Musiliu Akinsanya, Lagos State Parks Management Committee Chairman, also known as MC Oluomo, has warned Igbos in the state ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.
Addressing supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at a meeting, MC Oluomo threatened Igbos who will not vote for the party to stay at home.
This comes after Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) won in Lagos state during the presidential poll on February 25.
This has positioned Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, LP’s candidate in Lagos state, as a major challenger to incumbent Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the APC.
@erafael2015 said: “God will punish this M.C Oluomo for coming out boldly for the second time to loudly say such a thing again. He is not the only one resident in Lagos as a Nigeria citizen who has right to vote. And he has no authority to decide who vote who in the election.”
@chisannicharles: “He never saw it coming. Threatened the Igbos is off target. A lot of Yorubas are voting LP. I guess he didn’t know it.”
@NNwaebiem: “The Igbos are being disrespected and provoked unnecessarily! The security apparatus will be held responsible should anything happen to the Igbos in Lagos. The foot prints are all over the state!”
@idolax: “Is this guy above the law or probably he’s been aided and abetted by the @PoliceNG @PoliceNG_CRU to continue to threaten citizens against their civic right.”
