Wole Soyinka has been radical since time immemorial. The police guy makes policing look decent compared to what we have today.

Those are highly well-trained officers that can quote why you are been arrested, they can't be bribed. Maybe I'm wrong with that reason why you are arrested because Shoyinka's right was violated actually .

See the way he was confidently walking to police custody, head up high.

He didn't steal his wife's dress and ran away in the middle of the night...

I wonder why some people are crying over an innocent comment. tongue I mentioned no names grin

He doesn't need to steal his wife's dress, people from that side always have rat poison in their pocket waiting for when the going gets tough.
That is why he has one of his hands in the pocket, to cross-check it is the right otapiapia and not indocid.
That was what gave him that confidence.
Luckily for him, it didn't get tougher than what he expected.

What was the tribalistic he-goat Achebe doing while Soyinka was facing the military?

ANS: 100m sprint on the way to Abidjan in a woman's dress. grin

I heard that he got there before the coward General.

Woke Soyinka, an erudite professor who was decieved by a dense, tribal religious fanatic Gen Buhari.

Soyinka ventured to change the narrative of the leopard never changing it's spot.

Like Sarrki said above and I agree, 98% Nigerians are corrupt.
What this means is that Soyinka gave his support for buhari whom he had disparaged in the past, at a fee.


The remaining 2% clean Nigerians are myself and Sarrki.

If only Wole Soyinka would step out to march in a protest against Buhari same way he did against Goodluck Jonathan.

This country is about to go into another recession. Who is gonna save the country this time?
