Yesterday, the Jewish community stormed the residence of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) at Isiama Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia state. The group from Yahweh Yahshua Synagogue arrived the IPOB leader’s house to hold the ongoing Shabbat celebration as they reportedly prayed for Nnamdi Kanu and praised him.
It can be recalled that Nnamdi Kanu has several times stated that he and the Igbo people are descendants of the Jews.
The IPOB leader whose whereabouts is unknown, had always celebrated and identified with the Jewish community in Nigeria and Africa at large.
According to the Jewish religious law, Shabbat is observed from a few minutes before sunset on Friday evening until the appearance of three stars in the sky on Saturday night. Shabbat is ushered in by lighting candles and reciting a blessing
