An Excerpt from new book: Eden in Sumer on the Niger, by Catherine Acholonu, with contributions from Sidney Davis


Sumer was the Oldest civilization in the world before Egypt. Its first city was called Kish. Kish was established and ruled by Nimrud, the grandson of Ham by ca. 3,800 B.C. The next Sumerian city was Agade, also called Akkad. Agade was established by a king known as Shar-ru-kin/Sharr-ru-gin/Shar-gana, whom Western historians called Sargon. Some researchers of Sumerian history claim that Shar means ‘King’ and Ru means Eri, while Gin/Gan/Gana are Sumerian names for the Garden of Eden. Our own research, published in various volumes titled (1) The Gram Code of African Adam, (2) They Lived Before Adam, (3) The Lost Testament and (4) Eden in Sumer on the Niger, has provided consistent and conclusive evidence that ancient Sumer was an ancient Nigerian Kwa civilization, with some its cities located in the Jos plateau, the Niger Delta, Yoruba land, Benin and Igbo land. Most of the ancient cities of Nigeria such as Borno, Kano, Oyo, Benin, Igbo Ukwu, Calabar were surviving cities of Sumer. Sumer was a civilization that grew out of the Edenic beginnings of the Mother-pot of human civilization; from the same environment that put forth the ‘Out of Africa’, Migrations that have consistently populated the world and given to fledgling mankind culture, language, the rubrics of a writing system developed originally on stone and in caves, basic technology, religion and astronomy. For hundreds of thousands of years Africa remained the only inhabited continent. It was in Africa that the evolutionary journey of the Apes saw to the emergence of the Ape-man; from Ape-man to Cave-man and from Cave-man to Modern Man over a period of no fewer than 2 million years. The story of Evolution is the story of the African continent, and it is a story that is too awe-inspiring to be told. But it has to be told, and told by Africans themselves.

The Apes Who Inhabited Primeval Eden Before Adam:

Stone rubbings conducted on stone inscriptions on the monoliths of Ikom, located in Cross River, Nigeria in June 2012 by Sidney Louis Davis, a US ex-Marine, Judaic Scholar and Fellow of the Catherine Acholonu Research Center, Abuja, have surprisingly revealed that the anthropomorphic features on the carved stones are those, not of humans, but of Apes and Ape-men! These rubbings leave no doubt that these were the very Apes of Darwin’s Evolution – the primeval ancestors of humankind! With these revelations, it can now be said that Nigeria is the only country in the world with surviving ‘photographs on stone’ of mankind’s most remote animal ancestors – the Apes! The precision with which the images were rendered amid various equally precise astronomical and geometric symbols, leave no doubt that intelligent and highly evolved beings with a relatively well developed technology, were responsible for the carvings. Yet these stones that have been ascribed to the Pre-historic past of ancient Nigeria, have been mostly found in rural villages and virgin forests of Cross River State. Their makers remain unknown, belonging to the realm of folklore.

Millions of years of sleeping evolution on the African continent was at last broken by the story of Adam and Eve, and of a Garden, planted by Beings whom Sumerian records (and African folklore) claim were not of earth. Their wars among themselves gave rise to Tsunami-type disasters that eclipsed the mother continent and wiped out its human population, affecting the eco-systemic balance of the earth and Africa in particular, giving rise to waves of migrations to other continents. These were the beginnings of the civilizations that the world would come to know as Sumer. Sumer, was the dying throes of a world (a continent) that had come full-cycle. Sumer was in actuality, not the beginning of a civilization, but rather the beginning of the end of civilization!

Fleeing Sumerians were the later founders of Babylon, Mesopotamia, Persia and Assyria. To date their original homeland has remained a mystery to Assyriologists, but because the writings of Babylonians consistently spoke of a homeland called Sumer, Western Historians knew that an earlier civilization, of which no trace has been found, had given rise to Babylon of the Middle East. Excavations in the Middle East have never yielded a date beyond 2,100 B.C., yet their texts gave king-lists that begun close to 4,000 B.C., giving rise to the question of the location of the mother pot that birthed the civilizations of the Middle East. It is also now known that not only did Sumer birth the Egyptian civilization, it was also the mother of the Indian Mohenjo Daro and Harappan civilizations of the Indus Valley, with which it shares the proto-Cuneiform writing system.

Many cities of Sumer were eclipsed by natural and man-made disasters so devastating that the nation literally disappeared from the face of the earth. Its cities of mud bricks and reed roofs were abandoned and were buried by thousands of years of piled up mud. Naturally, its legacies to the world are everywhere visible, though being denied: Egypt, India, Babylon, Persia, Assyria, Americas, China, Hatti-land, (and in later ages) Greece, Troy, Rome, all of Europe, etc.

Laouali Yahaya, a Muslim Scholar from Niger Republic has been conducting research that are demonstrating linguistic connections between Hausa language and culture and those of ancient Egyptians, while a host of Yoruba scholars have successfully demonstrated Yoruba cultural, religious and linguistic links with ancient Egypt. The question that begs an answer is: who came from whom? Egyptian records say that by 3100 B.C. a “Nubian” from Sub-Saharan Africa went north and conquered Egypt and annexed them to his own kingdom in the South. That man was called Menes. Our 21 year-long research on this phenomenon has thrown up four major full-length book-publications and more than ample evidence to the effect that Menes was definitely a Nigerian, for ancient Nigeria was the mainstay of Sumer -the location of its two oldest cities and at least two of its four regions.[1] Mounding evidence suggests that Menes might in fact have hailed from the ancient Nigerian throne-house of Iduu Eri in Igbo land – the single ancestral base of the Kwa family of West African tribes.[2]

Iduu-Eri was the Original Putative Ancestor of the Kwa Peoples of Nigeria

The Pre-historic African cities of Sumer were the world’s oldest cities and mankind’s oldest civilization. E.O Erim in “Traditions of Origins of the Idoma-Yala People” (Alagoa, 1990) tells us that the people of Yoruba, Benin, Igbo, Idoma, Yala, Igala, Edo and many other smaller tribes came from one common origin, one common ancestor. The Benin/Edo, Idoma and Eri people of Igbo land claim that that common ancestor was called Iduu. Oral traditions of Nigeria indicate that the common ancestor called Iduu had his seat of power at the junction of two rivers located East of Benin. The only junction of two rivers located East of Benin is the Omambala-Niger confluence, which incidentally is located in the Iduu Eri kingdom in Aguleri town, Anambra State, Igbo land, Nigeria.

Iduu Eri had five sons which include Agulu Eri, Atta Eri, Edo Eri and others. Atta Eri is the ancestor and father of the Igallas and the founder of the still-surviving ancient lineage of Atta Kings of the Igalla nation. Eri’s other son Edo is the ancestor of the Edo tribe, which includes Bini (Benin) tribe of Nigeria. Edo has given rise to many other smaller tribes such as the Idoma and the Yala. We are told that every designated Oba of Benin still comes to Aguleri to the spot where Edo first lived to spent seven nights of silence and meditation before he can be crowned the substantive Oba of Benin. From the name of Agulu, the first son of Eri, the town of Aguleri took its name as the seat of Iduu Eri kingdom by primogeniture, occupying to this very day the original Throne-Seat of Iduu-Eri – the common putative ancestor of all Kwa peoples of West Africa (including Ashanti and Akan and Ga of Ghana). Many clans of Igbo land take their origin from Eri sons and grandsons who did not migrate across the Niger. But the autochthonous natives whom Eri met in Igbo land when he arrived, the descendants of the cave men, still have their own clans in Igbo land, for Iduu-Eri was a migrant who came into Igbo land in the immediate Post-Deluge period. Eri traditions of Igbo land and Iddu traditions of Edo land support Yoruba Ifa traditions that this ancestor (whom Ifa calls Obatala Oba-Igbo: ‘Lord Igbo’) arrived with a team of divine beings while the earth was still inundated with the Deluge waters; that he undertook a major land-reclamation project and piled up a Mound, upon which he built the first post deluge city. Circumstantial evidence from these oral traditions, Sumerian records, Egyptian records, Hebrew Book of Jubilees, and Thoth’s Emerald Tablets indicate that Iduu (whose name means ‘Black’ in Nigerian languages) was the same person whom the Egyptians called Khem (the founder of Khemetic Egypt) and the Sumerians Khamma-esh, and the Hebrews Kham/Ham.

Similarities Between Ancient Nigerians and Sumerians

Sumerian written records, that have survived in Babylon and latter-day Mesopotamia, as delineated by Wallis Budge[3] show that they and Nigerians had many similarities of customs, cultures and traditions. Both Nigerians and Sumerians lived in mud and thatched or reed huts, they worshipped gods in small shrines and made sacrifices of livestock and food to their gods. They practiced Animism – worshipping deities of the waters, earth, wind and vegetation. Families ate meals from a common plate and, like Nigerians and other Africans they scooped food with their bare hands. Sumerians and Nigerians were metal workers and farmers. Both peoples practiced arranged marriages. Palm-wine was tapped from the palm trees and drunk in Sumer as it is still done in Nigeria. Both peoples made soap with a mixture of wood-ash and oil (Yoruba Dudu Osun/Igbo Ncha Ngu). Both Sumerians and ancient Nigerian chiefs dressed customarily in wrappers slung across the left shoulder with the right shoulder bare. Chiefs of both people wore carnelian beads on the neck and arms. Like Yoruba priests, Sumerian priests wore white wrappers. Sumerian drums were made and beaten in the style of Yoruba talking drums, and some were slung on the shoulders while being beaten with two hands. Sumerian Proto-Cuneiform letters are made up mostly of popular Nigerian and Bantu symbols, as we have demonstrated in our forthcoming book, Eden in Sumer on the Niger. It is obvious from these and many more similarities that Sumerians were Nigerians/West Africans.

The Destruction of Sumer by 2,023 B.C. Created Worldwide Migrations from Ancient Nigeria/West Africa

Sumerian kings of the lineage of the ancient city of Agade, founded by Sargon mostly bore titles originated from Iduu-Eri kings of ancient Igbo land. Their most popular titles were Eri, Atta, Idu, Dudu, Duru, Qa/Kwa, Eshi, Kashi/Esh (Igbo titles of the autochthons, pronounced Akhunshi/Eshi meaning ‘dwarf/autochtonous’). Their oldest rulers took the title Urashi, meaning ‘Sea Emperor’. Urashi is a popular river in mainland Igbo land. The European god of wine Bacchus was of Sumerian origin. His original Igbo name, Gba-nkwu means ‘Let Your Wine Flow’! One of the kings of Sargon’s lineage bore the title Atta, after the second son of Eri and the founder of today’s Igalla kingdom and its ruling family. Our new research works are recreating the ancient Sumerian and Egyptian dynasties and rediscovering their ancient Nigerian roots.

Sumer had many cataclysms, but its final destruction took place by 2023 B.C. The survivors of the disaster migrated to many parts of the world and founded new cities and kingdoms and thus brought civilization to the entire world.[4] They were the world’s first Diaspora. Sitchin reveals that the Sumerian refugees were called Munabtitu ‘Fugitives from a Destruction’, derived from Igbo Umunna-obi-ntitu – ‘Clans from Destroyed Homesteads’. A new Babylon, Persia, Assyria and Mesopotamia sprang up in the Middle East. India was occupied by the Bharat and Kuru family of Igbos and Fulanis, while the rest of the fleeing refugees from ancient Nigeria went South and became the Bantu nations of Sub-Saharan Africa. Middle East scholar Ishaq D. Al-Sulaimani has demonstrated in his work, “Greater Igbo Nation” that many Sub-Saharan African languages have their origin in Nigeria and precisely in Igbo language, and linguists have posited that the Bantus, who today occupy two-thirds of the African continent were migrants from South-Eastern Region (Igbo region) of Nigeria and the Benue/Cross River region. The fact that the first major Bantu migrations took place around the same date as the Fall of Sumer (ca. 2,000 B.C), shows that the Bantu migrants were Sumerians from ancient Nigeria and were connected to those Sumerians who emigrated to Babylon, India and China. Indeed the Bantu migrants were distinguished by their metal technology, as all the records have shown. Metal working was a hallmark of Sumerian civilization, a gift she gave to Asia and Europe. Archaeologists of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka have proved the existence of industrial iron furnaces in ancient Nigeria (Lejja, Opi, Nsukka) long before 2,000 B.C., lending further proof to a Nigerian base for Prehistoric Sumer.[5]

Nigerian Sumerians Seeded the World with their Old Technologies and Civilization

Nigerian Sumerians gave the world writing, bronze-technology, metal-working, mathematics, religion, kingship, astronomy, weaving, pottery, mining and a host of other forms of knowledge. The descendants of Sumerians from India, Greece, Troy and Turkey (Hittites) migrated to Europe and became the Aryan (Eri-an) master Race and Aristocrats. The word Ary/Ari is derived from Eri-Iduu, the founder of Post-Deluge Sumer. The Nigerian Kwa linguistic group was clearly the mainstay of Sumerian aristocracy. Sumerian kings from the earliest of them coveted the Nigerian Kwa (Qa) which unites all descendant tribes of Eri-Iduu. Kwa was spelt Qa/Kha/Ka in translations, and occurs in Sumerian/Aryan and Middle Eastern titles like Kassi/Khadi/Ghadi/Gad. These titles borne by Babylonians and Persians continued to be adopted by the Aryans as the generic titles of “the ruling caste or aristocracy” of the Middle East, Asia and Europe, surviving today in the Arabic title ‘Grand Khaddi’.[6] L.A. Waddell in Makers of Civilization in Race and History says that the generic title Khad(i) borne by Canaanite Phoenicians was derived from Khadmon. Khad/Ghad/Gad is related to Akkad (Agade) – one of the oldest and greatest cities of Sumer. As demonstrated by Martin Bernal in Black Athena, Khadmon was the Canaanite founder of the Cretan civilization and an ancestor of the Phoenicians. He gave writing to Greece. In previous works, we demonstrated that it was his sister Europa (Igbo Iruopa: her name means ‘Moon Face/Round Face’ in Canaanite and in Igbo) who founded and gave her name to the continent of Europe.

Gad: The Mystical Name of the First Son of God – The Origin of the City-Name Agade

Ghad/Gad is derived from the third member of the Kabbalistic First Triad – Hokhmah, which is Adam-Khadmon (the First Adam – the ‘First Son of God’). We can see here that the tit le of Gad or Khad which happens to be a title still used today by Igbo Eri lands as a title of one of their ancestors, is also the title of the First Son of God (Khadmon) in the Hebrew Kabbala.

All of this continue to support our thesis that the Hebrews were sons of Eri land and that their ancestry is Canaanite, for the Semitic language is a child of the Canaanite language. Gad is actually the root of the word A-gad-e. The word also bears within it a reference to God as vegetation, seed, food; in Igbo Seed-Yam, for Aga and Ad (in Aga-de) mean in Igbo ‘Yam (Ji Aga) Seedling (Ad)’. Gad happens to be also the name of one of the sons of Jacob in the Hebrew Bible – a man who named one of his sons Eri as a way of laying claim to his Eri ancestry. We think all these add up as proof that the Hebrews, whose original ancestor Abraham, was born almost a thousand six hundred years after Sargon the founder of Agade, were people of Eri land.[7]

When Eri people call their ancient Throne-House in Aguleri Obu Gad, they mean it is the First Throne-House of the ancient Sumerian city of Agade (A-Gad-e), but also the Throne-House of the First Son of God. Needless to say, it was Eri, the immediate Post-Deluge founder of Aguleri (before 11,000-10,000 B.C.) who brought the ‘Gad’ revelation to Igbo land in the earliest days of Sumer. Circumstantial pieces of evidence that have been piling up around the personality of Eri make it at last clear that his God was El (Igbo Ele). He was the incarnation or living representation of his God. He was indeed a person without parentage. No one can say where he came from, only that he surfaced from Omambala/Niger confluence waters and built a city and sired a lineage of priest-kings. This makes him one with Biblical Melchizedek – the ubiquitous Teacher of Abraham, whom according to the Muslim Koran, Moses also sought out in his own time at the Waters of Life (Omambala) in the Junction of Two Rivers (known as Agbanabo in Aguleri).[8]

Eri/Melchidedek and El

Every successive Eze Eri (Eri King) since the days of the first ancestor has been a living incarnation of first ancestor, Eri. So was it in Abraham’s time (ca. 2,100 B.C.) and so it was in Moses’ time (ca. 1,500 B.C.). El was Ele in Igbo land and in Sumer, Er in Egypt and El in Hebrew. Because the Egyptians could not pronounce the letter l; they used r in place of l; they called this most ancient God Er. Many Anambra people have the same dialectal problem that the Egyptians have, they pronounce the letter l as r, and we have pointed this out among the many linguistic similarities between the Egyptians and the Igbo people of Anambra State where Aguleri is located. Eri appears to be a dialectal variant of Er/El and would tend to confirm that Eri was an incarnation of the God Ele/El in the same way that Melchizedek was a living embodiment of this same God of “the Heights (the Mound)” called El Elyon in the Hebrew Bible. Igbo Ili Enu means ‘To Climb the Heights’.

Pharaoh, Bharat and Opara: Ancient Titles of One Family of Sun-Kings of Egypt, India and Igbo Land

Sumerians used the phonemes v and b interchangeably just as Igbo Eri people (and Semites) still do. An example is the Eri dialectal expression vu ivu, whose Igbo dialectal variant is bu ibu – ‘carrying a load’. This indicates a linguistic relationship between Eri clans and Sumerians, which does not exist between the Sumerians and the Igbo autochthonous dialects within the same geographical environment. Sumerian hieroglyph for the sounds Par/Bar (‘Son’) have their equivalent sound and meaning in Igbo Opara, and their common hieroglyphs are an X and a Cross. The Sumerian/Igbo words Bar/Par (‘First Son/Great House’) are the origin of Egyptian Pharaoh and Indian Barath – two words that designate the oldest ruling families/titles of ancient Egypt and Vedic India.

L.A. Waddell in Makers of Civilization in Race and History indicates in his comparative list of Sumerian Egyptian and European inscriptions[9] that the X symbol for Bar/Par is also the symbol for Kur/Guur/Guru. The Kurus and Baraths were the rival sons of the Mahabharat war of Vedic India. Sumerian Kuru means ‘Mountain-land’. Countless racial, cultural and behavioral similarities between the Indians and Fulanis of Nigeria, added to the existence of a mountain-town called Kuru in the heart of the Nok civilization of Jos, Plateau state, make it evident that Plateau State was the home of the Kurus of the Mahabharat wars. The fact that the three families (Bharat/Kurus and Eris) shared the same hieroglyphic symbol for ‘Son/Heir of the Great House’, means they are two branches of the same original Ruling House of Eri. Three inter-changeable Sumerian symbols identify Bar/Par/Kur. They are the X, the equal-armed Cross and the Swastika. These three solar symbols, as demonstrated in Catherine Acholonu’s They Lived Before Adam and The Lost Testament are sacred symbols of Igbo ozo initiates and of the Eze Eri/Eze Nri. The Swastika was among the symbols excavated in Igbo Ukwu by British archaeologist Thurstan Shaw and wrongly dated 9th Century AD.

The Ichi, the Cross and the Swastika – Symbols of Sons of the Sun

The X is the Igbo symbol for ‘deity’ and was found on all shrine objects, door-posts and household utensils. It is also the Ichi Symbol which was engraved with a knife onto the facial skin of the Eze Eri/Nri as the mark of First Son-ship of the Eri Solar Lineage and of their Kingship of the World. The meaning of these pieces of evidence is that Igbo land is the origin (the I-Ching) of these prehistoric symbols of Sumer, Egypt, India, and that Igbo land is the seat of the First Sons of that One Solar Clan who are the Shepherd Kings of the Human Race!

It is not by coincidence that Jesus the Christ also bore the Cross as the symbol of the Crucified Son of God (Adam Kwadmon/Gad) and Son of Man (Vedic Isa, Igbo Eshi). The undeniable corollary to all this is that Aguleri kings are the kings of the world and this indeed is embedded in the actual meaning of their ages-old kingship title EZEORA; its Igbo literal meaning being ‘Sun-King and King of the World’! The Igbo linguistic and semiotic roots of the kingship titles Pharaoh, Barath and Kuru of Egypt and India also lead to the inevitable conclusion that all these ancient dynasties of solar kings, had one common root in Igbo Eri land. It is now clear why the Sumerian pictograph for Pharaoh (‘Great House’) is the exact replica of the ancient Obu Uga/Obu Gad/Obu Agade located at Aguleri in Igbo land! Indeed Obu Gad of Igbo land is Obu Agade of Sumer.

Semites and European Colonizers of Africa Received Religion and Civilization from Ancient Nigerian Sumerians

About the Sumerian origins of Semitic religion and European polity, Waddell wrote, We find at that early period of the early Aryans and Sumerians from whom we have inherited civilization, already a vigorous law-abiding industrial and agricultural people living in cities under established governments, with free institutions, practicing scientific arts and crafts, great sea traders familiar with writing, literature, poetry and history and possessed of a lofty religion and on the monotheistic lines of the present day. We find a Sumerian king some generations before Menes, recording that he is ‘the champion of the weak against the strong; in place of servitude he established liberty throughout his kingdom… he delivered the children from want, theft, murder and other ills… to the widow and the orphan the strong man could do no harm’. And he issues or reissues a great number of laws including many for protecting the people against extortions by officials and priests, which are precisely similar in form to those found in the later law-codes of the Hittites and on the famous stone-graven code of the sun-worshipping Khammu-Rabi (2003-1961 B.C.)…whose law-codes are now generally recognized as the immediate source of Moses Laws in the Ten Commandments… [10]

The name Khammu-Rabi can be seen to be Hamito-Semitic. Khammu (from Sumerian Khamma-esh, a name for Agade), is derived from Kham or Ham, which is again derived from Ho-khm-ah – the Son of God and the third member of the First Triad in the Cabbala. It is not a coincidence that the Sumerian name for ‘Lotus’ is Kham. Since the Lotus plant, according to Egyptian Pyramid Texts,[11] was the first plant that grew from the Primeval Lake that formed in the Land of First Creation, it stands to reason that the Lotus is the emblem of God as Vegetation or Seed; in other words, it is again a manifestation the First Creation/the First Son of God – Ho-khm-ah/Khad-mon. Sumerian identification of the Lotus with Kham confirms that Kham/Ham is the ‘First Son of God’ – the Chosen One of God. But which God? Was this why Abraham’s God insisted that he change his Abram name to Abra-HAM, so as to thereby inherit the First Son-ship of Ham – the Black One – The IDUU? We know of course that Ham and Abraham had totally different gods, and that Abraham’s God was Noah’s God – the same God who had Ham and his Canaan seed cursed to servitude of his brothers. Was this a coup-de grace to give Abraham the inheritance of two Gods El/Ele’s and Yahweh’s? As we illustrated in They Lived Before Adam, The Nag Hammadi Scriptures reveal that Abraham’s God Yahweh was the Sumerian god Marduk, first son of Enki, the leader of the Nephilim. The battles between Yahweh and Ba-El in the Hebrew Bible, appear to have actually played out between Marduk and the Igbo cavemen God Ele, and it appears that this battle was also playing out between the worshippers of both Gods the: Khamites and the Abrahamites, even though both are of the same original ancestral house of Eri Iduu.

Hebrew Rabbi is derived from Rabi in Khammu-rabi. The fact that Khammurabi began his rule in Babylon (2003B.C.) 26 years after the destruction of Africa-based Sumer (2023 B.C.), and about 20 years after the death of Abraham means that his legacy easily passed onto the Semites of Abraham’s lineage. By Sitchen’s calculation, Abraham was born in 2123 B.C. and at the age of 100, he bore his first son and witnessed the destruction of Sumer by 2023 B.C.[12] In other words, Khammurabi was the first king of a relocated Sumerian population of Eri/Nigerian settlers in the Middle East. Aryans emerged from the Indian arm of the Sumerian refugees from ancient Nigeria. The term Arya/Aerie/Herie from which is derived German Herr ‘(Lord’), which Waddell says originated in Sumer, is a cognate of Igbo Eri. Robert Bauval in Black Genesis: Pre-historic Origins of Ancient Egypt actually revealed that the Blacks who first populated Egypt by 3,000 -4,000 B.C. were the Napta Playans, who migrated from the direction of Chad in West Africa – a people whose kings bore the title Herri! Chad has a direct border with Nigeria and Lake Chad was previously located in Nigeria until it was seeded to Chad not too long ago.

Conclusion: Aryans were Kwa-Egyptians, Igbos and Fulanis

Clearly the Sumerian sons of Eri have been global colonizers from Egypt to the rest of the world. Aryans were not originally the blue-eyed pale white race they have been supposed to be. Waddell noted from Vedic records that the Aryan racial complexion was “ruddy”. “Ruddy” is the complexion of many Igbos and Fulanis including this author. The facts on the ground only tell us one thing, the Aryans who conquered and ruled Europe and became its earliest Aristocrats and kings were Kwa-Egyptians, Igbos and Fulanis who had occupied the Indus valley from the days of the Fall of Sumer. David Mac Richie in Ancient and Modern Britons and a host of other European and African American researchers[13] have demonstrated that a Black race called ‘Egyptians’ were the first inhabitants of Europe and Britain – the builders and occupiers of the continent’s oldest stone castles, Europe’s first Ari-stocrats, nobles and black knights of mythology. It was the mixed-race descendants of these Africans who returned back to the lands of their remote ancestors and mercilessly exploited it to build new empires in their new-found lands. What has not been known till now is the actual African origin of these first colonists of the world. But today we can assert that they were Nigerians.
