MC Oluomo has come out to clarify the viral video which seemed to show him threatening Igbos ahead of the gubernatorial election in Lagos state on Saturday. He stated that his words were misinterpreted, and he was not threatening anyone. He added that he was merely expressing his passion for the election and speaking to the need for people to vote.
Quoting the statement released by MC Oluomo while sharing a viral video on his Instagram page, he said, "Good afternoon, all my brothers and sisters. My name is Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo. In the meeting I came to yesterday, the person I was referring to was my sister, Iya Chukwudi. This is the one I am referring to. I told her that if you know you are not voting for me, sit down at home."
In addition, he further said, "The next thing I saw was that the video was trending on social media and some people are saying that MC Oluomo is trying to cause violence. My focus is always on peace, and you can see that there is peace in Lagos state. So why will I insist that you should not come out to vote? If I say people should not come out, how will APC get the votes they are supposed to get? How will some Igbos or Hausas not vote for us in Lagos State? APC is my party. Count me out of the rumors you are spreading. The Iya Chukwudi I was referring to was in the meeting."
Over to my esteemed readers, I know you will have something to say about MC Oluomo's statement? Please endeavour to share and write down your thoughts in the comment section below.
