Omisore to Soyinka: retract your statement

All Progressives Congress (APC) National Secretary Senator Iyiola Omisore yesterday demanded the retraction of the statement by Nobel Laureate Prof Wole Soyinka on the Chief Bola Ige murder case.

He said although he held the world renowned scholar in high esteem as an elder statesman and Nobel Laureate, he either made the statement without full knowledge of what had transpired in the matter or as a result of misinformation.

In a letter of April 4, 2022, by his lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole (SAN), addressed to Soyinka, the APC national secretary advised him to “be better informed and take necessary steps to withdraw the earlier comments.”

The former university don had said that “the resumption of investigation into the murder of a former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige, was 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.”
