‘I was only joking with my neighbour’, MC Oluomo denies threatening Igbos in Lagos

Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages (LASPG), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo) has denied threatening Igbos in Lagos State.

Akinsanya, in a video, said he was only joking with her neighbour, Uche , otherwise known as Iya Chukwudi at a parley on Thursday.

A viral video showed the transport chief urging his members to vote for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Akinsanya in the video said: ” We have begged them. If they don’t want to vote for us, it doesn’t call for a fight. Iya Chukwudi, if you don’t want to vote for us, stay at home.”

Akinsanya, who described Iya Chukwudi as his sister and good neighbour, said he has always been relating peacefully with the Igbos living and trading in Oshodi.

“At no point did I threatened anyone. We’ve enjoyed a long harmonious relationship. Not at this point will I do that. I buy things regularly from Iya Chukwudi and was only joking with her.

“Mischief makers took our friendly conversation out of context just to label me as a bad person. Lagos State has been peaceful and we don’t pray for violence in our state,” he said.

Nwagbaraodia, who appeared in the same video, said Akinsanya didn’t threaten her.

According to her, the transport chief always buy noodles and other goods from her.

She expressed surprise that their friendly conversation was taken out of context.

“I thank God I’m now a celebrity. Little thing we joked with has now made me popular. It was my daughter that called my attention to it on social media.

“I and MC Oluomo have been friends for ages. My people, there’s no iota of truth in what people are sharing on social media. MC Oluomo is my good neighbour,” she said.
