Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, says the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has attained an “unprecedented level of paranoia”, following the charges of treason filed against Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters.

Naija News recalls that the administration of President Buhari filed seven counts of treasonable felony and money laundering against Sowore.

This online news platform understands that the charges against Sowore were filed a day before the expiration of the detention order of the Federal High Court in Abuja, permitting the Department of State Services (DSS) to keep Sowore for 45 days.

Apparently displeased with the charges, Soyinka said in a statement on Saturday that the nation had failed to learn from past experiences.

His words: “This is utterly depressing news. So, the Sowore affair has moved beyond harassment and taken on a sinister direction. Outside the country where I happened to be engaged at the moment, I can testify that the immediate reaction around me was to dismiss this as yet another grotesque product of fake news, of which Nigerians have become the greatest practitioners.

“I confess that I also joined in this school of thought – at the start.

“Further checks have however confirmed that this government has indeed attained an unprecedented level of paranoia. I do not believe that the Justice Department itself believes in these improbable charges, as formally publicised.

“So, once again, we inscribe in our annals another season of treasonable felony, History still guards some lessons we have yet to digest, much less from which to learn. Welcome to the Club, Mr. Omoyele Sowore,” Soyinka said.
