An old tweet of American ­based Nigerian Professor, Uju Anya highlighting the reason she quit her marriage to the father of her two children has resurfaced.

Professor Uju Anya has been criticized in the news for her comments following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Hours before the Queen’s death was announced, Professor Anya wrote on her Twitter page, “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”

Twitter took down the tweet for violating its policy.

Dr Anya faced a serious Twitter backlash for the seeming insensitivity – even from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who then came in for criticism himself – but the professor responded by doubling down on the tweet.

While social media is still divided about her comments, others have dug deep into the archives to retrieve some of her old tweets.

This piece will look at Uju Anya personal life.
