– Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo
Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya, popularly called MC Oluomo has denied threatening the Igbo not to come out on Saturday if they would not vote for APC in Lagos.
A viral video on Thursday showed MC Oluomo, who is the Chairman, Lagos State Park and Garages Management, telling one Iya Chukwudi not to come out if she would not vote for APC.
But MC Oluomo, in a video on Friday with a woman purported to be Iya Chukwudi, refuted the video that has gone viral where he was quoted to have threatened Igbo voters in Lagos.
“The viral video which was edited to reflect the malicious intend of the false purveyors only captured where I was joking with an Igbo woman that we will not be happy if she stayed in the house then vote against my party (referring to APC).
“The video was captured when I was holding a meeting with some residents of Oshodi , Isolo and Ejigbo which include Igbos and the woman referred to as “Iya Chukwundi” was in the meeting,” he said.
“I am surprised that the joke I was cracking with Iya Chukwundi has been twisted to mean I am threatening Igbo in Lagos. I wonder why people would always want to twist your words or a deliberate act to misconstrue my words to suit their selfish interest. The video was edited to only show where I made the joke and they attached a negative message to it,” MC Oluomo said.
The woman in question, Mrs Uche, however, debunked the claim, saying she had a cordial relationship with MC Oluomo.
She stressed that she had been supplying him noodles for a long time, showing how cordial their relationship was.
She also stated that her attention was drawn to the viral video by her daughter. She said it was a joke directed at her at the meeting and that she was equally surprised that people edited the video and were claiming that MC Oluomo was threatening Igbo.
She said “I am still surprised. I never knew the joke MC cracked with me yesterday has been twisted by people. Alhaji Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya is a lover of Igbo and the message is not a threat, rather in the meeting, he said he wants me to vote for him (APC) and that he would prefer I stay at home than vote against him and we all laughed it off.”
