Lagos State Parks Management Committee Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, has denied threatening Igbos in Lagos State over the March 18 Governorship and House of Assembly elections.
Naija News earlier reported that Mc Oluomo in a recent party meeting, themed ‘Lagos rising’ warned Igbo voters in the state to sit in their houses on election day if they were not going to vote for the ruling party.
Speaking in Yoruba, the APC chieftain noted that they have begged the Igbos, and if they still insist on voting for their candidate, they should sit at home rather than come out on election day.
In his words: “Iya Chukwudi, if you do want to vote for us, abeg sit down for home ooo, we have begged you people, don’t come out on election day.”
The statement caused outrage on social media with many Nigerians, party chieftains, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, condemning MC Oluomo’s action.
