The camp of Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as Mc Oluomo, has risen in defence of the National Union of Road Transport Workers top shot, saying he knew nothing about the gruesome murder of another top member of the union, Rasaq Bello, popularly called Hamburger.
The camp maintained that as at the time of the primaries in the Shogunle area of Lagos during the local council primaries of the All Progressives Congress that led to the death of Hamburger, MC Oluomo, was away in the United States of America where he has been for some months now.
Aside being out of town, several times before now, he has sponsored advertorials both in the local newspapers and radio on the need to maintain law and order before and during the electioneering based on what the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, discussed with him and some other stakeholders.
“It is rather painful that the death of someone who had no prior problem with MC Oluomo could be linked to him,” an associate of Mc Oluomo averred.
To them, it is an unnecessary rumour bent on causing undue rivalry and public disorder among people who had no history of rancour between each other.
The associate added: “The general public is hereby advised to discard such damaging rumour because MC Oluomo abhors violence of any form not to talk of taking a life.”
Unconfirmed reports have it that Bello was hit by a stray bullet from the police who were drafted to restore peace to the area before he died.
“MC Oluomo will definitely support the law in finding out and giving the necessary judgment to whosoever is found wanting in the death of Hamburger,” the associate added.
