MC Oluomo: Police speak on violence at APC rally, declare Mustapha ‘Seigo’ Adekunle wanted

Lagos State Police Command has declared Mustapha Adekunle, aka Seigo, wanted for attempting to disrupt the APC rally held at Skypower Ground, Ikeja, on Tuesday.

Seigo, an NURTW chieftain, was said to have attended the rally with his supporters.

However, at the tail end of the event, Seigo and his group, the Police said, violently engaged other supporters of the party.

In the ensuing melee, one MC Oluomo, another NURTW chieftain, was stabbed and was rushed to EKO Hospital where he is currently recuperating, while two other victims of the attack were taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for treatment.

“The crisis was quickly contained by policemen at the venue”, CSP Chike Oti, Police Public Relations Officer, said in a statement Monday night.

“It will be recalled that a few hours before the rally started, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, held a meeting with the leaders of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW ), Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) and other affiliate groups where all the parties agreed to eschew violence before, during and after the electioneering.

“It was therefore surprising that a prominent member of NURTW would attempt to violently disrupt a peaceful political rally.

“In view of the development, the Command wishes to encourage members of the public with useful information on the whereabouts of Mustapha Adekunle popularly known as Seigo to report such at a nearest police station.

“Meanwhile, two persons have been arrested in connection with the incident.”
