALI) …… ETC, etc.
(7) We carry home our dead one just like the Israel (Gen 49 vs 29-50). (Just like the Israel we were lead or ruled by Elders and Priest. There was no King in Israel until the Israelites appointed SAUL as the king of Israel and that was why Israelites were led by Prophet Moses and so many other prophets.
Israeli Ambassador (Noah Katz) Confirmed that Igbos are Jews. (Check Daily Sun Newspapers 28 March 2004). Therefore, Igbo Are the Engine Block of Africa, no wonder an Author with international Reputation; “Emefiena Ezennia” said that in “Biafra Africa Died”. We are good people, we love our neighbors, and we accommodate any body. We can live everywhere and develop anywhere. It is in our blood to develop. We need BIAFRA TO DEVELOP AFRICA.
Now every parents, endeavor to teach your children Igbo language and culture every time.
