The Nigerian police force has declared Mustapha Seigo wanted after NURTW boss MC Oluomo was stabbed at the Lagos APC Governorship rally yesterday in a catastrophic event.
After the aftermath of the incident and further investigation Lagos State Police Command declared the chieftain of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Mustapha Adekunle aka Seigo, wanted over the violence that erupted at the APC governorship rally in Lagos state which left many wounded.
A recent statement by the state police spokesman Chike Oti, revealed that Mustapha Seigo, came to the rally with a group of people and were identified at the entrance as supporters of the party but quickly made visible dangerous weapons like guns, daggers e.t.c as bullets flew indiscriminately hitting innocent citizens.
“However, at the tail end of the event, Seigo and his group for a reason yet to be determined, violently engaged other supporters of the party. In the ensuing melee, one MC Oluomo, another NURTW chieftain, was stabbed and was rushed to EKO Hospital where he is currently recuperating while two other victims of the attack were taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) for treatment. The crisis was quickly contained by policemen at the venue.” Oti stated
Also it will be remembered that a few hours before the rally started, the Commissioner of Police Imohimi Edgal held a meeting with the leaders of the NURTW and the Road Transport Employers Association (RTEAN) and other associate groups where all the parties agreed to avoid violence before, during and after the electioneering.
“It was therefore surprising that a prominent member of NURTW would attempt to violently disrupt a peaceful political rally. In view of the development, the Command wishes to encourage members of the public with useful information on the whereabouts of Mustapha Adekunle popularly known as Seigo to report such at the nearest police station,” he said
According to reports reaching us 2 persons have been arrested in linking with the incident that occurred yesterday.
