Wole Soyinka Speaks On Video Asking Igbo Indigenes To Leave Yorubaland

Wole Soyinka Speaks On Video Asking Igbo Indigenes To Leave Yorubaland (Updated: 2 years ago)


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 August 2019, Grandson was arrested in London for allegedly “stirring racial discrimination” against the Igbo and Fulani ethnic groups and also “encouraging terrorism”.

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

“This is a warning to the Igbo people in Yorubaland. We are giving you a 48-hour ultimatum from today, Friday 23rd October, 2020 until Sunday, 25th of October, 2020 to leave Yorubaland,” he said.

“From Monday 26th of October, we will close the roads, stop all the vehicles across Yorubaland and every Igbo national will be dealt with accordingly. What happened at Ore in Ondo state in August 1967 are just highlights of what we are going to do from Monday, 26th October, 2020.”

In August 1967, there was a mid-west invasion (operation torch) in Ondo state between Nigerian and Biafran military forces during the civil war.

However, Soyinka, in a statement on Saturday, condemned the video, saying the threat “is the work of sick, cowardly minds”.
