Sego: Man Who Allegedly Stabbed MC Oluomo Breaks Silence

Wanted National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) member, Mustapha Adekunle, popular as Sego has broken his silence.

Recall that Sego was declared wanted by the police in connection with the stabbing of NURTW chieftain, Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo on Tuesday, January 8, at an APC governorship raly in Lagos state.

In a new interview, Sego denied the allegation of disrupting the rally or stabbing MC Oluomo. He challeneged the police to provide a video that captured him stabbing Oluomo.

“Whoever has any videotape of Sego unleashing mayhem on people should let the world see it. Whosoever has any evidence against Sego should come forward with it. That’s what I want.

“Anybody can fight for his right with his mouth by speaking against what he feels is not right. Besides, employing the use of a weapon is against the law and nobody on Tuesday can say he or she saw me with any weapon.  For emphasis, I did not hold any weapon on that day. I only spoke against what is not right. I went to the rally as a member of Team Lagos and not on behalf of the union. I have been a party member since 1999 and we have been in Team Lagos since then.

“Go and ask Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, Oba Demola Elegushi, APC state Chairman Tunde Balogun and King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal what Team Lagos stands for. I was at the rally under the banner of Team Lagos. Agbede came under the banner of the union (NURTW).” he said

Accusing the police of being biased and wanting to frame Sego up, a another member of NURTW, Semiu Omosansan said Sego was innocent.

According to Omosansan, Sego was not in the place where MC Oluomo was stabbed at the rally.

“Adekunle Mustapha (Sego) was not at the place where union’s state Treasurer Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo) was stabbed. The incident occurred on the stage where K1 (Wasiu Ayinde Anifowoshe) was performing and he is alive to bear witness that Sego was nowhere close to the stage. This is not the first time MC Oluomo and Sego will attend APC rally as party members and such unfortunate incident has never happened until the state Chairman (Tajudeen Agbede) and his boys decided to attend last Tuesday’s event.

“One of Sego’s boys was killed during the violence. Why is Sego accused of being responsible for that? We are yet to understand the reason to declare him wanted.  MC Oluomo was stabbed in the presence of Agbede Tajudeen, NURTW chairman in Idumota Azeez Lawal (aka Kunle Poly) and others. The police should quiz the two (Agbede and Lawal). Agbede even lied that he took MC Oluomo to the hospital, which is not true.

“In a situation like this, we expect that the Commissioner of Police will carry out thorough and unbiased investigations. The police are the custodian of law. We still have huge faith and belief in the Force that it will always do the right thing. We implore the CP to get his facts right.” he said

However, the Lagos state police command spokesperson, Chike Oti,  has said that they have a video of Sego attacking people at the rally.

 “This matter is not debatable, it is on camera. Sego was caught on camera unleashing violence on people. That is the reason he was declared wanted. It is not a case of peddling falsehood or perception, it is about reality. Our declaration of Sego wanted still stands. Whatever anybody has to say on the matter, such a person should come to the police. You do not resort to violence to resolve issues.” he said.

Supreme Court: Hearing On Adeleke, Oyetola’s Guber Suits Begins

Published

on

Petition Tribunal

The Supreme Court has commenced hearing in the appeal filed before it by the gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Paryy (PDP), Senator Ademola Adeleke.

Following the September 22nd governorship election in the state, Senator Ademola Adeleke challenged the declaration of Governor Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as governor.

The suit was filed following the decalaration of Governor Oyetola as winner of the state governorship election by the Court of Appeal on March 9, 2019.

Recall that the Court of Appeal had upturned the verdict of the State Election Petition Tribunal which had declared Senator Adeleke as the winner based on irregular composition of judges of the lower tribunal, where the judge who delivered the majority judgment, Justice Peter Obiorah, was absent in the proceedings of the lower court, affected the right of the appellant to fair hearing.

The five member panel of justices, which was presided by Justice Jummai Sankey, also upheld 10 out of the 12 issues raised by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the APC that the lower tribunal lacked the jurisdiction to entertain some of the grounds of the petition brought by Adeleke over the September 22, 2018 governorship election.

It held that having ruled that the claims of over-voting and voiding of valid votes were unproven by the tribunal in the 17 polling units out of 3,010 polling units in the state, the non-compliance was not substantial to proceed to compute and deduct votes.

However, Adeleke and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rejected the verdict and proceeded to the Apex Court urging it to set aside the decision of the Court of Appeal which was in favour of Oyetola of the APC.

Adeleke also contended that the Court of Appeal erred in law when it upheld the appeals by APC and INEC, challenging the decision of the tribunal.

“Something like simple party primary elections, some parties are not able to hold it properly, and things like violence, vote snatching, or even the lackadaisical attitude of the electorates, all these things are left for the parties to properly campaign among the electorates, to raise consciousness amongst the electorates, to come out and vote.”
