Dr Olaokun Soyinka, the son of Nobel Laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka said on Wednesday that the house of his father was not attacked by Herdsmen.
He asked the public to disregard a video that has gone viral online, saying that Soyinka’s home in Jegba Republic near Abeokuta was invaded by suspected herdsmen.
Dr. Soyinka said “although some cows were spotted near the house located between Kemta Housing Estate and Ilugun – Itoko community, there was no attack on it by anyone.
The former Commissioner for Health in Ogun State, said: “This is not true, please do not circulate further. Help to debunk it. It is an attempt to encourage discord. Although some cows were spotted, neither Prof. nor his house was attacked by anyone.
“I have confirmed this today (yesterday) directly myself from him (Prof. Soyinka). Do not fall for this attempt, whatever the motive, to further inflame this problematic situation.”
