Catherine Acholonu, author of They Lived Before Adam: Prehistoric Origins of the Igbo, The Never-Been-Ruled (Catherine Acholonu Research Foundation, 2009). The book details her research on the Ikom Monoliths of Cross River State, Nigeria. She argues that these stones inscriptions were made by the common ancestors of what she refers to as the Niger-Benue sub-family of Nigerian tribes and that they reveal the lost civilizations of ancient Nigeria.
