Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, has warned the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari against unleashing security operatives on Nigerians when they gather to exchange ideas.

Soyinka made this known while speaking in Badagry on Saturday at the unveiling of an art gallery in commemoration of his 85th birthday.

Naija News reports that security agents had recently shut down a venue for a symposium where Soyinka and others were scheduled to speak.

Speaking at the event, Soyinka said “It is important to send a strong message to this government and to the security services to stop trying to muzzle people when they come together to exchange ideas.

“You’re reducing them as human beings and you’re also reducing yourselves as human beings because it means you’re afraid to listen.”

The human rights activist also advised Nigerians not to believe every material they see on social media.

“Be very, very careful what you believe even when you read such materials in social media or sometimes in newspapers because in this country, we have a most fertile multiplier effect,” Soyinka said.

“When somebody hears something, he puts it on the Internet, it spreads and an industry begins as people start commenting on things which never existed.

“Sometimes on social media, you’ll even see trending quotes supposedly from me, with my name, my photograph, with statements which represents what those people want to say but lacked the courage to say it.”
