This lunatic was born in the United Kingdom, never been to Nigeria. He was issued a birth certificate in the UK and held a British passport. Suddenly, he is now a Nigerian? This guy is not a Nigerian-British born. …because the accused is not Gabriel Agbonlahor playing for Aston Villa and Three Lions, or Andrew Osagie, UK’s reigning 800m champion, or Lawrence Okoye, British Discus Record Holder (68.24m), or Abiodun Oyepitan, British Olympic Silver and Gold Medalist, or Christine Ohuruogu, Beijing Olympic British Gold Medalist, or Eniola Aluko, British Olympic Female Football star, or Temi Fagbenle, British Olympic Basketball queen, or several other thousands of British citizens with Nigerian connection who are making the country proud, it is being made to look like Nigeria has shown itself again over the action of the British boy who beheaded a soldier yesterday.
