Last November, a Facebook user Michael Olugbenga Peter posted a comment purportedly made by Professor Soyinka that he would be involved in politics to campaign for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s 2023 presidential bid because of their National Democratic Coalition background.
In a statement titled the Season of Fakery Galore, which is now circulating on social media Wole Soyinka debunked the post as fake news.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission announced that its operatives arrested one Bolarinwa Oluwasegun for his alleged involvement in a 270 million Naira fraud.

According to the EFCC, Oluwasegun made the false representation to defraud Kodef Clearing Resources under the pretext of securing a grant.
