If we are not careful, fake news will start World War 3 and most probably by a Nigerian - Wole Soyinka





If we are not careful, fake news will start World War 3 and most probably by a Nigerian - Wole Soyinka





Professor Wole Soyinka says fake news has become a threat to mankind and that it may cause World War 3. 

Soyinka who is a panelist at BBC News‘ ‘Countering Fake News’ symposium said this in Abuja today said, “I’ve said this before that fake news may cause World War 3 and the fake news will be started by a Nigerian.”

He said it was unfortunate that many false statements have been attributed to him.  
“During the last Presidential election I was quoted as saying that it serves President Jonathan right for marrying an illiterate. Sometimes some people quote me as saying if you vote for a particular candidate, your mother is a goat or your father is a gorilla”.
Soyinka said last year he saw his obituary many times on social media causing many people to call his phone.
