At Berlin literary gathering, Soyinka advises: 'Before you talk literature you better oil your gun'


Speaking on the security challenges, particularly the Boko Haram insurgence,  Nigeria's Literature Nobel Prize Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka argued that "the gun should be demystified,” by creating parallel armies or anything to confront criminality.
  
Prof Wole Soyinka


"When you encounter a faceless, ruthless army, which is what Boko Haram, Ansar al-Dine, Al-Shabaab are - they move like an army, they think like an army and they have only one objective - you are on the frontline. And on the frontline you should have some kind of training of defending yourself. Citizens should be trained to use arms." MORE.
