In 1967, during the early days of the Biafran war, Professor Wole Soyinka was accused of being a Biafran spy. The photo was taken the day he was arrested by the Nigerian police. He was put in solitary confinment for 2 years.

Unfortunately a lot of Individuals (pseudo activists) are convinced once they have been incarcerated for a reasonable Cause then they have paid their DUES and must be rewarded with a #CASHOUT

He was jailed for supporting the cause of Biafra.

And now he is being accused of wrong doing because he refused to endorse cluelessness of the last maladministration.

Wole Soyinka (WS), the world's most erudite writer after Williams Shakespeare (WS). See 1986 Nobel recommendation on Mr Soyinka.

I look forward to sharing fresh palm wine with you on the undulating terrain of Ake and hill of Olumo rock, Egba, Abeokuta, the land of our birth.

Ba a wa!

Respect sir.

9ja keeps getting worse on a daily. If it were today he were arrested (9 vans of police+DSS and 1 military van picked up at 1oclock in the morning in his boxer/p.j's, he'd be beat up if there are no cameras if there are cameras he'd be beat up behind the scene)God knows.

Back then then we had youths who were intelligent, responsible and courageous... guess soyinka is below 30 as at 1967
today we have youth who are so much gullible, irresponsible and uncultured...
it's unfortunate!
