EndSARS protesters at the Lagos State House of Assembly have rejected food and soft drinks donated by the chairman of the National Union of the Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the state Musiliu Akinsanya alias MC Oluomo.
The protesters turned down the items on Friday following an attack on them by armed men suspected to be from the NURTW boss in Alausa on Thursday.
MC Oluomo had released a video on Instagram where he denied sponsoring the attack.
“I Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo) know nothing about the allegations that trend on social media that I sponsored attacks on #EndSARS protesters at Alausa today 15th October 2020,” he captioned the video.
“I wondered why people will link the event in Alausa with me. I was surprised when my aides brought it to my attention what people were tweeting on the issue. I couldn’t have been involved in such act because I support the quest to reform the police force.
“How will I do such when my brothers and sisters are among the protesters? In fact this act is disgusting.
“No sane member of the union will join people to attack the protesters because it is for the good of everybody.”
