Ife, Osun - Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, has claimed that the Jews, who are the major tribe that occupied Israel in the Asia continent and found in some parts of Europe, came out of the Igbo tribe of Nigeria.

PAY ATTENTION: Share your outstanding story with our editors! Please reach us through info@corp.legit.ng! The Ooni said: "There is this mistake that the world usually makes; they make this mistake that the Igbos came from the Jews. No, it is the other way round.

"Igbo’s as we are known today in Nigeria didn’t start here, most west Africans today migrated downwards from the North Africa after the Invasion of Arabs who now occupy the whole of North Africa, they even went as far as destroying some of the status that could give them away. "This is reason I get annoyed when I see some Igbo’s trying to fans Israel to see them as Jews, black race gave birth to every other race in this world today, if you go to South Africa today, you will see a tribe that looks like Chinese Africans. You can’t say they came from China, instead it’s possible China came from them."
