Biafra: Prof Uju Anya Gives Reason For Wishing Excruciating Pain To Queen Elizabeth II
Professor Uju Anya has received heavy backlash over the ‘excruciating’ statement while reacting to the demise of Queen Elizabeth II, whose 70 years of reign ended yesterday at 96the age.
The tweet, which has attracted various reactions and was further disabled by the media giant, Twitter wished the Queen to experience pain resting in her bosom upon learning the unfortunate news.
In her @Ujuanya words:
I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal
empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.
Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) and many personalities across the globe have come against the professor’s stance, noting her position does not represent one contributing to making the world a better place.
Jeff’s post read: “This is someone supposedly working to make the world better? I don’t think so. Wow.
However, Mr. Anya has added to her early statement explaining the sudden outburst.
She noted the reign of the deceased Queen oversaw the killing of Biafrans and continued suffering her family experiences currently.
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.
