The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Oshodi has accused the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Edgal Imohimmi of bias in the handling of the violence at the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in Lagos on Tuesday.
This statement came in from the Organising Secretary, Berger Unit, at Oshodi, Semiu Omosansan.
Concise News understands that a member of the NURTW, MC Oluomo, was reportedly stabbed and is set to be flown abroad for treatment.
According to Omosansan, “Adekunle Mustapha (Seigo) was not at the place where union’s state Treasurer Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo) was stabbed.”
He told the Nation that “The incident occurred on the stage where K1 (Wasiu Ayinde Anifowoshe) was performing and he is alive to bear witness that Seigo was nowhere close to the stage.
“This is not the first time MC Oluomo and Siego will attend APC rally as party members and such unfortunate incident has never happened until the state Chairman (Tajudeen Agbede) and his boys decided to attend last Tuesday’s event.
“One of Siego’s boys was killed during the violence. Why is Seigo accused of being responsible for that? We are yet to understand the reason to declare him wanted.
“MC Oluomo was stabbed in the presence of Agbede Tajudeen, NURTW chairman in Idumota, Azeez Lawal (aka Kunle Poly) and others.
“The police should quiz the two (Agbede and Lawal). Agbede even lied that he took MC Oluomo to the hospital, which is not true.
“In a situation like this, we expect that the Commissioner of Police will carry out thorough and unbiased investigations.
“The police are the custodian of law. We still have huge faith and belief in the Force that it will always do the right thing. We implore the CP to get his facts right,” Omosansan.
