Soyinka reproaches police for seeking to stop planned protest

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.”
