Soyinka who is a panelist at BBC News‚Äė ‚ÄėCountering Fake News‚Äô symposium said this in Abuja today¬†said, ‚ÄúI‚Äôve said this before that fake news may cause World War 3 and the fake news will be started by a Nigerian.‚ÄĚ

 

He said it was unfortunate that many false statements have been attributed to him.

‚ÄúDuring the last Presidential election I was quoted as saying that it serves President Jonathan right for marrying an illiterate. Sometimes some people quote me as saying if you vote for a particular candidate, your mother is a goat or your father is a gorilla‚ÄĚ.

Soyinka said last year he saw his obituary many times on social media causing many people to call his phone.
