Metro Wole Soyinka to Nigerians: If You Don't Regulate Religion, It Will Kill You



Nigerian Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka has called on Nigerians to tame religion.

Speaking during the book launch of Professor Olufemi Vaughan on Thursday, he said failure to tame religion will kill Nigeria.

“If we do not tame religion in Nigeria, religion will kill us.

“Many Nigerians have paid the ultimate price because of religion and religion is now embedded in our society.

“The innocent ones are the ones who often pay the ultimate price in religious crisis. Even religious leaders cannot denounce the murdering acts of religion.

“Religion now induce trauma and anxiety instead of solace that it claims to give. Religion is the ironic product of human inadequacy.

“There is a monster always waiting to pounce on innocent Nigerians under the name of religion,” he added.
