Lagos Deputy Gov. Throws MC Oluomo Under The Bus, Says He Must Pay If Found Guilty

Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, has said the Chairman of the Lagos Parks Management Committee, Musiliu Akinsanya (MC Oluomo) must face the full wrath of the law, if he’s found guilty of the allegations levelled against him.

Recall that MC Oluomo has been under massive fire for his actions during the course of the gubernatorial elections, where he was captured issuing threats to Igbo voters, in what the parks’ manager later tagged as a joke at his sister.

Reacting to the development during his appearance on a Channels Television programme, ‘Sunrise Daily,’ today March 28, 2023, the Deputy governor said anyone found to have committed any atrocity during the last elections should be made to pay for it.

Mr Hamzat who erred on the side of caution said he was not calling for the arrest of anybody, he said all the facts should be examined and MC Oluomo should be made to pay if found guilty of breaking the law.

His words reads: “Well, I am not calling for the arrest of anybody, I am not a police officer, I am not a prosecutor, but people will look at the evidence.

“And in the case of MC Oluomo, he has actually come out to say that he was referring to a woman, who also come out to say that she has known MC Oluomo for years and that he was referring to her, so I don’t know the facts. But people should examine the facts and if in truth he has broken the law, he must pay for it.

“But my point which I want to make is that we all diminish this country when we actually exaggerate what happens. We have an election where you have this number of polling units and you have less than 1 per cent that have a problem and we now make it look like that 1 per cent is more important than the 99 per cent.

“I think that it is just outrageous and we should not diminish our country by saying the election is bad. No, this was a great election. Atrocities were committed and people should pay for that.”
