Lagos authorities to dig deep on MC Oluomo threatening Igbos to vote APC
The Lagos State Police Command are in motion to investigate a video that captured MC Oluomo threatening Igbos to vote APC.
The Police Command, on Sunday, noted that it will investigate the video gone viral, if indeed it is a recent clip, or outdated.
This was made known by the Command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Superintendent of Police (SP), Benjamin Hundeyin.
In the video, the chairman of Lagos State Parks and Management, Musiliu Akinsanya, best known as MC Oluomo, allegedly threatened the Igbos in Lagos at a Polling Unit (PU) somewhere in the Oshodi area, to vote for the ruling party, or they will face the consequences.
He was heard saying: “I repeat am again. Any Igbo wey dem born well, make him come vote for here. Shebi I dey here. If dem born dem well, make dem come vote for here,” he insisted in the 15 seconds video as police officers tried to calm him down.
Hundeyin said: “While the video will be investigated to know if it’s an old, recycled one or not, it should be noted that this is criminal and totally against the Electoral Act, 2022.”
In a second video that made its way to the internet, a supporter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was also captured at a polling unit warning voters they must vote for his party choice or they should go home without voting.
This reportedly happened at the Fehintola Giwa Street Aguda, Surulere, Lagos State, as voters were trying to get through with their accreditation before voting.
In the video, he was heard saying: “This place na APC o. If you no wan vote for APC, make you go home o. If you no fit vote APC for here, go your house. Nobody force you to vote. If I see you vote another party, I go call Luger. This area na APC territory o.”
Hundeyin also said about the video: “This is totally criminal and against the Electoral Act, 2022. Investigation and prosecution will commence.”
