Nigerian Or British? The Issue Of The Nationality Of Woolwich Terror Killers Michael Adebolajo & Michael Adebowale
You probably heard about the heinous terror attack 2 days ago in the Woolwich area of London, which saw a white British Soldier Lee Rigby stabbed by two black men, who allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as they stabbed him.
The nationalities of the men in their 20s are being touted in mainstream UK press and social media as British-Nigerian.
I’m just wondering, there were a lot of British born athletes of Nigerian descent that did extremely well at the London 2012 Olympic Games, not for one day did the British press label them as “British-Nigerian”, Even Tinie Temah whose parents are Igbo is always referred to as British in the UK media, na we Naija dey always claim him as Naija-British.
So why all of a sudden have these monsters Michael Adebolajo & Michael Adebowale who are as British as the Queen of England all of a sudden Nigerian? What gives?!
As someone said on facebook it is being made to seem like Nigeria has shown itself again” in the action of that British boy who beheaded a soldier.
