Today, Lagos State police command sealed off the venue of a symposium where Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka and other speakers where to address the state of insecurity in the country.
The programme organised by a group known as Coalition for Revolution (CORE) was billed to hold at 46, Ibijoke street, Oluyole bus-stop, Oregun, Lagos. Femi Falana, human rights lawyer, Affiong Affiong, a lawyer, and Femi Aborishade, an activist, has as its theme: “Democracy, State Repression and the State of insecurity in Nigeria”.
Reacting to the situation on Twitter, Reno Omokri, a former presidential media aide wrote, ‘Wole Soyinka co-created the Frankenstein monster that General Buhari has become with his ‘anyone but Jonathan’ mantra. Now Jonathan is OUT of POWER and Soyinka is OUT of FREEDOM and he wants us to come OUT on the streets? No. Enjoy your monster!
So disappointed that a Professor, who is also a Nobel Laureate, expected a man of doubtful school certificate to be his messiah. Soyinka is crying dictatorship? Dry your crocodile tears. You produced & directed the nightmare starring General Buhari.
Soyinka and co removed Jonathan, whose “political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian” and CROWNED Buhari, who threatened that “the dog and baboon will be soaked in blood” and they are surprised when there is blood all over Nigeria?
Herdsmen who STEAL, KILL and DESTROY, held a meeting in Zamfara to explain why they decided to kill Nigerian citizens, and General Buhari did not shut down the venue.
But he shuts Soyinka’s venue. Imagine! Anyway, Soyinka’s is reaping what he sowed. Dear Wole Soyinka, Are you not endorsing again? What happened to your romance with General Buhari ? Have you forgotten ‘anyone but Jonathan’? Have you forgotten when you were campaigning for Buhari? Your tree has matured. Enjoy its bitter fruit!
