Soyinka Visits Igboho In Cotonou

Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka was seen at the Nigerian end of Seme border around noon on Sunday. He was crossing to Cotonou in Benin Republic.

He was mobbed by a crowd while waiting to complete immigration formalities and was repeatedly asked where he was headed.

His response was that he was on a visit to the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Sunday Ighoho to “break the Moslem fast with him.”

Reminded that neither he nor Ighoho was a muslim, he asserted that it made no difference. He said he had wished to see Igboho, so as to sympathize with his predicament.

Ramadan is as good as any other season to express non-denominational solidarity, added the Professor.

Igboho, who escaped from a deadly raid on his Ibadan residence by the operatives of the Department of State Service on July 1, 2021, was arrested in Benin Republic on his way to Germany on July 19 together with his wife, Ropo. His wife was released earlier.
