Nigerian Literature Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka speaks to Reuters correspondent Tim Cocks (R) during an interview in Soyinka's home in the southwest city of Abeokuta July 1, 2014. Nigeria is suffering greater carnage at the hands of Islamist group Boko Haram than it did during a secessionist civil war, yet this has ironically made the country's break-up less likely, Soyinka said.
