Nobel laureate, WOLE SOYINKA, has berated the Nigerian police for seeking to stop the protest planned against the Federal Government over alleged non-performance.
He described the police action as undemocratic.
Soyinka’s position was contained in an article he sent to an online medium, SaharaReporters, on Sunday.
The Nobel laureate, who said he had sent a message to the Inspector-General of Police, through the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, FATAI OWOSENI, declared that he was shocked to learn from media reports that the office of the IG could issue a statement stopping the protest.
He described the action as “a huge disappointment, a disservice to the cause of democracy, tolerance of dissent, and principle of inclusive governance.”
