Police Colluded With MC Oluomo To Unleash Thugs On Igbo People – Atiku’s Aide Slams Tinubu
The Media Aide to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Phrank Shaibu, has knocked the Bola Tinubu campaign council for calling on the National Broadcasting Commission to fine Television and radio stations that continue to invite Peter Obi of the Labour Party for interviews challenging the presidential election.
In a statement to Naija News, Shaibu commended rights group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), for asking a Federal High Court to bar the NBC from suspending the licence of broadcast stations
He added, “Tinubu’s campaign team has already given us a glimpse of what his administration will look like. It will be about the suppression of voters’ rights, unimaginable corruption, repression of freedom of speech, and a total compromise of government agencies.
“For a man who rose to power over the claim that he led the struggle for the actualization of the June 12 mandate, this is another Nigerian tragedy.”
Shaibu also said the police, the Department of State Services and other security agencies ought to go after all those who unleashed attacks on innocent voters in Lagos but the response from the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State that the election was peaceful was an indication that the police had no plan to arrest anyone.
He said the failure of the police to arrest the Chairman of Lagos Park and Garage Committee, Musilu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, after threatening Igbo people in a viral video was evidence of collusion.
Shaibu said, “MC Oluomo – a henchman of Tinubu – was seen on video threatening Igbo and making inciting comments. Rather than arrest him, the Force Public Relations Office, Muyiwa Adejobi, said he was only joking. Amnesty International rightly called on the police not to treat this threat with kid gloves but the police ignored this.
“Viral videos show that on the day of the election, policemen looked the other way while innocent people were pummeled. Despite all the attacks in his home state where he voted, Tinubu has failed to comment. This is the sort of leadership he plans to give Nigerians.”
Shaibu also knocked the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, for stalling the electoral offences bill which, if signed, could be used in dealing with electoral offenders.
He said Gbajabiamila was acting out a script written by Tinubu.
