The Lagos State police command has promised to investigate and prosecute the chairman of Lagos State Parks and Gardens Management Agency, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as “MC Oluomo” if he is found guilty of inciting hate against Igbo voters in Lagos.

This was disclosed by the command’s Police Public  Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Bejamin Hundeyin in his response to a viral video in which the LASPARK boss was seen threatening Igbo voters to leave the polling centre or be ready to vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

SP Benjamin Hundeyin condemned the act and said an investigation will be launched to ascertain the veracity of the video clip.

He said: “While the video will be investigated to know if it’s an old, recycled one or not, it should be noted that this is criminal and totally against the Electoral Act, 2022.

In a similar development, a suspected APC thug was seen in a different video clip threatening intending voters at a polling unit to either vote for the APC or go back to their houses. He threatened to deal decisively with anyone who does otherwise.

The man said, “if you are not  going to vote for Tinubu, go home”, he was seen warning an astounded group of elderly men who had waited for hours before the arrival of electoral officials.

The Lagos PPRO has denounced the acts and promised to commence investigations into the cases.

“This is criminal and against the Electoral Act, 2022, investigations will be launched into it soon,” he said.

It will be recalled that similar incidents recorded in Okota area of Lagos when some polling units were reportedly attacked due to Igbo residents voting for other opposition parties. Incidently, no one has been publicly prosecuted nor jailed for such brazen acts of criminality.
