You are a cultist, you are least morally qualified’ – Modu Sheriff Replies Wole Soyinka Over Boko Haram

Former Governor of Borno State, Ali
Modu Sheriff
Following Wole Soyinka's widely
published opinion editorial which
centers around the present trend of
insurgency in the country especially as
regards allegations by Australian
Stephen Davis that former Borno State
Governor Ali Modu Sheriff amongst
others were responsible for the activities
of insurgent sect Boko Haram, the
former governor has replied the Nobel
Inuwa Bala, a former commissioner of
information and home affairs who
served under Sheriff when he was
governor of Borno issued a statement in
which he said Soyinka was a cultist and
only "entertaining Nigerians with his
English". Bala also dared the Nobel
Laurent to name the alleged Central
Bank financier of Boko Haram.
"As the 'cultist' we know him (Soyinka)
to be, being the founder of a
confraternity for which the world is still
waiting for answers from him, he is the
least morally qualified to speak on the
alleged involvement of any Nigerian in
whatever crime," Bala said.
"We challenge him to name this person
he says he knows as a sponsor of Boko
Haram in the Central Bank, if he is as
patriotic as he claims to be. We also
challenge him to prove to Nigerians that
he is not the cultist we have always
known him to be.
"No security agency anywhere or an
individual who claims to have
investigated this matter independently
can dictate to Nigerians or our security
personnel what to do about this Boko
Haram menace. Therefore, this needless
diversion is unwelcome," he concluded.
