Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has accused the police of lying when it denied the reported Fulani herdsmen attack on his house.
Soyinka made this known in a statement where he narrated his side of the incident.
He stated that he was not personally attacked but the herdsmen and cows attacked his residence.
He also countered the police version which reported just a stray cow, noting that it wasn’t even a case of two or three cows but a whole herd.
Recall that Ogun State Police Command debunked rumours that Professor Soyinka was recently attacked in his house by some Fulani herdsmen.
However, on Thursday, Soyinka who was making a public statement for the first time about the incident noted that his property was attacked by the Fulani herdsmen on Tuesday.
He also warned the police on the need to be straightforward when putting information out to the public, particularly, sensitive ones such as his own experience.
