THE Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria, to apologise to the Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularlly called Sunday Igboho for invading his Ibadan residence last Thursday.
Soyinka said this on Monday during an interview with BBC.
He told the Federal Government to reverse its decision on arresting the Yoruba agitator. He said,
“My advice to the government is that they should stop pursuing Igboho as a criminal because you have begun by acting in a criminal fashion against him.
Soyinka insisted the government should not label Igboho as a criminal and slammed the media parroting the ‘loaded’ government label.
“I think they should tell Igboho ‘we made a mistake, ‘we should not have acted in this way, ‘you are no longer wanted’, ‘go back to your home, in fact, escort him to his home and let him resume his normal life.”
The DSS also declared Igboho wanted over alleged activities threatening the common existence of the country.
