Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka has urged the Federal Government to apologize to Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over the invasion of his residence in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS.
NEWSCASTARS.COM had reported that the DSS on Thursday invaded Igboho’s residence killing two of his allies.
Reacting to the development in an interview with BBC on Monday, Soyinka 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.
“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.”
