 Igbo-Jewish relation: groups rule out manipulation 
 
The Redeemed Israel Community of Nazarenes Association, RICON , in conjunction with the Jewish Voice Ministries International, JVMI, the bodies that is conducting the Deoxyribonuleic Acid, DNA, text to know the relationship  between the Igbos and Jewish yesterday assured that the result of the test will not be manipulated and expected in August.

The groups during a briefing in Nnewi, on behalf of RICON Committee on DNA Test, President of RICON, Bishop Ignatius Orizu, who was surrounded by his Secretary Moreh Abraham Ndukwe, DNA Committee Chairman, Elder Ben Ikeyeh and Yahi, RICON Financial Secretary and DNA Committee Secretary win Gozie Aguh, said specimens of males were randomly selected from nine South East and South South states where the Igbos are found.

He  said “RICON, the sole facilitator of the programme and investigation randomly picked people from the states like, Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo, Delta, Gross Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Rivers States, and they willingly submitted their saliva swap samples for the DNA test to the medical team of JVMI.

So far the test has commenced and the Global Director of JVMI Ezra Watnik expressed satisfaction with the peaceful and successful collecting of the saliva swap samples, and described the event as historic for the Igbo community.”

He said the journey to ascertain the speculation and mythological belief that the Igbos have relationship with the Jewish started in 2007 shortly after founding RICON, whose vision was the unification and championing of the cause of Messianic Jews of Nigeria.

Bishop Orizu noted that they came in contact with deceased Igbo Rabbi, Dr Melekh Ukahson,in 2010 through whom we got to know a Canadian Rabbi, Yehudah Ben Shomer through whom we knew JVMI, and in 2014, they sent a two man delegation, Ezra Watnik and Mezmur Zemichael to Nigeria
