Twitter outrage over MC Oluomo's invitation to Unilag

A Spokesman for the Chairman of the National Union of the Road Transport Workers in Lagos State has denied reports that his principal, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, was sponsoring violent attacks against the # protesters.

According to a report by PUNCH, MC Oluomo’s Spokesman, Jimoh Buhari said:

“We have no hand in the attacks. People should stop accusing us wrongly. Were the thugs wearing NURTW uniforms? Is MC Oluomo holding a political office? He has no hand in the case.”

Buhari earlier said that members of the union were also victims of police extortion and it would therefore be unwise of them to thwart a protest that seeks to bring an end to police brutality.

A member of the NURTW, however, told The PUNCH that the heavy traffic caused by the protesters was affecting their livelihoods.

He said, “On a normal day, I do 10 trips. Since these protests started, I have had to reduce my trips to five. It is worse that we are burning fuel and our buses are not operating at full capacity because of the COVID-19 protocol.

“Long hours in traffic cause fuel to burn faster and we are losing money due to no fault of ours. So, some boys decided that it was time to get these protesters off the roads.”
