President of the Redeemed Israel Community of Nazarene
Association (RICONA) of Nigeria, Bishop Ignatius Orizu,
has insisted that the Igbos are Jews.

According to him, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sampling
conducted by the Jewish Voice Ministries International
last year in search of the lost tribes of Israel, which
allegedly proved that Igbo were not Israelites, must be
repeated.

Orizu made the call when the association hosted the
founder of ShuvuTV, Rabbi Itzhak Shapira, in Nnewi,
Anambra State, during his first visit to Nigeria.

The cleric argued that after a careful study of the whole
exercise, the association came to the conclusion that the
sampled population was statistically small and did not
represent the true population of the Igbo.

“The idea, I guess, was to randomly sample the Igbo
population, for the discovery of Jewish root. The Igbo
population is not less than 50 million, but, unfortunately, a
population of 120 people, which is not even up to one
percent of the target Igbo population was sampled.

“I, humbly, suggest that an improved sampling process be
adopted. The whole Igbo states should be randomly
sampled to involve about five million Igbo, which is about
10 percent of the Igbo population.

With this, the whole
population will be affected and any result obtained from
the process would be accepted by the Igbo populace,”
Bishop Orizu insisted.
