Those Who Believed What I Am Alleged To Have Said About Igbo is a Moron- Wole Soyinka

The Internet and Social Media per se have been satiated with the report about Noble Peace Laureate, Wole Soyinka's statement against the Igbo Nation in a speech he made at the Hutchins Centre, Harvard University.
Excerpt of his quote against the allegation is posted below:

I have just read a statement attributed to me on something called The Cable, a news outlet, evidently one of the Internet infestations. My lecture at the Hutchins Centre, Harvard University, was video recorded. Anyone who believes what I am alleged to have said must be a moron – repeat, a moron.
It is demeaning, sickening and boring to have to deal with these cowards who cannot fight their own battles but must fasten their imbecilic pronouncements on others. Only the mentally retarded will credit this comment attributed to me regarding the Ndigbo voting pattern in the last elections. I strongly suspect the author of this despicable concoction, and may make a further statement, once the source is verified.
