Prof. Wole Soyinka reacts to video asking Igbos to vacate Yorubaland


Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, has called on Igbo indigenes to ignore threats asking them to leave Yorubaland.

In a video circulating on social media, Grandson Adeyinka, a UK-based Nigerian, called on Igbo indigenes to leave south-west states.

In the video, Adeyinka issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the Igbo, warning that those who refuse to leave will be dealt with.

However, Soyinka, reacting to the video, condemned the message, saying the threat “is the work of sick, cowardly minds.”

Soyinka’s remark was contained in a statement he titled ‘Identity Thieves on the Rampage.’
