Soyinka Challenges Omisore To Sue Him On Bola Ige’s Murder

Popular Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has dared former the former deputy governor of Osun State and new National Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Iyiola Omisore, to sue him over his recent comments that Omisire should be held responsible for the murder of former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Chief Bola Ige..Information Guide Nigeria

According to RIPPLES NIGERIA, Professor Wole Soyinka said this a media parley in Lagos on Thursday with the theme “Forget the past, forfeit the future: A nation seceding from humanity.’’

Professor Soyinka said he would be “delighted to be involved in legal proceedings to unravel the killers of former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige.”

Recall that shortly after Omisore emerged as the APC National Secretary on March 26, Soyinka, in a statement said any attempt at resolving the long-standing murder case has been already “hamstrung and disrobed of credibility with the emergence of a prime suspect in the case as the national secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).”

Responding to this, Omisore, in a letter dated April 4, 2022, by his lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole (SAN), advised Soyinka to “be better informed and take necessary steps to withdraw the earlier comments.”

Omisore Noted that he held the renowned scholar in high esteem as an elder statesman and Nobel laureate, adding that Soyinka either “made the statement without full knowledge of what had transpired in the matter or as a result of misinformation.”

RIPPLES NIGERIA reports that Soyinka said;

“That doesn’t mean you were responsible for the person’s death. But certain actions led to other actions.

“Such a person should not be made an envoy of a ruling party even if the party desired to give him a post.

“We are talking of the party of those in charge of the governance and justice of this country. The leadership of APC and I am not talking of Buhari alone, do you have to unleash scorpions on our memory? It is not Soyinka who provided this. It’s those who were so insensitive, who rubbed that murder in our faces.Jamb Result

“I will be delighted to go to court so that we can go into details. I asked the APC leadership to have a rethink because the issue will not go away.”
