Professor Uju Anya, a Nigerian living in the UK, responded to the controversy caused by her post by wishing Queen Elizabeth “excruciating suffering” before passing away.
According to an earlier story from Anaedoonline.ng, Jeff Bezos was among those who reacted negatively to Uju’s remarks.
As a result of her efforts to uncover the hidden reality, Uju claimed she has faced backlash, condemnation, ridicule, and many forms of abuse.
Uju also stated that the contentious tweet, which many have referred to as a “unguided remark from a naughty researcher,” has caused her to risk losing friendships, professional connections, and other acquaintances.
Despite all, the professor said, she is unaffected by the pressure and threats, which mainly come from Western associates.
She wrote: “A journey of a thousand miles starts with a step as rightly put, in the past few days I have been the global topic of discourse not that my assertions were manipulated but because I am a woman of honour, I should shy from the truth.
“It’s pertinent to note that I have received backlash, condemnation, criticism and all sort of attacks because I attempted to unravel the hidden truth.
“I am on the verge of losing my friends from the west. My colleagues and associates in the field of research. I have been subsequently condemned and referred to my tweet as unguided utterances from the mischievous scholar but I laugh because they mostly come from a sect that is ignorant of the precolonial, colonial and post-colonial history of my home country – Nigeria.
“I must appreciate your love and support in the fight against injustice as well as your dream for a world of equitable justice and fairness. I am not moved by the pressure and threat coming from mostly my western associates as the ‘The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in the moment of convenience and comfort, but where he stands at the time of challenge and controversy.”
