#2023Decides: Circulating Clip Claiming That Mc Oluomo Stopped Igbo From Voting in Lagos is Not True

Afeez Rabiu

Claim

Multiple reports claim that thugs are disrupting the voting exercise in Fehintola Giwa Street in Aguda Surulere Lagos if the Igbos don’t vote for the candidate of the All Progressive Congress. These reports also claimed that the act is sponsored by Musiliu Akinsanya (MC Oluomo), a supporter of Bola Tinubu of APC and Chairman, Lagos State Parks and Garages Management Committee. 

Verification

FactcheckElections can confirm through eye witness report from one of the Observers on-ground that the incident happened but Mc Oluomo was not the one that gave the order. 

Our source confirmed that the thug has been around since the voting exercise started. As at press time, he has left and voting has continued in the polling unit. 

Conclusion

False! Our independent findings shows that while the thug was truly giving the order that voters not voting the APC candidate leave the voting premises, there is no substantial evidence to show that MC Oluomo gave the order.
