The President, Women Arise and Centre for Change, Joe Okei- Odumakin has condemned the invasion of the home of Nobel Laureate,Prof. Wole Soyinka by herdsmen on Tuesday.
Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Tuesday attacked Wole Soyinka’s home in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Southwest Nigeria.
Okei-Odumakin in a statement on Wednesday said after confirming the details of the invasion from Soyinka said one can safely say Nigeria is at the edge of the precipice.
She wrote; “After a confirmation from Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, that some herders struck at his Abeokuta home on Tuesday at 1pm, leading to a siege on the world literary figure, we can now safely say that Nigeria is at the edge of the precipice.
” Soyinka had warned the country last weekend of how close Nigeria is to civil war if President Muhammadu Buhari did not act fast.
” Instead of the president acting, his media aides said he would become a talkative if he continued to speak on Miyetti Allah.
” Nigeria is dying before our very eyes and its death pang is what the attack on Soyinka symbolized.
” We hope security agencies will still have the guts to accost the assailants and bring them to justice, although the prognosis does not look good at all.” she said .
