African American Man To Return To Umuahia, Nigeria As He Rocks Igbo Attire
An African American man from Abia state has said that he’s visiting Nigeria next year 2018 after being based in the United States all his life. David Love who is a US citizen, said his ancestors were captured/shipped to America for slavery and worked on a plantation so that he might return to his homeland one day as his relatives have provided him with traditional attire for him to dress like an Igbo man in the US.
Below is what he shared on Facebook;
I am African American but my ancestor was captured and shipped to North America for enslavement. It was here that my ancestor survived on a slave plantation in Virginia so that I might one day return to my homeland. I am descended from the Igbos of Umuahia and my clan is within Umuopara.
My DNA has been connected my distant cousin Obie Uwadineke who is from Umunwanwa. Mazi Ikem C. Eronini has provided me with the clothing so that I can dress as an Igbo man. I am returning 2018 to visit.
