NOBEL Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has condemned the crude manner in which operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) re-arrested the convener of the #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, in an Abuja court.

He urged President Muhammad Buhari to call the SSS operatives, whom he described as “wild dogs of disobedience” to order.
Soyinka made the remarks on Friday in a statement titled ‘Lessons from the African Wild Dog’, even as he claimed to see much similarity in the manner the SSS operatives invaded the court premises and a video of a pack of the famed African wild dogs’ hunt which he said he watched some years back.
The literary icon equally recalled a comment he made on Thursday where he pointed out that there was “near perfect similarity between plain crude thuggery and the current rage of court disobedience,” declaring that little did he suspect that the SSS men, whom he described as “state children of disobedience” would aspire to the level of “the African wild dogs on a pack hunt.”
He said, “It has become imperative and urgent to send this message to President-General Buhari: Rein in your wild dogs of disobedience. And for a start, get a trainer to teach them some basic court manners.”

I am surprised you are still asking that kind of questions, it should already be obvious, a lot of people in Nigeria are in information bondage, i wonder how we can progress in this state

All the events show that Sowore is indeed innocent, the corrupt system will not let it be, and sorry, if my statement offends you in anyway
