Soyinka storms Benin Republic for Sunday Igboho
The literary icon was seen at the Seme border around Sunday noon, crossing over to Cotonou, the capital city of Benin Republic.
He was mobbed by a crowd while waiting to complete immigration formalities and was repeatedly asked where he was headed.
His response was that he was on a visit to Sunday Igboho to break the Muslim fast with him.
Reminded that neither he nor Ighoho was a Muslim, Soyinka asserted that it made no difference.
He said he had wished to see Igboho, so as to sympathise with his predicament.
