Soyinka Writes Open Letter To Buhari (Read Full Letter Here)

Following the re-arrest of Omoyele Sowore by DSS operatives on Friday, Nobel laureate,
Wole Soyinka has described the DSS as a pack of wild dogs in a letter he addressed to President Buhari.

Soyinka in his letter asked Buhari to teach the security operatives some court manners following the alleged desecration of the courtroom during the arrest of the revolutionist on Friday.

His words:

โ€œOnly yesterday, in my commentary on the ongoing Sowore saga, I pointed out the near-perfect similarity between plain crude thuggery and the current rage of court disobedience. Little did I suspect that the state children of disobedience would aspire to the level of the African wild dogs on a pack hunt,โ€ Soyinka said.

โ€œI apologize for underestimating the DSS capacity for the unthinkable. I reiterate the nationโ€™s concern,
indeed alarm, about the escalating degradation of the judiciary through multiple means, of which disobedience of court orders is fast becoming the norm.

โ€œMay I remind this government that disobedience calls to disobedience, and that disobedience of the orders of the constitutional repository of the moral authority of arbitration โ€“ the judiciary โ€“ can only lead eventually to a peopleโ€™s disregard of the authority of other arms of civil society, a state of desperation that is known, recognized and accepted as โ€“ civil disobedience.

โ€œIt is so obvious โ€“ state disobedience leads eventually to civil disobedience, piecemeal or through a collective withdrawal of recognition of other structures of authority. That way leads to chaos but โ€“ who set it in motion? As is often the case, the state, unquestionably. Such a state bears full responsibility for the ensuing social condition known as anomie.

โ€œIt has become imperative and urgent to send this message to President-General Buhari: Rein in your wild dogs of disobedience. And for a start, get a trainer to teach them some basic court manners!โ€
