The Ooni is a bridge builder and I like him for that. Well, he is educated and exposed so I'm not surprised.
Tribali sentiment is for low lives.

Ooni, may you live long. cool

Ooni of Ife, 25 African Americans for Anambra Eri festival


The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi and about 25 African Americans from United States are expected to be in Anambra state for this year’s Eri festival in Enugwu Aguleri, Anambra East local government area of the state.

The traditional ruler of the community, Eze Chukwuemeka Eri who disclosed this on Monday to newsmen at his palace, said the event scheduled for Saturday would also attract other dignitaries from all walks of life.



He said the visiting African Americans were among 200 black Americans who have traced their root to the Igbo race following DNA test.

The monarch added that the visitors would be taken to the Aganabo Ezu n’ezu Omamala Confluence to pay homeage to Eri, the father of the Igbo race.

He said, “We have received over 200 African Americans who traced their root to Igbo. They come in batches every year.



‘This year about 25 are coming; the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi would also grace the Eri festival.


“The visitors will be taken to the Aganabo Ezu n’ezu Omamala Confluence to pay homepage to Eri, the father of the Igbo race”.

Earlier, Chairman of planning committee of the event, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka said the festival offered Ndigbo opportunity to retrace their root and unite with their ancestors.

“Igbo people inherited travelling from their forefather known as Eri who is said to have migrated from Israel and landed at Aganabo Ezu n’ezu Omamala River Confluence.”

He assured that all had been put in place including maximum security to ensure a hitch free ceremony.

Stop all these ERI - ISRAEL myth. It's bogus. Igbos are the Descendants of Biblical ISRAELITES but not from one man called ERI. Igbos are mixed 12 tribes of Israel.

All human races started with the Igbo.

Every language is a sub language of Igbo.

Go and study the Jews language and you will be shocked it is Igbo.

Just like many English words - man like Madu, piano like pi anu, metropolitan like mi toro puta and so on.

The truth is, among all tribes, Igbos are the the most decorated and bless in this nation....
despite devastation of civil war,marginalization and discrimination, perpetual tribal hate by other tribe in the nation,negligence they are still waxing stronger everyday.....this is an evidence that God's hand is upon them,they are indeed among the tribes of Israel....I implore we give them chance to rule and transform Nigeria into a better place to be, or we let them go harness their God given talents and use it to build a new great nation that can compete with China and co.....let's do the needful now we still have time....

All these is not about reviving our rich culture alone. It is more about the Renaissance of Paganism. Traditional religion which is nothing more than worship of demons, is now coming under disguise of reviving culture to bring Africa back to the dark unprofitable days of idol worship. And many who have no roots are falling for this ploy. Those who belong to idols would be taken but hear this - the true God , who has nothing in common with demons, has reserved no future to devil worship.

These people can lie!
About 3 years ago, scientists from Israel came to take samples randomly from a handfhandful Igbo people; and after analysis, they found no genetic link between Igbo and Israel.
Why are these people bent on forging ancestry with Israel? Do I call it inferiority complex? Igbo is the only tribe in Nigeria, And of course , among the blacks who is not proud of her ancestry! Today IPOB, tomorrow Biafra; next day iPad. Wetin dey do una?
To make it real they have to color it with Ooni's face. Rubbish (as in, Lubbish).

You should hug the nearest transformer to you for sense to redeem you from the curse.
The Igbos and Yorubas are very closely related and that is why the Ooni is going to the Eri festival. Ask knowledgeable people around you to stop embarrassing yourself further in public.

He may not have self-identified as Igbo then and his descendants don't self-identify as Igbos.
That is what matters.
You may be closely related but not self-identify as being the same.

He migrate from Igbo to Benin when he got to ile ife, the people he met in ile ife thought they are the only human being living on earth so they said Oduduwa was descending from heaven. To answer your question, we need to know where Igbo migrate from. Igbo do claimed they are from Israel but there are some story that said they came from one country in east African.
