False claims trail man who asked Prof. Soyinka to vacate his window seat

False claims trail man who asked Prof. Soyinka to vacate his window seat

False claims trail Tosin Odunfa, the young man who asked Nobel Laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka to vacate the window seat for him on a commercial flight‎, as close watchers have found out that some of the claims he made do not exist.

Odunfa who garnered national attention yesterday when he identified himself as the man who Tonye Cole reported on his Instagram page to be adamant about leaving his window seat for Wole Soyinka, claimed to be a lecturer at the university of Mannittawiw.

The young man who defended his action also claimed he is a PhD holder who teaches Electromagnetic Theory at the University of Mannittawiw.

But findings show that the University does not exist even as further findings reveal that the man in question works for EbonyLive TV, owned by Mo Abudu.

@YarKafachan wrote; “Even if I am drunk and you pour thick pap on my two eyes, I can tell you that the boy photographed by Tonye Cole is not Tosin Odunfa. It is not him. This distraction in unnecessary.

A second user added; “So the @TosinOdunfa who claimed to be the guy involved in the Prof. Wole Soyinka’s saga was an impostor after all. He claimed to have a PhD from the University of Mannittawiw but there’s no such university.”

While another fired thus; “First of all. Tosin Odunfa is a liar. University of Mannittawiw doesn’t exist. How can you work for Mo and not know Pof. Wole Soyinka. You have a PhD in Electromagnetic Theory but you work as a TV presenter at EbonyLife. This dodo you and Mo Abudu is frying has dried to black kpekere.
