Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has told the federal government to stop pursuing Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
According to Soyinka, it is not criminal or illegal for anyone to express intention to leave any federation.
“How can you place the will for separation as a criminal act? That kind of language doesn’t exist in the constitution, it doesn’t exist in law.
"It does not exist in the catalogue of immoralities because it is not an immoral act or position to say that you want to stop being part of an entity or you want to join an entity," he said.
Soyinka stated this during an interview with BBC News Pidgin on Monday.
