MC Oluomo Denies Involvement In Hamburger’s Death
Musiliu Akinsanya, Treasurer of the National Union of Road Transporter Workers (NURTW) has denied any involvement in the gruesome murder of another top member of the union, Rasaq Bello, popularly called Hamburger.
Akinsanya, who is popularly known as MC Oluomo, in his defense said it was rather painful that the death of Hamburger, whom he had no prior problem with, could be linked to him.
Hamburger was murdered on Monday after a fight broke out in Shogunle, few minutes after the botched All Progressives Congress LG Primaries.
Media reports suggested that Hamburger’s murder was as a result of his support for a particular Councillorship candidate in his ward. Reports had it that he was attacked by supporters of the rival candidate.
But investigations later revealed that Hamburger’s death had little or nothing to do with the APC local council primaries.
It was gathered that his problems with some elements within the National Union of Road Transport Workers ( NURTW) was the actual cause of his death. His death according to findings predated the APC local government primaries and the events of May 29.
A source within the union told Bounce News that some powerful members of the NURTW in the zone were not comfortable with the soaring popularity of Hamburger.
In addition, the source said “Hamburger was seen as a threat to some kingpins within the NURTW in the state as the Chairman of Motorcycle Operators Association. His recent chieftain status alongside his influence politically made by him a target for election violence.”
Samson Agbetoye popularly called Golden,who is a well-known protegee of MC Oluomo, was alleged to have shot dead Hamburger in the interest of his master.
But MC Oluomo on Tuesday came out to deny any involvement in the death of Hamburger.
He said he was away in the United States as at the time of the primaries that led to the death of Bello.
He said aside being out of town, he had on several occasions before the incident, sponsored advertorials both in the local newspapers and radio on the need to maintain law and order before and during the electioneering period based on what the national leader, Bola Tinubu discussed with him and some other stakeholders.
He noted that it was unfortunate that some people are trying to link his name to the death of Hamburger.
He added that he supports the law in finding out and giving the necessary judgment to whosoever is found wanting in the death of Hamburger.
