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.
