"We want a Jewish state" - What Nnamdi Kanu said about Igbos in Isreal National TV

Biafra Indigenous People's Leader Nnamdi Kanu was featured yesterday at Israel National TV, where he talked about his arrest, incarceration and problems with the federal government.

The IPOB leader, introduced as Biafra's Nnamdi kanu, was asked how Biafranians perceive themselves as Jewish people looking at their roots.

Nnamdi Kanu responded by saying that Biafrans (Igbos) is scattering around 70 million people around the world and those who identify with their Jewish heritage are close to 50 million.

The IPOB leader said that a significant number of Biafrans practice Judaism on their prayers and in other areas.

Nnamdi Kanu also said that when Christianity came, the Jewish heritage was suppressed and they had to be ashamed of their "roots".

Fortunately, he said that some of the Biafranans have kept Jewish culture to this day when he saw Umuleri village in the Anambra state as an example where Jewish tradition is practiced.

The IPOB leader also said that all Igbos are Jewish, but the problem is the influx of Christianity into Nigeria by colonialism, which dampened Jewish tradition and shifted focus from the Old Testament to the New Testament. He said the Igbos are the Jews of Africa.

Nnamdi Kanu said the Biafranans want to return to what they were before the arrival of the British, because the way Nigeria was put together is the cause of the problem.

He also said that IPOB wants an independent Jewish state of Biafra that is independent of anything that has anything to do with Nigeria. He said they wanted a Jewish state to return to this way of life to worship the one true God in a Jewish way.

The IPOB leader said that Biafranians will not pour into Israel if they are emancipated, but return to Biafra and stay there.

He also talked about his arrest and was jailed for 19 months for calling for independence.
