Pro-Nigeria Group Fear Violence In Lagos, Ask US To Revoke Oluomo Children’s Visas

The Pro-Nigeria Group has urged the US government to take action in response to the fears of violence in the country’s presidential elections.

America was urged to put an end to purported plans to sabotage the democratic process with violence by the pro-democracy coalition of youth movements and civil society organizations.

A gathering was organized at the American embassy in Abuja by Stephanie Momoh, secretary of the Pro-Nigeria Group, and Lumide George, president of the Coalition of Youth Movements.

The activists brought up Musiliu Akinsanya, also known as MC Oluomo, the former leader of the National Union of Road Transport Workers’ Lagos State section, in their accusations of collaboration (NURTW).

Segun Agbaje, the Lagos Resident Electoral Commissioner, had intended to utilize Oluomo to distribute election materials, but this week the Federal High Court rejected his idea.

As the NURTW national leadership suspended the Lagos chapter last year, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu appointed him as the Chairman of the Lagos State Parks and Garages Management Committee.

The action was a result of, among other things, frequent and violent altercations between union members in several sections of the state that disturbed the quiet of the community.

The “disposition and deeds” of “the motor park kingpin,” according to Pro-Nigeria Group, “portray an irony and tragedy of a political tool in the hands of desperate politicians.”

The statement continues, “It is distressing that MC Oluomo would construct a conspiracy to exploit other people’s children to promote violence in our country. Some of his children live and attend school abroad, some of them in America. His twins, Taiwo and Kehinde Akinsanya, two of MC Oluomo’s children, “were hailed by him on Instagram when they both graduated from state-owned universities in the state of Georgia in the United States,” according to the report.

The coalition requests that MC Oluomo be questioned by the Nigeria Police and that they acquire his promise to act responsibly leading up to, during, and after the elections.

The movements demanded that the State Department put MC Oluomo on a watchlist and that the US government keep an eye on “his upcoming activities.”

“We are also requesting that the United States Government cancel the visas it has granted to Mr. Akinsanya’s children and send them back to Nigeria.

“Sending his children to safety in America and other nations is unjust of MC Oluomo. He also puts these young people’s lives in peril by using other people’s children to continue the abuse.

According to the statement, if MC Oluomo wants the violence to engulf Lagos, it is only right for the violence to “consume him and his children as well.”
