Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has maintained he doesn’t consider Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho as criminal.

Speaking with journalists at the Freedom Park in Lagos on Friday, the Nobel Laureate said the Nigerian Government should rather tag herdsmen killing and raping innocent individuals as criminals

Soyinka said: “I refuse to accept that Igboho is being chased because he peacefully demonstrated his position vis-a-vis the destiny of this nation, which is a fundamental human right of any body.

“Somebody calls for secession, calls for a separate state, I don’t consider that, and nowhere does it deserve to be called a criminal act.

“And in addition, commit criminal acts against such an individual, which is what the government, the security forces did by raiding Igboho’s home in the middle of the night, killing two of his own people, then claiming, without a warrant or anything, they found weapons in his home.”
