MC Oluomo not dead – Lagos Task Force

Residents of Lagos have been urged to disregard the rumoured death of National Union Road Transport Workers (NURTW) leader, Mr. Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya (a.k.a. MC Oluomo).

Oluomo was stabbed in the neck by suspected members of a rival faction of the union during a fracas at the campaign flag-off of the Lagos All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Ikeja last Tuesday.

He has since been hospitalized and there have been reports that he might be flown abroad for treatment.

However, Oluomo was rumoured to have died, provoking tension and fears of breakdown of law and order.

To avert violence, the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences Unit (Task Force) issued a press statement, debunking the rumoured death of the motor-park lord.

Chairman of the task force, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi confirmed that Oluomo was not dead, but still recuperating in the hospital.

He stated that the ‘death’ of the NURTW leader was being rumoured by miscreants and hoodlums who wanted to foment trouble and cause panic around Oshodi and other major motor parks in Lagos.

In the statement signed by the Head, Public Affairs Unit of the agency, Adebayo Taofiq, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi was quoted as calling on the leadership of NURTW to immediately address all their members across the state and call them to order as the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP, Edgal Imohimi had directed that any miscreant or hoodlum caught causing or disturbing peace of innocent members of the public would not be spared.

According to the Chairman “Once again we are using this medium to seriously warn miscreants and hoodlums who might want to foment mayhem to desist or face the full wrath of the law, while also urging parents and guardians to closely monitor activities of their wards.

“The agency would continue the use of patrol vans and power-bikes to patrol round all nooks and crannies of Oshodi to forestall any possibility of breakdown of law and order.”

The chairman said he was in touch with Oluomo regularly through telephone and visitations to the hospital.

“Members of the public are hereby enjoined not panic and but go about their lawful businesses around Oshodi and other parts of the state.”
