Former Governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff has issued a reply to Wole Soyinka’s ‘Wage of Impunity’ article.
Speaking through the Commissioner of Information and Home Affairs under his administration, Mr. Inuwa Bwala, Sheriff who has been accused of funding the operations of the deadly Islamist sect, Boko Haram, said Soyinka was only entertaining Nigerians with his mastery of the English language.
“As the ‘cultist’ we know him (Soyinka) to be, being the founder of a confraternity for which the world is still waiting for answers from him, he is the least morally qualified to speak on the alleged involvement of any Nigerian in whatever crime.
“We challenge him to name this person he says he knows as a sponsor of Boko Haram in the Central Bank, if he is as patriotic as he claims to be. We also challenge him to prove to Nigerians that he is not the cultist we have always known him to be.
“No security agency anywhere or an individual who claims to have investigated this matter independently can dictate to Nigerians or our security personnel what to do about this Boko Haram menace. Therefore, this needless diversion is unwelcome.” he said.
