What new DNA test result reveals about Igbos, Jews | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) result has confirmed that Igbos are not Jews.

The result says there is no possible ancestral link between Igbo and the Jews.

The international President of Jewish Voice Ministries, Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, announced that the result of saliva samples taken in Nnewi had shown that the Igbos were not Jews.

Members of the group had gathered at Uruagu-Nnewi to collect what would be confirmation of DNA test result of Ndigbo’s claims that they are descent of Israel.

Rabbi Bernis who read the report from a laboratory based in Houston, Texas, the United States of America (USA) said that, “the result of the samples taken from Nigeria randomly on some people in Igboland bear no semblance with the ones in the data base of the laboratory.”

The Israeli in company of three of his compatriots said that none of the 124 specimen taken from Nigeria matched the samples in the Houston labora­tory which has 17 years’ experi­ence in DNA business.

He, however, said that the, “result does not rule out the claim of Igbo to Israeli descent,” adding that more research would still be made to authenticate these claims.

The President of RICON, Bishop Ignatius Orizu (JP) while commenting on the DNA result said that, “the result would not deter the organisation from continuing to research into the claimed descent of the Igbo from Israel.”

  1. Ha! Buhari and APC mustu have tempered with the results.lol.....how can it even be possible?

  2. Igbos are Jews my black ass! You are just Igbos from South East Nigeria. Why can't u be proud of your African heritage and identity? Why do u need a validation from Israel affiliation to be proud of yourselves? You are a great Ethnic group with lots of brains and achievements on record. You do not need any foreign affiliation to be complete. You are completely made great by God already. Forget this Jewish fantasy please.

    1. Bless you man. That is the truth. Igbos are a unique tribe who have forged ahead in life not withstanding the odds stacked against them. They do not need any tribal affiliates to justify their greatness.
