National Union of the Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Chairman, Lagos State Council Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya known as MC Oluomo, has distance himself from the reports making rounds that he sent thugs to attack EndSARS protesters in Alausa in Lagos state today.
Thugs armed with machetes and other dangerous weapons tried to disrupt the EndSARS protest earlier today, they were however rebuffed by the EndSARS protesters.
Shortly after the incident, some Nigerians came online to accuse MC Oluomo of sending the thugs.
According to a video shared on social media, MC Oluomo who spoke in Yoruba, said he knows nothing about the thugs. He said
Why will I a good citizen send thugs to attack EndSARS protesters that all of us are in support of? I even posted about EndSARS on my page on the 11th of this month.
The government is even in support of EndSARS. Why will I now go against what the government is in support of and then send thugs to attack them?
Please, those who went there, I don’t know them at all.”
