Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka has revealed what he thinks will cause world war 3. Speaking at a symposium in Abuja on Wednesday, the literary icon identified fake news as a threat to mankind.
He went on to speak about he was quoted as saying prior to the 2015 presidential election.
He said, “I’ve said this before that fake news may cause World War 3 and the fake news will be started by a Nigerian.”
He added, “During the last Presidential election I was quoted as saying that it serves President Jonathan right for marrying an illiterate.
“Sometimes some people quote me as saying if you vote for a particular candidate, your mother is a goat or your father is a gorilla.”
