While the status of 36-year-old Meghan Markle as a divorcee was never hidden from her husband, Prince Harry who she got married to yesterday, a Nigerian man identified as Mr. Adeola Samuel Opeyemi however still tagged her a ‘second hand woman’ in a Facebook post he made.
Mr. Adeola Samuel Opeyemi who reacted to the wedding of the couple which took place yesterday, wrote that it was not dignifying;
“For any crowned prince to choose a divorcee as his first wife in life,” referring to Meghan Markle as “second hand” wife.
However after Nigerians of both sexes rose in defence of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, who has recently married the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, he deleted it. He however, would not allow the matter to rest, as he trolled Facebook posts that condemned his initial post.
Mallam Alee Ameen who slammed Mr. Opeyemi over the post, wrote;
“The highest form of derogation is referring to a woman as ‘second hand.
“Not only does it expose ignorance, but it also reinforces the fact that old age doesn’t automatically confer common sense on one.”
Mr. Opeyemi who never showed any sign of remorse over the call out post, replied by writing;
“Yesterday, I made a post as to royalty not well dignify for any crowned prince to chose a divorcee as his first wife in life, which I literarily refer to as “second hand” wife. See crowd on my wall like bees as if I have not made post that yesterday or day before, by this morning I counted over 250coments and counter comments especially the so called feminists.
After perusing the comments, I came to term with something that Nigerians been want they are especially our women don’t like facing reality and been told the truth in plain term. That makes me to see reason why majority go after buhari statement because its the truth and nothing but the truth. I.posted about the massacre of human beings in makoko by government agents and police, only the comrades and few concerns commented even with the pathetic pics of the dead and wounded, but on a post that ordinarily I would have read and laugh they all came to expressed their sentiment expecting me to change my mind as if I didn’t went to school to know that anything not new is second hand.
Anyway, I know the way Nigerians think and reasons, they always want an omelette but don’t always want the eggs shell to be broken. I made my post base on conviction not how you feel or think. You can only fault me if my saying is not true but if you expect me to color it for you so that you can feel good and continue to love me, count me out.
I love the fact that I broke the table and others are using the pieces catch their fancies just like this post. Its true what the bible says that where dead truths are made ,the carcass gather. Let the furore continue, I have no apology. What I know is that not even the senior of the person has and posses my knowledge and God given wisdom”
Here are comments on the post afterwards;
