ALHAJI Musiliu Akinsanya known as MC Oluomo, prominent leader of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos state has described as untrue the rumour making the round in the state, linking him
to the death of another member of the union, Rasaq Bello, popularly called Hamburger.
The victim, ‘Hamburger’ was shot dead on Monday, May 29, during the All Progressives Congress, (APC), primaries held for Councilor seats across the state at Shogunle, Oshodi.
Contained in a statement issued by the NURTW boss, he said : “It has come to the notice of the camp of Musiliu Akinsanya who is popularly known as MC Oluomo that some people are linking his name as the one behind the brutal murder of another prominent member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Rasaq Bello, popularly called Hamburger.”
“It should be known that as at the time of the primaries in the Shogunle area of Lagos during the local council primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that led to the death of Hamburger, MC Oluomo was away in the USA where he has been for some months now.”
“Aside being out of town, several times before now, he has sponsored advertorials both in newspapers and radio on the need to maintain law and order before and during the electioneering period based on what the national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu ordered.”
“It is rather painful that the death of someone who had no prior problem with MC Oluomo could be linked to him. This is an appeal to the general public to discard such damaging rumour. MC Oluomo knows nothing about the death and also abhors violence of any form not to talk of taking a life”, its continued.
