The daughter of Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya well known as MC Oluomo, has refuted claims that her father is dead.
The lady whose name is Aduke has seriously gone against the rumour going around especially in the social media that her father is dead.
There are fears among members of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) as health condition of one of the prominent members Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, worsened after he was brutally stabbed during the governorship campaign of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Lagos.
To safe his life, insider says Lagos State government are working with family of the NURTW leader to fly him abroad for sound medical attention.
A close aide of the union leader was quoted by The Punch as saying MC Oluomo would travel any time soon as plans had been concluded for his treatment by a specialist in the United States where he is a citizen.
This is just as our correspondent gathered that no fewer than three police vans were keeping guard at the hospital – Eko Hospital – where the patient is being treated.
Politicians of different calibre were said to have visited the hospital, as security operatives screen everyone going in to see him.
MC Oluomo was among the people injured at the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress campaign at the Sky Power Ground, Ikeja, on Tuesday.
Three journalists also sustained gunshot injuries. Rival factions of the NURTW had clashed at the event. MC Oluomo was allegedly stabbed in the neck and side with a knife.
The aide said, “He was stabbed in the neck and by the side with what they call makanje (poisoned knife). He is a citizen of the United States, so there cannot be any problem with his medical treatment abroad. In fact, he will be flown out in a few days for better medical care. Contrary to what they are saying, Baba (MC Oluomo) is not dead.”
A source at the hospital said, “Top politicians have been coming to see him. The level of security is high. Three police vans are here.”
