Very interesting. But new generation pastors and jewish followers grow in their numbers within months and in a couple of years, so, where are the followers of these islamic men in Igboland decades after their conversation to islam?

This is good news. Islam must spread to every corner of Igboland. Igbo Muslims MUST not be marginalised. Any form of wickedness by Igbos against Igbo Muslims would be violently resisted. Igbo muslims are not fools.

Igbos don buy market. grin

You will keep failing till you know when to keep mute and when to write!
Re: Meet The 10 Most Influential Igbo Muslims by AntiChristian: 10:42am On Feb 26
An Igbo once told me Igbos that became Muslims are (treated as) bastards. I just looked and thought "these same Igbo that were mainly idolators some couple of centuries ago...."?

Even Fulani-Muslims are not as discriminatory as the Igbo Christians!
