Wole Soyinka Finally Reacts To Viral 'Plane Seat' Saga .

Mo and Soyinka
Professor Wole Soyinka has reacted to the unusual encounter between him and a plane passenger that led to national debate in the last 24-hours.
Recall that mixed reactions have trailed the conversation about the incident where a young Nigerian man 'ordered' Wole Soyinka, out of his seat onboard a flight over the weekend and Mo Abudu's initial reaction to the story also made her a target online.
Media mogul, Mo Abudu has shared Wole Soyinka's own side of the story.
Abudu while reacting had said:  'I will not comment further on this, however as you all know I LOVE and RESPECT Professor Wole Soyinka dearly. Based on this incident, I did receive an email from Professor Wole Soyinka this morning'.
Below is Professor Wole Soyinka's reaction to the whole saga as shared by Mo Abudu:
Hallo Mo, 
Someone sent me Patrick Tonye's comment on the plane incident, and I saw your brief comment. It was a very minor thing and I'd forgotten all about it. However, after reading the boy's response, I became curious.

First, I never exchanged a word with him throughout beyond inviting him to take his allotted seat. Never spoke a word to him after that. Certainly never exchanged contact. So of course, I wonder if it's the very individual  who's posted this or a total fake.

The phenomenon of stolen identities takes very strange dimensions and has become a source of worry. I wonder if this is one such. Any way of your finding out. I don't operate in the social media as you probably recall.
