We were informed that a group of slavers led by an Igbo lady was visiting Igbo villages and recruiting Igbo youths to play football for teams abroad, these youths were then shipped to Lebanon and forced into slavery to help rebuild Lebanon – they were never heard from again.
Any structure built with the blood of Igbo or Umu Chukwu (Children of the Most High) will come tumbling down, a lesson that Nigeria is yet to learn, to its detriment. Why should I have any sympathy for Lebanese Christians?
When we deliberately look down on other peoples, treat them as dirt, because of their color even as we have no qualms forcing them into slavery or being partners in the ploy to disenfranchise them, we deserve whatever we force karma to dish out to us.
Religion, the world over, has been used as a tool of oppression, as these religions fight for their gods that are unable to fight for themselves.
Was Gowon, Obasanjo, …, name them, not ALL Christians? Is Britain not a so-called Christian nation? Yet, in coalition with the Fulani terrorist Islamists they engineered one of the bloodiest and most brutal era in African history, the deliberate slaughter of more than 3.5 million of their fellow humans. Not still satiated with this orgy in drinking the blood of the innocent, they set about condemning the survivors of this Genocaust (Igbo genocide and holocaust) to unspeakable misery and perpetual slavery thinking that Chukwu Igbo (the God of the Igbo) Chi Ukwu Abia Ama (The Omnipotent One with all answers)will be silent.
I have returned to the spirituality of my fore-parents; a spirituality built on the foundation of truth, Eziokwu bu ndu (Truth = Life) and on ‘Egbe belu Ugo belu (the inalienable right of the weak and strong to co-exist in peace); a spirituality that cautions that we reap what we sow (karma).
The Igbo ancients called themselves Ndi Eze (priests and priestesses) which was later corrupted to mean kings and queens. The question then becomes priests and priestesses to whom? If the Igbo has always worshiped one God (‘Chi Ukwu Abia Ama’ or ‘the ALL Knowledgeable God’) and also since the Igbo are one of the very few nations that never elevated a human to the status of god (Mmadu aburo Chukwu or no man/woman is god), it can be confidently stated that they were priests and priestesses of the Most High, Chi Ukwu Abia Ama!
As Ndi Eze (priests and priestesses) of the Most High after the order of Melchisedec (Hebrews 7: 1 – 6) let us acknowledge and give thanks to the Most High, the leader of ALL movements based on the greatest philosophical equation of life, ‘eziokwu bu Ndu or Truth = life’ and the inalienable rights of both the strong and weak to co-exist in peace, who has made us gods over those that torment us.
In re-affirmation of the ancient Igbo adage based on the law of Karma, ‘Egbe belu, Ugo belu; Nke si ibe ya ebena, nku kwa ya’, or the affirmation of the Most High’s granted inalienable right of the weak and strong to co-exist in peace and its accompanying consequence to those who break this natural law;
May peace and prosperity be the lot of ALL ethnic nationalities and/or nations that wish other ethnic nationalities and/or nations well – ISEEEE (Let it be so);
May hell on earth be the lot of ALL the ethnic nationalities and/or nations that seek to exterminate other peoples, whose modus operandi remain unchanged even as they seek to reap where they did not sow, and may they know no peace – ISEEEE (Let it be so)!
“For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
And verily they that are the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take titles of the people according to the law, that is of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.”
Hebrews 7: 1 – 6.
The Igbo ancients called themselves Ndi Eze, those that are priests and priestesses or those that are kings and queens. Since we know that they worshipped One God, they hence considered themselves priests and priestesses of the Most High God – which is therefore our heritage!
Now consider the highlighted portion produced below!
“Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life”
An individual whose DNA is from the root of the Y-chromosome tree traceable to 340,000 years who still retained some knowledge from some of the most advanced civilizations before an individual from a group whose DNA is from the root of the Y-chromosome tree traceable to (60,000 – 140,000) came into being, would appear as a god to them. Hence the term “Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life” would be applicable.
The Igbo ancients have always used the term ‘Igbo bu mmuo – Igbo are spirits’ to describe themselves. One of Igbo folklores describes the Igbo as spirits who had come to the human world for commerce but were overtaken by nightfall and could not return home. They were hence forced to settle amongst and inter-marry with the natives.
The recent discovery leading to the reclassification of the dating of the first man from between (60,000 – 140,000) to 340,000 years should raise some hesitation before we dismiss these folklores or legends offhand.
“All previously compared DNA samples pointed to a common Y chromosome traced back to man who lived between 60,000 and 140,000 years ago. But Perry’s DNA sample broke the trend, not matching up with this common ancestor.
“It’s a cool discovery,” Jon Wilkins of the Ronin Institute in Montclair, N.J., told New Scientist. “We geneticists have been looking at Y chromosomes about as long as we’ve been looking at anything. Changing where the root of the Y-chromosome tree is at this point is extremely surprising.”
After the initial tests on Perry’s DNA, geneticists at the University of Arizona conducted further tests to confirm the anomaly. The Y chromosome in Perry’s test matched up with those of 11 men who all lived in one village in Cameroon.”
Father of all humankind is 340,000 years old

And the updated version below firmly places Perry beyond a shadow of doubt in the ancient Igbo area of interest.
“The first anatomically modern human fossils date back only 195,000 years, so Perry’s Y chromosome lineage split from the rest of humanity long before our species appeared.
What are the implications? One possibility is that Perry’s Y chromosome may have been inherited from an archaic human population that has since gone extinct. If that’s the case, then some time within the last 195,000 years, anatomically modern humans interbred with an ancient African human.
There is some supporting evidence for this scenario. In 2011, researchers examined human fossils from a Nigerian site called Iwo Eleru. The fossils showed a strange mix of ancient and modern features, which also suggested interbreeding between modern and archaic humans. “The Cameroon village with an unusual genetic signature is right on the border with Nigeria, and Iwo Eleru is not too far away,” says Hammer.
Chris Stringer at the Natural History Museum, London, was involved in the Iwo Eleru analysis, and says the new Y chromosome result highlights the need for more genetic data from modern-day sub-Saharan Africans. “The oldest known fossil humans in both West Africa at Iwo Eleru and Central Africa at Ishango [in Democratic Republic of the Congo] show unexpectedly archaic features, so it certainly looks like we have a more complex scenario for the evolution of modern humans in Africa.”
