Nigerians all over the world have been urged to speak out and condemn the brutal murder of a British soldier on a London street on Wednesday.

Amb.Habib Habu, Consul General of Nigeria in New York stated this in a message on Thursday.


According to him, the beheading of the 25-year-old soldier was done by a British citizen and not a Nigerian as speculated, his name does not confirm his nationality.

British born Michael ‘Mujahid’ Adeboloja with an accomplice beheaded a British Soldier on a street in Woolwich, London.

The Consul General noted that Nigerians are a great people and that they are usually positive additions to any culture they join.

“It is now being made to look like Nigeria has shown itself `again’ in the action of this British boy who beheaded a soldier on Thursday.

“This lunatic was born in the United Kingdom, never been to Nigeria, issued a birth certificate in the UK and hold a British passport.

“He now commits a barbaric act and suddenly he is now a Nigerian?’’ he queried.

“Is it because he is not Gabriel Agbonlahor playing for Aston Villa and the Three Lions, or Andrew Osagie, UK’s reigning 800 metres champion, or Lawrence Okoye, British Discus Record Holder (68.24 metres), 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,’’ the Consul General stressed.

He said that Nigeria should just be left out of the wicked act, saying that “we have our own problems to contend with.’’
