Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka while speaking in Abuja on Thursday at the presentation of Prof. Olufemi Vaughan’s book “Religion and the Making of Nigeria” he discussed what the world would look like if religion had never been invented and condemned killings in the name of religion saying he wondered how any rational being could attempt to justify homicide as an act of devotion.
He said, If we do not tame religion in this nation, religion would kill us. “I do not say kill religion.Though, I wouldn’t mind a bit if that mission could be undertaken surgically, painlessly perhaps, under anaesthesia, effectively sprayed all over the nation or perhaps during an induced pouch of religious ecstasy. “However, one has to be realistic. Only the religiously possessed or committed would deny the obvious.
The price that many have paid, not just within this society but by humanity in general, makes one wonder if the benefits have really been more than the losses.” Can one think of any landscape without religious architecture?
Many Nigerians have paid the ultimate price because of religion and religion is now embedded in our society. In this very nation, in Southern Kaduna, over 800 souls were brutally extinguished suddenly while the issue of grazing land versus farming is unquestionably part of the conflict. It is equally undeniable that religious differences have played crucial role in the conflict.
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 induces 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 concluded

Daughter to one of the former governor of Oyo state and popular social media user,Kemi Olunloyo has come after Biafra agitators who have been attacking her through their Facebook page.
“BIAFRANS STOP GIVING OUR IGBO NIGERIANS A BAD NAME!!”
“…Imagine these Biafran fools claiming they made me popular after they all unliked my page in June 2016. They all rushed back soon as they saw my new 25k fans. I’ve been a public figure since 10 yo on the cover of the Nigerian Tribune. I MADE YOU DUMBASSES POPULAR in the Punch, Vanguard, Newsweek and International Business Times.
Without me none of those reporters would have touched your story abi u forgot when I was writing CNN and BBC vigorously on your behalf as they ignored your foolishness? Ungrateful bastards! Notice how their men call me Ashawo and Harlot when they can’t deal with a real woman skoooling them?
Part of this reason is because the female members of their families are SEX WORKERS and baby factory employees so their self-esteem is low as hell. Stop disrespecting me. I plan to really CASH IN ON YOU in 2017 since you claim you made me popular.
“My anti-Biafra line of T-shirts, mugs and merchandise coming. #HNNBiafra line. Keep clamoring for Kanu. You were violent with the Nigerian forces who you disobeyed and they killed you. You are terrorists, your environment division Avengers have been silenced. There will be no TERRORISTS entertained anymore in #Nigeria…….PERIOD!! Abuse me all you like on Facebook, I just don’t CARE!!” She concluded.
