The Lagos State Chapter of the Labour Party has written to the Department of State Services (DSS) and the U.S Embassy, reporting inciteful and violent threats by Mr Musiliu Akinsanya a.k.a MC Oluomo, a Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Lagos State.
A video which went viral on Thursday recorded MC Oluomo as threatening voters of South-East extraction ahead of Saturday’s Governorship election, warning then to stay at home if they won’t vote the APC.
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.
“We have begged them. If they don’t want to vote for us, it is not a fight. Tell them, Mama Chukwudi, if you don’t want to vote for us, sit down at home. Sit down at home,” he said.
In a letter addressed to Lagos State Director of the DSS, the Labour Party referred the DSS to the video with it described as fanning ethnos political sentiments.
The party whose candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour is a frontline Candidate in the gubernatorial election also informed the DSS that the Oba of Elegushi, Oniru of Iru land, Ayangberu of Ikorodu and other traditional rulers in Lagos State have continued to threaten their supporters.
They urged the DSS to arrest or invite MC Oluomo for questioning and investigation in order to forestall the breakdown of law and order in the state during and after the elections.
In a separate letter to the US Department of State through the US Embassy in Nigeria, the Labour Party asked for the review and revocation of the immigration benefits enjoyed by MC Oluomo and his family members.
