The First Igbos Had A Judeo-Nubian (Egyptian) Origin (New Info)

Recall that Igbodefender.com has been emphasizing in various articles over the years that the first Igbos have a Judeo-Nubian (Egyptian) origin.

And today, we will look at those ancient connections with the Jews and Nubian Egyptians from the prism of substitutional atonement, a religious practice known to both cultures.

About Odinani Museum Which Contains Over 5000 Igbo Artifacts!

“It is more of an academic centre where you could study the origin of Igbo due to the display of relevant paraphernalia of ancient kings of Nri kingdom.

“This also informs how Ndigbo are contained with their democratic communal leadership and war tools in ancient days with over 5,000 artefacts.” –

General Overseer of Liberation Temple of Absolute God, Dr Ramas Asuzu

The idea of the Odinani Museum was conceived by an anthropologist, late Prof. Angulu Onwuejiogwu and British anthropologist Thomas Shaw over 70 years ago. 

The museum was renovated by a philanthropist, Engineer Charles Tabansi after an unfortunate period of collapse (Generous Equianoism).

Igbos in the US and other countries, please, whenever you visit Igbo Land, take a trip down to this site. It is at Nri, Anambra State. It will give you a great experience to take back. 

Promote it to your friends back home and on social media to attract tourism to Igbo Land.

I call on the administrators of the museum to have replicas of artifacts on hand to sell to visitors as a souvenir.

This museum needs a website to promote it. Philanthropists should liaise with the management to sponsor one. 

You can post your experiences in the comments any time you visit the museum. Contact us if you want photos of the trip published for other members of the Igbo Defender community to see.

Daalu nu.

Oba as an originally Igbo title: Nri, the great Igbo kingdom has an Oba (we no tell you before?!)

We have been telling you that the title Oba has Igbo origin. It was first used by the Obatala royal family of the formerly Igbo town of Ile Ife in today’s Yorubaland.

This was before the coming of Oduduwa The Great, who has established the Yoruba race.

Remember that the book History Of The Igbo World tells the story of how the Obatala family left NRI to


settle at Ile Ife. O kowatara lu anyi etu ha si we hapu NRI we ga ebe ha kporo Ile Ife.

Today, we find that there is an Oba in NRI. As in Oba is a traditional title there.

The present Oba of NRI is Chief (Nze) Emelie Okika. He is the head of the Nze na Ozo class of chiefs in that all-important Igbo kingdom.

You might be asking yourself whether the Oba title if Nri has been there since ancient times or whether it is a revival of an ancient title. Trust us… Soon you will get an in-depth answer.

Meanwhile, God bless the Igbos. And God bless the Yorubas. Like England and France, they must have an entente cordial.
