MC Oluomo stabbed in the Neck at APC rally in Lagos

Popular National Union Road Transport Workers leader MC Oluomo has been stabbed in Lagos.

He was stabbed in the neck during the flag-off of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign in Lagos on Tuesday.

Hoodlums, suspected to be members of the NURTW, invaded the Skypower Ground Ikeja venue of the rally with guns, daggers and other dangerous weapons, and engaged one another in a bloody factional fight.

The situation sent panic across the campaign ground as party members ran in different directions to avoid being hit by bullets being fired.

It was learned that security operatives had a hectic time controlling the situation and engaging the hoodlums.

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode, who was making a speech, had to leave the stage abruptly and was escorted out of the venue with his deputy, Idiat Adebule, the APC governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwoolu, and other prominent members of the party.

At least two persons were feared killed, while several others, including journalists, sustained different degree of injuries.

MC Oluomo was rushed to an undisclosed hospital by his boys after being stabbed in 5 different places by some thugs linked to a certain man identified as Agbede.
