Very recently, fossils of a new hominid were found in South Africa. Archaeologists have named it Homo Naledi
 Basically, we have now discovered another member of our ape family. Homo Naledi joins Homo Sapien, Homo Erectus, Homo Neanderthalis, Homo Habilis and Homo Heidelbergis as one of the great apes that roamed the planet once upon a time
 Just as the cat family has the lion, tiger, leopard, jaguar, cheetah, puma, etc and the horse family has the donkey, pony, zebra, etc, while the dog family has the wolf, fox, hyena, wild dogs, etc, man too is from a pool of other similar hominids
 Fortunately for us, we are the only one of the great apes still in existence. All our cousins have become extinct. We homo sapiens are just the ape that got lucky. We really did not have any right to survive the Ice Age but alas, we did, thanks to the woolly mammoth
 It is generally agreed that these various apes were different species but I think we have an obligation to find out is they ever inter-bred. Could Homo sapiens copulate with homo neanderthalis for instance?
 I ask this because the behaviour of the African does not match that of other homo sapiens in many ways, so I think it is important we find out if we are hybrids of some sort
 For instance, it is un-homo sapien and un-human to remain an eternal consumer. Most human settlements copy, clone and steal technology within five years of being introduced to it
 Just to give you an example. Japan once cut itself off from the rest of the world but on July 8, 1853, four American steam ships wandered into Tokyo harbour dazzling the stunned populace. Do you know that by 1904, just 50 years later, Japan had built a navy of steam ships that defeated the Czar’s naval force in the Russo-Japanese War. How come that 50 years after colonisation, not one African nation has a ship-building capacity?
 Also, the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade existed between the 16th and 19th centuries. That is way too long for any human populace to accept slavery. Normally, after about 50 years, the revolt should have begun
 As the world’s largest black nation and champion of the negro cause, Nigeria owes it to humanity to carry out in-depth research into this matter. I believe we have a right to know if negroid peoples are wholly homo sapien or a hybrid of two or more of the great apes!
