‘Squash those impersonating me online’ – Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has pleaded with Nigerians to help squash ‘identity thieves’ who impersonate him online and operate social media accounts in his name.
He made the appeal at a press briefing organised by the Wole Soyinka Foundation at Freedom Park, Lagos Island.
Soyinka dissociated himself and the Wole Soyinka Foundation from every Facebook and Twitter account operated by those he said were out to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
“They created a Wole Soyinka blogspot or whatever. There is also Wole Soyinka Twitter. Please, I am begging you to note that I don’t do Facebook, I don’t do Twitter and I don’t do blogs.
“I implore you in the name of whatever it is you believe in to help squash them,” he said.
“Please note that they are fake. There is only one Wole Soyinka Foundation,” he added.
The Nobel laureate added that the public should be wary of such “identity thieves” as they are out to defraud the people.
