FG Should Apologise To Sunday Igboho – Wole Soyinka

Wole Soyinka has called on the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to apologise to Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.

Recall that the DSS had declared Igboho wanted after invading his home and killing two of his associates.

Igboho had recently been calling for a ‘Yoruba Nation’ over what he has described as a ‘Fulani invasion’ of the South-West.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Pidgin, Soyinka slammed the DSS for invading the activist’s residence.

“My advise 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,” he said.

“If and when Igboho comes to trial, I guarantee you the government will be very embarrassed.

“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.”

He stated that Sunday, Igboho’s fight for freedom was preceded by criminal acts of enemies of Nigeria who “appear to be supported by the force of the State.”

While Soyinka noted he doesn’t ‘like the sound of a Yoruba Nation’ anymore than he likes the sound of a Tiv or Igbo nation, he said the country must be restructured through the decentralisation of power.
