The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, said the cows found in the neighbourhood of Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, belonged to a Yoruba man and not a Fulani man.

Ajogun made this known in an interview with newsmen during his visit to the compound.

He explained that three cows strayed into the compound and they were immediately driven away.

He said, “Three of the cows that the guy was driving strayed into the compound of the Nobel Laureate, not more than about 20 metres away from the entrance and they were immediately chased out.

 “I also learnt that our highly revered Nobel Laureate even saw the cows heading towards the direction of his compound and of course directed that they should be chased away and they were chased away.

“The cows are owned by a gentleman by the name Kazeem Sorinola who is a Yoruba chap, and that is the joy of everything. He placed the cows in charge of a Fulani chap. So, the cows are not owned by any Fulani man, but the person in charge of the cows is a young Fulani man.”
