Ndi Igbo, Ndigbo means (The Ancient People) The British called us IBO or (Heebos) I.B.O. means I Before Others (I Came Before Others).
Aha, an Igbo man, established ancient Egypt. To provide evidence in support of my claim here, I will cite Dr. Ben Jochannan, a world renowned Egyptologist, he stated that ALKEBULAN and not Kemet or ON or any other name was the oldest name of ancient Egypt.
ALKEBULAN is an Igbo word and any person from Igbo land can easily recognize this word as Igbo. In modern Igbo, ALKEBULAN would be written as AKAEBULAN OR AKAEBULAM OR AKAEGBUNAM depending on the dialect and the part of Igbo land the speaker comes from.
Ani & Aha, both ancient Egyptian words are still written the same way in Igbo language and are still used in everyday Igbo communication.
Ani is the female Alusi (deity) of the earth, morality, fertility and creativity in Odinani. She is the most important Alusi in the Igbo pantheon. In Odinani, Ani rules over the underworld, and holds the deceased ancestors in her womb. Her name literally translates to ‘Ground’ in the Igbo language, denoting her powers over the earth and her status as the ground itself. Ani is considered the highest Alusi in the Igbo pantheon. Ala’s husband is Amadioha, the sky deity.
As the goddess of morality, Ani is involved in judging human actions and is in charge of Igbo law and customs known as ‘Omenala’.
Taboos and crimes among Igbo communities that are against the standard of Ani are called nsọ Ani. All ground is considered ‘Holy land’ as it is Ani herself. With human fertility, Ani is credited for the productivity of the land. Ani’s messenger and living agent on earth is the python (Igbo: éké), which is especially revered in many Igbo communities. In art, Ani is often represented as a regal figure seated on a throne, surrounded by her family. In the past, such figures took the form of life-size mud sculptures in special festive shrines dedicated to the deity and known as Mbari.
It is said that if a person commits a taboo in a community, that they have also desecrated or insulted Ani as the abomination (called ajo njo or Aru Ala, Alu Ani) was committed on her earth. Ani is also responsible for many aspects of Igbo society, and guardianship of women and children in general. She is often depicted with a small child in her arms and her symbol is the crescent moon. It is believed that the souls of the dead reside in her sacred womb. All in the community have to respect Ani as everybody lives on Ani, the earth. It was sometimes believed that Ani could swallow you up into the underground.
Ani is still worshipped by the Igbo of Nigeria and is annually paid homage to during the Yam festival.
Hint: Papyrus of Ani
How can you believe in the bible when the same stories were written in Papyrus of Ani 4000 years before the bible? Everything in the Christian program is FALSE, STOLEN, CORRUPTED, AND COUNTERFEIT!
The “Book of Going Forth by Day”. This book is more commonly known as the Book of the Dead. It usually contained declarations and spells to help the deceased in their afterlife. The “Book of the Dead” for-scribes Ani from Thebes is the manuscript called the Papyrus of Ani.
The doctrine of Maat is represented in the declarations to Rekhti-merti-f-ent-Maat and the 42 Negative Confessions listed in the Papyrus of Ani.

Written at least 2,000 years before the Ten Commandments of Moses, the 42 Principles of Ma’at are one of Africa’s, and the world’s, oldest sources of moral and spiritual instruction. Ma’at, the Ancient Egyptian divine Principle of Truth, Justice, and Righteousness, is the foundation of natural and social order and unity. Ancient Africans developed a humane system of thought and conduct which has been recorded in volumes of African wisdom literature, such as, these declarations from the Book of Coming Forth By Day (the so-called Book of the Dead), The Teachings of Ptah-Hotep, the writings of Ani, Amenemope, Merikare, and others.
The Christian Bible 10 Commandment was copied from Papyrus of Ani 42 commandment doctrine of Ma’at Chapter 125 of the Book of the Dead, often called the 42 Declarations of Purity or the Negative Confession.
