British-born Michael Adeboloja Labelled A Nigerian: Why? by PastorKun(m): 3:19pm On May 23, 2013
Why Is The British Born Terrorist Being Labelled A Nigerian?

My Fellow Nigerian & My Most Dearest ,

By now you all must have heard of the gruesome killing of a British soldier by 2 young British men in
Woolwich, SE, London yesterday.

One of the young men has been identified as Michael Adeboloja
and is being refered to in ALL media reports as Nigerian/­British
OR British/­Nigerian (whatever3-| )

But do you also know that 16 out of the 541 British athletes at the 2012 Olympics Games were Nigerians ?

They are as follows:

Phillips Idowu,
James Dasaolu,
Andrew Osagie,
Lawrence Okoye,
Abdul Buhari,
Abiodun Oyepitan,
Anyika Onuora,
Margaret Adeoye,
Christine Ohuruogu,
Marilyn Okoro,
Eniola Aluko,
Temitope Fagbenle,
Anthony Ogoro,
Anthony Joshua,
Peter Bakare
and Dami Bakare.

All represented Britain at the Olympics and WERE NEVER refered to as Nigerian/­British.

Nigerians !!!

It is time we reject ALL negative being attached to US as a nation
and take pride in our tradition
and culture.

Let the world know that despite our differences and challenges we are good people with kind hearts
and love and with great respect for the human race.

We have in no small way contributed immensely to the world economy. We are energetic
and industrious and no amount of propaganda by the media can take away our PRIDE.

WE ARE NIGERIANS,

I AM A NIGERIAN & PROUD OF IT
and WE SHOULD BE PROUD TO BE A GENUINE AFRICAN BRAND.

Nigerian's in the United Kingdom should speak out and condemn the beheading of a citizen yesterday in UK. The beheading was done by a British citizen and not a Nigerian as speculated, his name does not confirm his nationality. This lunatic was born in the United Kingdom, never been to nigeria, issued a birth certificate in the UK and held a British passport. Suddenly he is now a Nigerian?......This guy is not a NigerianBritish born Michael 'Mujahid' Adeboloja with an accomplice yesterday beheaded a British Soldier on a street in Woolwich, London.Because he 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" in the action of that British boy who beheaded a soldier yesterday.Nigeria should just be left out of this.Please pass on to educate the ignorant ones.

Because......... There is no Gold medal for terrorism. If he had slit the throat of a Terrorist about to attack the U.K, he would be sitting in BBC's studio right now with later appointments to appear on CNN, Al Jezerra, Fox News, Larry King Show, e.t.c.. And he would be called 'The BRITISH Hero'.

But since its not the case, he is everything but a Brit.

I don't fuckin know.

This problem actually can be divided equally. When Nigerians see successful acts in the industry American or British. most times we try our best to claim they are Nigerians even if we know they were born and raised there, which is cray very cray i see no fuckin reason to claim Nationals that don't even see the existence of our country. it's not like they are half Nigerian/American or half whatever.

The thing is to actually stop claiming anyone who doesnt feel like being Nigerian itz fuckin pointless.

This guy aint even half Nigerian, he just a descendant of Nigerians.

Naija till i fuckin die.

[size=20pt]Highly suspicious set of mujahad people. So what if he is Nigerian/British or Senegalese/Congolese? The fact that he hacked a fellow human to death (something I might add is quite the norm in Nigeria) automatically forfeits him of any right whatsoever of being human.

So set aside your politics and become ILLUMINATED.

@ OP

You are on point. He is a british-nigerian... the same way Philips Idowu is a british-nigerian. If they cannot accept one, why must they accept the other.

He is a brit. No doubt. Radicalised in the UK by race hate preachers in the UK. It has little to do with Nig. Even in his rant he never mentioned Boko haram or any Nigerian problems. He was talking about Iraq and Afghanistan. He has no affiliation with Nig other than his familial background.
Feed me more: Western media bais, nothing more.

If he was a white Caucasian, he would have been termed 'a Lunatic'. Or a deranged fellow who should see a psychiatrist.

He looked like he needed to see a Psychiatrist. He clearly was high and probably had psychological problems. Possibly schizophrenic.

I wonder o!

The British media has not called him Nigerian. The British government has not called him Nigerian either. Instead, they called him a Briton of Nigerian descent, which is absolutely correct.

It is us Nigerians calling him 'Nigerian' because his name is Nigerian. For all you care, he may never have seen Lagos, not even in a film.

Forget about where he is from. call him a man possessed by a lunatic spirit that needed deliverance, and we pray he still gets delivered.

Bros forget all these stories. Yes he has a Nigerian blood; the fact remains, he is a British citizen; born and brought up in Britain. When a child does well, the Father takes the accolade, when he turns bad, he suddenly becomes the Mothers child. Ibegi! Na British citizen.
