The Lagos State Task Force has debunked reports in some quarters that chieftain of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo has died.
Akinsanya was stabbed during the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign flag-off in Lagos on Tuesday.
He was subsequently rushed to Eko Hospital, Ikeja, prompting fears that he might have passed on.
There were fears of reprisal attacks especially around the Oshodi area of Lagos where MC Oluomo commands followership.
A release by LSTF on Thursday, however, said he was responding to medical treatment at hospital.
“For any avoidance of doubt members of his family could be contacted for further information.
“The agency therefore warned miscreants and hoodlums who might want use this opportunity to foment any trouble to immediately desist as anybody caught disturbing peace of innocent members of the public would be seriously dealt with.
“Parents and guardians are hereby enjoined to be vigilant about activities of their wards as both the Lagos State Police Command and the operatives of the Lagos State Task Force are on ground patrolling,” the statement concluded.
