Recall that MC Oluomo was reportedly stabbed in the neck at the Lagos APC Governorship rally, which held today at Skypower Ground Ikeja. The NURTW Boss and alleged Oshodi street lord, had shared photos of himself preparing for the rally before the incident. He wrote on Instagram; Am back for action.
He wrote; LAGOS APC flags off rally Kick start. LONGLIVE ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU
LONGLIVE APC LONG SANWOOLU/HAMZAT. APC NEXT LEVEL. EKO A SANWA SO WO , A SANWA SOMO
However few hours after the post, MC Oluomo was stabbed in the neck and reportedly rushed to the hospital where he is said to be in a critical condition. While the identity of the hoodlums who stabbed him is yet to be ascertained, however his camp claims Oluomo’s attackers could be men of the Kunle Poly’s faction of the NURTW.
If you many recall, violence was reportedly caused by a supremacy battle between two rival cults based in the Bariga area of the state and policemen were folding their arms as the thugs’ unleashed mayhem. Journalists, who were covering the event, clustered on the platform to avoid being caught in the crossfire. The thugs did not seem disturbed as the violence continued even while Governor Babatunde Fashola was delivering a speech alongside leaders of the APC in the Kosofe Local Government Area of the state. One of the youth that was attacked attempted to escape, but he was surrounded by assailants and stabbed with a knife and hacked with a cutlass.
