Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Friday revealed that herdsmen have again invaded his home in Ogun State, Southwest Nigeria.

Speaking with newsmen on Friday at the Freedom Park, Lagos Island,  Soyinka said this time the herdsmen came through another path and made their way to his doorstep.

It is not clear if the Professor was at home during the invasion or if anyone had been hurt.

Herdsmen had last year attacked Soyinka’s home while he was away abroad. He was reported then as saying that he returned from a trip outside the country only to “find that my home ground had been invaded, and a brand-new “Appian way” sliced through my sanctuary. That ‘motorable’ path was made by the hoofed invaders. But both the improvised entry and exit are now blocked.”

Further details on the incident are expected soon…
