Igbos who claim that Jews are Igbos, that Igbos started Jewish, Greek, Roman, English, German, French civilizations and, indeed, all human civilizations are clearly demented (they are suffering from delusion disorder, grandiose type).
They appropriated the accomplishment of other people and in so doing now are the owners of the accomplishments of those illustrious people; they are no longer primitive Igbos running around the jungle, naked, kidnapping and selling their people into slavery and or holding them hostage for ransom money but are now the illustrious progenitors of great human civilizations.
This is how delusion disorder works; the deluded person takes credit for what he did not accomplish to make him feel falsely great.
Of course, Igbos did not start those civilizations for Igbos are not related to those people in language and DNA. Igbos who make such patently false claims are at best talking nonsense and worse demented.
Unfortunately, there is no medication yet for treating delusion disorder; deluded persons generally are rational in most areas of their lives including their professions but have systematized belief in what is not true to be true in one area of their lives, in the area where they take what is not true as true. Thus, a medical doctor could be an excellent doctor yet believes that he is the inventor of the rocket that takes astronauts to the space center ( delusion, grandiose type)that he did not invent or believe that his wife wants to kill him when, in fact, she does not have such desire (delusion, persecutory type).
I wish that there are psychotropic medications to help cure deluded Igbos. There are psychotropic medications for schizophrenics, maniacs and depressed persons but not for deluded persons.
If you like, you can construe delusion disorder as partial psychosis. In full blown psychosis, such as schizophrenia and Bipolar affective disorder, the individual has bizarre delusions and hallucinations (in one or more of the five senses, such as auditory hallucination, hears voices or visual hallucination, sees what is not there).
In delusion disorder the individual does not hallucinate but has bizarre delusions, such as believe that he and his people are superior people and are responsible for all human civilization when in fact they are a primitive people who did not even develop the wheel, or writing or have Igbo wide political structure.
Igbos are probably the most primitive of the various tribes of Nigeria; they are a stateless people whose political development is at the most basic level of human sociopolitical development.
Hausas, Yorubas and Edos attained feudal level of political development (they had kings and political structures for ruling their entire tribes) and can easily transit to bourgeoisie culture whereas Igbos will probably not be able to transit to bourgeoisie culture in this century.
There is no cure for delusion disorder, so we have to merely understand deluded Igbos and live with their infantile taking of ownership of what they did not accomplish, other peoples civilizations.
While making stupid claims of ownership of civilizations that they did not start, in the meantime, they do not do anything to correct their shitty world of today.
In one of his three YouTube tapes, Njemanze claims that Owerri is Jerusalem (that Nnaze is Nazareth!); the man clearly has checked out of our shared reality and is living in the world he invented, his fantasy, a world where his wishes are gratified for him.
There was no such thing as the city of Owerri before the white man came to Alaigbo. Lord Lugard chose to make Owerri (there used to be a slave market there) the administrative headquarters of his Owerri province in 1902.
Lugard invented warrant chiefs for Igbos, one of whom was Osuji-Njemanze of Owerri. But Philip, in his tape, said that his folks have been kings of Owerri for millions of years! That boy is really out to launch, big time.
Contemporary Owerri town is a cesspool of garbage. Alaigbo is the most misgoverned part of Nigeria and, worse, Igbos do not even know how to govern themselves; they are all talk and no action.
Each individual Igbo is motivated by self-centered efforts to get something for his self and pursues what he calls wealth but does not do anything to improve the lives of other Igbos; he fancies his self a capitalist and republican who works for only his self and expects other people to take care of themselves and the result is the dog eat dog world of Igbos.
In Igbo land no one cares for other people and as a result the people steal and kidnap each other for money; if other Igbos do not help you, the typical Igbo justifies stealing from them to help his self.
What will help Igbos is the opposite to their present pathological social ideology; they must become caring for other people; they must embrace serving social interests and work for public good; they must embrace aspects of socialism that provides all children with publicly paid education through university, give them publicly paid health insurance and do other things to reduce Igbo exaggerated egoism.
Igbos who claim ownership of Jewish achievements and other peoples achievements in the present are not politically and economically engaged in trying to improve their Igbo world; they are do-nothing, deluded paranoids making grandiose claims, claims that they do not try to actualize in the real world.
Deluded persons make empty claims about their accomplishments that they did not accomplish in the real world and claims that cannot be actualized in the real world.
An Igbo security guard with no more than secondary school education will look at you, say, a university professor and tell you that he is more important than you and boast about the money he has (even as does not have it).
These people are idle claimer of what they are not; their mouths need to be taped shut!
In conclusion, there is no cure for delusion disorder; this is because it emanates from human beings sense of excruciating sense of existential inferiority and their attempts to compensate with false sense of importance and worth which leads to claiming of false superiority over other human beings.
A healthy person must accept that he is nothing, that his body is food for worms and then search to see if there is more to his life than meets the eyes, such as scientific spirituality but he must not make spurious, empty claims of his importance for he does not have it.

Delusional Disorder Symptoms
By Steve Bressert, Ph.D.
~ 2 min read
Delusional disorder is characterized by the presence of either bizarre or non-bizarre delusions which have persisted for at least one month. Non-bizarre delusions typically are beliefs of something occurring in a person’s life which is not out of the realm of possibility. For example, the person may believe their significant other is cheating on them, that someone close to them is about to die, a friend is really a government agent, etc. All of these situations could be true or possible, but the person suffering from this disorder knows them not to be (e.g., through fact-checking, third-person confirmation, etc.). Delusions are deemed bizarre if they are clearly implausible, not understandable, and not derived from ordinary life experiences (e.g., an individual’s belief that a stranger has removed his or her internal organs and replaced them with someone else’s organs without leaving any wounds or scars). Delusions that express a loss of control over mind or body are generally considered to be bizarre and reflect a lower degree of insight and a stronger conviction to hold such belief compared to when they are non-bizarre. Accordingly, if an individual has bizarre delusions, a clinician will specify “with bizarre content” when documenting the delusional disorder.
People who have this disorder generally don’t experience a marked impairment in their daily functioning in a social, occupational or other important setting. Outward behavior is not noticeably bizarre or objectively characterized as out-of-the-ordinary.
The delusions cannot be better accounted for by another disorder, such as schizophrenia, which is also characterized by delusions (which are bizarre). The delusions also cannot be better accounted for by a mood disorder, if the mood disturbances have been relatively brief. The lifetime prevalence of delusional disorder has been estimated at around 0.2%.
Specific Diagnostic Criteria
- Delusions lasting for at least 1 month’s duration.
- Criterion A for Schizophrenia has never been met. Note: Tactile and olfactory hallucinations may be present in Delusional Disorder if they are related to the delusional theme. Criterion A of Schizophrenia requires two (or more) of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period (or less if successfully treated):
- disorganized speech (e.g., frequent derailment or incoherence)
- grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior
- negative symptoms, i.e., affective flattening, logia, or abolition
Note: Criteria A of Schizophrenia requires only one symptom if delusions are bizarre or hallucinations consist of a voice keeping up a running commentary on the person’s behavior or thoughts, or two or more voices conversing with each other.
- Apart from the impact of the delusion(s) or its ramifications, functioning is not markedly impaired and behavior is not obviously odd or bizarre.
- If mood episodes have occurred concurrently with delusions, their total duration has been brief relative to the duration of the delusional periods.
- The disturbance is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition.
Specify type (the following types are assigned based on the predominant delusional theme):
- Erotomanic Type: delusions that another person, usually of higher status, is in love with the individual
- Grandiose Type: delusions of inflated worth, power, knowledge, identity, or special relationship to a deity or famous person
- Jealous Type: delusions that the individual’s sexual partner is unfaithful
- Persecutory Type: delusions that the person (or someone to whom the person is close) is being malevolently treated in some way
- Somatic Type: delusions that the person has some physical defect or general medical condition
- Mixed Type: delusions characteristic of more than one of the above types but no one theme predominates
- Unspecified Type
