A Twitter user made the claim that Nigerians fear their own gods but like their foreign counterparts.
After comparing foreign movie characters to local deities in his tweet, @ayomitidipupo argued that Nigerians have been taught to despise themselves and admire their captors.
The tweet read;
Nigerians are scared of Yemoja but love little Mermaid. They say Sango is evil but Thor is their Hero. They adore storm but don’t want nothing to do with Oya. They are in love with Aquaman but hate Olokun We have been indoctrinated to hate ourselves and love our enslavers.
