The staff of Oranmiyan in Ile-Ife today still has the words "Oranmiyan" engraved on it in Jewish letters, and it was erected before the coming of the Europeans to that side of the world.
Have you ever wondered why the Yorubas name their children on the eighth day of the birth of the child? I have.
Could it be, as suggested to my surprise by an American student in my Yoruba class on Wednesday, that we are following the tradition of the old Hebrews who always circumcised their children on the eight day after birth, as ordained by their God? I don't know, but I won't bet against it. There is so much that I don't know, that I wish I knew. There is so much more we need to know about ourselves.
First of all, it is not a Hebrew symbol. It appears to be either a Greek symbol which equates to the letters 'Ps' or Southern_Arabia Symbol which equates to the letter 'T'. It might also equates to the letter 'S' with tilde symbol on top of the (S) via Nabataeans Script. And finally it equates to the letters or the word 'RE', via Egyptians Hieroglyphs, and the word 'High Mourn', meaning mourning the death of a deity or king in Niger-Congo Glyphs. The words Hebrew and Semitic are both misnomers which has caused and still causing a lot of confusion.
The word Hebrew, came from other words like Habiru, Habibu and Haribu, these are very common names in ancient Egypt and Canaan. They are not unique to any particular tribe just names. The so called ancient Hebrews did not labeled themselves as Jews. That came from the word Grew, Jnew and Gre, words synonymous in ancient Greece. So, some of these ancient Greeks are your ancient Jews. Jebber Jiborrin Ghebre Jabbarat
The word Semitic was concocted out of the word Kemetic, from the word Kemet meaning 'Black Land', the Egyptian never called themselves Egyptian. Egypt came out of the Greek word Ægyptus. Proto Kongo-Niger Scripts and symbols has afforded us the ability to decipher ancients scripts and come to this conclusion. There are many affinities between Proto Kongo-Niger Scripts and symbols, and Egyptian or Kemetic Hieroglyphics. These assertions would be proven later on in another article.
Moremi Ajasoro, Princess of the Yoruba, was a figure of high significance in the history of the Yoruba peoples.
She was a member-by-marriage of the royal family of Emperor Oduduwa, the progenitor of the Yoruba people. She was the wife of King Oranmiyan of Ife (and later Oyo).
A woman of tremendous beauty and a faithful and zealous supporter of her husband and the Kingdom of Ile Ife. At this time there were neighboring tribes called Igbo, who were regularly and successfully raiding the people at and around Ile Ife.
Moremi decided upon a strategy. She went to the nearby river Esinmirin, and vowed to deity that she would make the greatest sacrifice possible if they allowed her to discover the strength of her nation’s enemies. She then went to a place that was raided frequently, and when the raiders did come she allowed herself to be captured.
Being very beautiful she was taken as booty to the Igbo King. She was very confident and skillful, and soon won the trust and affection of the King and people in Igbo land.
She became familiar with their customs and tactics of warfare. She found that the Igbo, in preparation for battle, would cover themselves from head to toe with Ekan grass and bamboo fibers. She realized that if someone could pass amongst the Igbo warriors with a torch that they could be defeated. Feeling that she had adequate knowledge, she escaped, to the great surprise of her Igbo captors. Knowing the warfare secrets of the Igbo, the people of Ife were forever freed from the terrors of these previously invincible warriors. In order to fulfill the pledge she made to Esimirin before embarking on her mission, she made sacrifice of rams and lambs, but these were not accepted. The priests told her that the only sacrifice the Gods would accept was her only son -Oluorogbo.

Dejected she allowed her only son to be sacrificed in gratitude for saving her people (don’t you agree this is reminiscent of the story of Mary and Jesus in the Bible).
The Ife nation mourned with her and she was held in the absolute highest esteem of any women in the Kingdom.
They committed to forever be her sons and daughters in memory of her sacrifice.
