Those found guilty of corruption should be jailed – Soyinka


Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has called on Nigerians to join hands in the fight against corruption, stressing that anyone found guilty should be sentenced to prison.

Soyinka made the assertion on the side line of activities marking his 82nd birthday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday.

According to Soyinka, “There is only one way for corrupt people; it ends in the prison. It ends in Ibara or Oba (prisons in Abeokuta) or Kirikiri (Lagos prison).

“Yes, it’s a battle for everybody and definitely the arts must be in front as usual. Not just the arts, the theologians, the moralists, the philosophers, the architects, builders, it’s everybody’s work.

“The law, Nigeria Bar Association; everybody is involved, including you (journalists).”
