My Letter of Advice to Dr. Nelly Ofoegbu - Onyeji Nnaji
On the 31st day of December 2021, I was resolved to, rather than criticise our beloved sister, Dr. Nelly Ofoegbu, drop her a message. I would love to do same to all the executives of IPOB; for what is happening now is not funny. It beats my imagination to see that, in just a few months, God has to show Onye Ndu that he had assembled premature leaders instead of men who should hold the mantle for him till his return. A situation where everybody becomes a child and no one is prepaepr to be the man is very pathetic and heartbreaking. What has come over our leaders?
Here's my letter to our sister, Nelly.
Dear Dr. Nelly,
Scholarship demands that you acknowledge the source of your quotes, but you did not do so in about three works you have copied from my works. What you have done is called plegiarism and it is punishable under the copyright law.
I have received letters from Amazon, Senegal, and some ididividuals seeking my permission to use or quote from my works. These requests have been granted officially by me.
Personally, I do not have any problem should anyone use my sourced information. I am concerned particularly about the references. If you type my name, "Onyeji Nnaji" on Google, you will see references across websites, even on Wikipedia. That is scholarship, not plegiarism.
If reading chapter one of my book, 'Reality as Myths', could get you insightful, what will you do when you read my first book which is more ancient and mystically decoded.
Again, please stop confusing people with some of these things you say. I have commented on your post the previous time clarifying that Idu was the name of a man; not the name of a people. Read about him @ Okigwe civilization.
The person you called Adama is not correct. The term Obatala was used by Yoruba to refer to Nri who was the elder brother of Oduduwa. Meanwhile, the Obatala term bothers on the circumstance that led to the departure of both Idu and Oduduwa. See details in 'The Lost City of the Sun'. I can't say all here.

Finally Dr. Nelly, I like your curiousity and zest for history; but I am afraid it will leave you with damaged reputation following the way you are changing every credible report and findings. If it is a mistake, then I will advise that you begin now to shift from fake ones.
That was how Onye Ndu, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had said that we came from Israel untill when I tagged him on my work on Igbo Origin. Two things happened after that period, June, 2019.
1) He openly remarked in one of his broadcasts that, though some people oppose the Israeli origin of the Igbo, it is still expedient that we use it to attract a lasting and assisting relationship with Israel. At least, it became clear through him that we are the first people.
2) He stopped referring to Edo/Benin as Igodomigodo or Ikodomigodo. He began to call them the kingdom of Idu.
Please, help us to put our heads at one corner. There is no kingdom called Iduu. By God grace. I have written and defended in conferences the origin and history of Nkalaha, Eha-Amufu, Ngbo, Nsukka, Okigwe, Nri, Igbo, Efik, Benin, Yoruba, Jukun, Ikwerre, The Akan, Zulu, The Dogon, Ijagam, Zimbabue, Egypt, Nubia, Ethiopia, Origin Biafra, Origin of the Name America, Arochukwu, Etc. To document Ijaw history, Ajuede history team had to spend three weeks in the waterfront of the Ijaw land.
This suffering is not what someone will sit on and destroy. I bleed inside of me seeing some of the things you claim. Please sister, do not go further. Instead, join me to correct our history that has been bastardized by those looking towards Israel or Egypt. Umudiala founded Ethiopia and Egypt, while Nsukka civilized Egypt. We cannot be said to have migrated from the people we founded. We are the world Genesis, even before Adam was created in the fifth generation of the god-men (5000yrs from the days of Eri).
Till the need to write you again arises, I remain your brother and friend; a Biafran without comprise.
