The first daughter of late Nigeria Military President, Gumsu Fatima Abacha, has taken to social media to slam Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka over the . he made about her father, late Sani bacha.
She took to her Facebook page and wrote; “Wole soyinka oya na!!! Over to you!! Wicked old hawk …. your hate for my father shall kill you. Olori buruku mad cow.”
Recall that the acclaimed playwright told President Buhari that he cannot honour MKO Abiola in one breath and admire his tormentor Sani Abacha in the same breath.
Soyinka, who spoke in Abuja on Wednesday at the national honours investiture for heroes of democracy, said that although he understood Buhari’s official loyalty to Abacha, it shouldn’t take preeminence over the preservation of democracy.
“Dear Mr. President, you cannot honour Abiola in one breath and admire his tormentor in the same breath. So, as we have the Hall of Heroes in one hand, we also have the Hall of Shame as a lesson to future generations,” he said.
