‘They Made Us Abolish Our Cultures’- Nigerians Furious As Britain Crowns King Charles

By Miriam Humbe, Abuja
Nigerians have continued to react  following the coronation of Britain’s King Charles III on Saturday.
Many of them took to the social media  platform, Twitter to speak on the latest development.
Some prayed for God’s blessings upon the king.
Others still, spoke unequivocally about how Nigerians were made to abandon their cultures during the colonial era and embrace the British ways, only for Britain to hold fast unto her own traditions as seen during the king’s coronation.
