One shouldnt be surprised at how and why igbos claim there arent igbo muslims when you remember how they turned the early igbos that accepted christianity to outcasts and the level of maltreatment they were subjected to.

Da infamous: There was palpable tension in the commercial city of Onitsha yesterday when the Muslim community comprising Igbos, Hausas and Yorubas resisted alleged plot by the Anambra state government to demolish their Central Mosque located close to the Bridgehead market. Saturday Nation gathered that the Muslims numbering over 1000 and chanting “Allah is the greatest”, maintained that the plan by the state government to destroy their place of worship was a fallout of the cold war against them in the state.
Addressing journalists yesterday during the protest, the leader of the Muslims, Alhaji Habib Faruk, said they have already compiled with the state government’s decision to beautify the Bridgehead and Upper Iweka axis by removing all their shops as directed, adding the said mosque does not fall within the area marked for demolition.
Alhaji Faruk who led the protest, condemned the manner members of the Anambra state task force under the Transition Committee Chairman of Onitsha South descended on the Muslims during their Friday prayer and forced them out of the mosque.
He maintained that the action of the state government might not be unconnected with the current activities of the dreaded Boko Haram in some Northern parts of the country.He pleaded with the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, to prevail on the state government to approach the issue with caution in view of the security situation in the country.
“We are not resisting the decision of the state government to beautify the Bridgehead but the plan to demolish our place of worship is more political and could result in breakdown of law and order because no Muslim would stand by and watch their place of worship demolished for no just cause”
Meanwhile, the Transition Committee Chairman of Onitsha South, Mr. Okechukwu Ezeani, said the actionof the state government was not politically or religiously influenced, but a measure to clean up the entrance to the state.
He said “we are not targeting any mosque.Even if a cathedral is standing in the place marked out for demolition, it would be pulled down, so, the insinuation that the state government is witch hunting Muslims is unfounded and malicious”
It took the intervention of the Commander of the 302 Artillery Regiment, Onitsha , Col J. T Durowaiye, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Balla Nasarawa and the Onitsha Area Commander, Mr. B.C. Wordu who drafted detachments of armed security men to the area to bring the situation under control.

rhymz: hahahahah. . The name sounds like Fraud to me.
I have heard of Igbos who became muslim just to get by and gain advantage in places like the north and Arab countries. Are those stories realy true or they are just nominal Muslims who in practise are non-existent. . Abeg talk another thing nwa nna.
By the way, did you say Ndu-chucks is a northerner for real? Chineke ekwe la ihe ojo. . Hmmmm, why the need to use an Igbo sounding moniker, is he that insecure?
guy go to nsukka,afikpo and orlu.you will find some igbo muslims there

solgee: My honest opinion is this. If the location of the mosque is trully affecting the beautification process of the area then it has to go, but the government should provide an alternative site for them. However, it is very very bad for people who dont have correct information about the whole thing to start ranting rubbish about christians or Anambra government. The christians too knows how to kill. But are only acting in accordance to the word of God Almighty. Christians love their neighbours and the religion is of peace both in act and deed

Did you say provide an alternative site for them? Did the govt provide any site for Michmerah Motors before it was sacked from it's previous site at upper iweka? They shld go and buy land for their mosque site. Dat if anybody sells to them with this their kind of aggression.

You muslims can lie to prove ur facts. Why do these igbo muslims use to show themselves only to you hausa and yoruba muslims and hide themselves from we (their brothers)?. Or do you muslims know us more than we know ourselves? THERE ARE NO IGBO MUSLIMS!

abdurrazaq: To those who believe that (we) the Yorubas are not “real muslims“, there is a sentence we recite during salat - Semi‘a LLAHU limon hamidaHU - meaning ‘Only GOD knows HIS true worshipper‘. (We) the Yorubas are the pride of Islam in Nigeria and Africa.
To the affected worshippers in Onitsha, if the government wants the mosque demolished so be it, just make sure any other site for a new mosque should be approved by the planning authorities to avoid future demolition. Letting the government have their way on the issue doesn‘t mean they failed as muslims rather, it is an act of belief on their part.
May GOD bless us with peace in NIGERIA. AMYN

rhymz: Do you know of any Igbo man person that is a muslim since you are so convinced that they exist? Am not talking about alja haram posing as Alhaji Uche and his many bigoted monikers, give us concrete proof of an Igbo muslim.

How do you give concrete evidence on an anonymous forum?

Just how?


I met TWO Igbo muslims while in the university. Its left to you to believe or do otherwise. I'm christian myself and I have got nothing to gain or lose if Igbo muslims exist or not.

The igbos should learn a thing or two from the days of the Spanish inquisition . I personally think we need our own IGBO INQUISITION where by we annihilate those who try to bring STRANGE AND EVIL religions to our region . We don't need any so called "religion of peace" in IGBO LAND . We are good with worshipping the most high . It has always been our way and it should remain so !!

what do you mean by forced Igbo muslims in the north? I am presently in Sokoto, this is arguably the seat of Nigeria's islamic power yet there are churches and many Igbo people living here in Peace. Which one again be forced muslim for this we era? Guy relax biko and say things as they are. Can somebody show us one Igbo muslim, all these long epistles will not do anything, any desperate Igbo person trying to curry favour from rich and influential muslims can claim to be muslim and even change his name to some funny muslim name, it still does not make him an Igbo muslim. Show us proof of a practising Igbo muslim that all and sundry knows.

you ignorant people think islam is not part of igbo, ever.
i am sure the animists used to be this ignorant about christianity entering indigbo.

i am sure that igbo men and women are fast becoming muslims.
i know many and indeed, i am married to one of them.

now swallow this better pill.

InshaAllah islam will wax stronger, bigger and prominent in the igbo ethnic group. Amin.
