Atiku Sends Message To Police, Lagos Govt Over MC Oluomo’s Threat To Igbos In Lagos

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate for 2023, has denounced a viral video showing the chairman of the Lagos State Parks Management Committee, Musiliu Akinsanya, commonly known as MC Oluomo, threatening Igbo ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.

Atiku asked the Lagos State administration and police to guarantee that politicians and their proxies follow the state’s democratic fair play regulations.

In a viral video, MC Oluomo was seen warning Igbo residents of Lagos State not to vote for other political parties.

MC Oluomo advised Igbo not to vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC, to stay at home.


Nonetheless, Atiku asked political leaders and their proxies to refrain from inciting violence ahead of the election on Saturday.

In a series of tweets, Atiku wrote: “It is important for political leaders across the country, especially Lagos State, to desist from actions that promote election violence, such that can compromise peace, unity and democracy in our country.

“I am concerned about how lackeys of political leaders in Lagos State have unabatedly made ethnic slurs aimed at intimidating voters in the state in tomorrow’s election.

“I have watched with profound disdain a certain video in circulation where some persons known to be associates of the leaders of the ruling party in Lagos State are issuing threats against other ethnic groups in the build-up to the Governorship and State House of Assembly election in the state tomorrow.

“I condemn this uncivilised behaviour and also condemn the criminal silence of the security agencies and the political leadership in Lagos State and Abuja on this development.

“It is, therefore on this note, that I specifically call on security agencies in the country to ensure that politicians and their protégés submit to the rules of democratic fair-play across the country, especially in Lagos State, for the sake of decency and the promotion of peace and unity.”
