(SNN)– A man has come out to publicly blast a professor who wished the departed British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth an ‘excruciating pain”.
Professor Uju Anya is a Nigerian-born American professor who resides in the United States of America.
Professor Uju Anya took to her twitter handle to wish the late Queen Elizabeth II an excrutiating pain when she heard the monarch’s health was failing. She blamed the late Queen for the millions of lives lost during the Nigerian civil war which lasted for 3 years. According to her, the Queen supplied the Nigerian army with guns and other amunitions that enabled Nigerian army massacre millions of Igbos.
In her words, “If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star”
She continued, “On Thursday, I was just reading the BBC, which had been making announcements that there were worries for the queen’s health and death was imminent. It brought on a whole lot of emotions and pain — primarily pain — about who this monarch was and what she represented, not just in the broad sense of what her throne represents, the legacy of enslavement and colonialism, but also the direct harm. People say, “Oh, she’s just a figurehead, she didn’t really do anything, as if she’s somehow withdrawn from this. They tell me, You’re talking about colonialism. Was that even in your lifetime?
“My experience of who she was, and the British government she supervised, is a very painful one. The harm shaped my entire life and continues to be my story and that of the people she harmed — that her government harmed, that her kingdom harmed, however you want to frame it. The genocide of Biafra killed 3 million Igbo people, and the British government wasn’t just in political support of the people who perpetrated this massacre; they directly funded it. They gave it political cover and legitimacy.
“Queen Elizabeth was a representative of the cult of white womanhood,” she concluded.
Professor Uju’s tweet and apparent lack of empathy for the departed monarch obviously didn’t go down well with many, including Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon. But a Nigerian, named Sheik Usman decided to give the professor a piece of his mind.
He replied, “Every idiot wants to seek attention on social media. I am an igboman but this bastard is one of the reasons why Africa is still in the dark. Instead of Africans admititng their failures and seeking for solutions for their problems, they will be blaming the whites. The mumu professor should tell us why she is living in the USA and not in her village in Nigeria. You wish pain to the departed Queen Elizabeth but you never wished pain to your forefathers for killing twins, doing human sacrifice, worshipping idols practising witchcraft .
“You never wished them pain for wife inhertance, widow prostitution, plundering of widows and cannibalism and witchcraft present in igboland in those days. You never wished igbo politicians pain for looting the treasury. You never wished yourself pain for all your iniquities. I can say that you’re demon possesed .If it were a white man that uttered this against a black man you will be the first to shout racism. In you I can see demonism, envy, hatred and mumurism. You blame the Queen for civil war but never blamed Nzeogwu and other igbo soldiers who killed norther Nigerian leader. Madam you will perish unless you repent”. He concluded.
Queen Elizabeth II is obviously Britain’s longest serving monarch. She ascended the throne at the age of 26, and reigned for 70 years. She died on Thursday at the ripe age of 96, and her son, Prince Charles has been crown King Charles III.
