File case against MC Oluomo if you have evidence of attack – FPRO

Published

on

 

The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Tuesday, advised anyone with evidence against the Chairman of the Lagos State Parks and Garages Association, Musiliu Akinsaya, popularly known as Mc Oluomo, can file a case of attack against him.

He made this known in his response to a Twitter user, AjammaS, via his Twitter handle.

The tweep, AjammaS, claimed Adejobi and the police failed to protect voters during the election after he asked people to take MC Oluomo’s remark about Igbo in a viral video as a joke and assured them of safety during the election.

AjammaS wrote, “Sir, you are also guilty, if I may say. This is what you said in the TV interview, and I quote. ‘MC Oluomo threat is a joke, let’s take it as a joke until he perfected [sic] the threat. I urge everyone to go out and cast their votes.”

“Now Nigerians heed to your calls and went out to cast their votes and unfortunately you failed to protect them as you promised. They were attacked by MC Oluomo and his boys, some were murdered, brutalised, blinded, some are currently receiving treatment in different hospitals.”

Adejobi responded by asking the tweep to file an attack case against Oluomo if he had evidence of attacks against him, adding that Oluomo lacks immunity.

He said, “You can take the case of attack up with MC if you have a case or evidence of attacks against him. Many people and lawyers, even the deputy gov of Lagos, have said it severally. He has no immunity, so if you have a case of attack against him, take it up.”

“There is no need to pass judgement or do trial on Twitter. Very simple. Many of you just follow others to raise this issue on Twitter.”

The Force PRO had described the threat by MC Oluomo against Igbo as a joke when a video had surfaced online of MC Oluomo threatening Igbo in Lagos State against voting for another political party except for the All Progressives Congress in the state governorship election.

Oluomo said Igbo who would not vote for the APC should sit at home.

Reacting to the video on Channels TV, Adejobi said, “I saw a video of MC Oluomo with one Mama Chidinma – an Igbo woman – debunking that threat; that it’s not true, it’s just a joke he was making with a particular woman. So, let us take it as a joke, like he said.

“But, nobody has the right and audacity to tell Nigerians not to come out and vote; it’s not allowed and not proper. MC Oluomo has come out to debunk it, so let’s leave it that it’s not true. The Commissioner of Police in Lagos has debunked it and MC Oluomo himself has done the same, so Lagosians should go out and vote for the candidate of their choice.”

The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, had said that MC Oluomo, a staunch supporter of the APC, and the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, must pay if he is found guilty of breaking the law during the just-concluded elections in the state.

Although the deputy governor said he was not calling for the arrest of anybody, he said the facts should be examined and “if in truth he (MC Oluomo) has broken the law, he must pay for it.”

UPDATED: Sanusi reinstated as 16th Emir of Kano

Published

By

 

Abba Yusuf, Kano state Governor, on Friday reappointed Muhammadu Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano.

 

Sanusi received his letter of reinstatement at the Government House in Kano.

 

The governor said, “By the powers conferred on me by the Kano Emirate Council Law of 1984 and 2024, and supported by the recommendation of the kingmakers, I have the singular pleasure of confirming the reappointment of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano and the head of the Kano Emirate Council.”

 

Yusuf noted that Sanusi’s reappointment was “based on his competence, credibility, and popularity,” urging the new Kano Emir “to be guided by the principles of Islamic teachings and to use his position to unite the emirate, fostering harmony among the Islamic sects in the state.”

 

The 16th Emir of Kano, Sanusi II, had initially ruled as the 14th Emir.

 

The beginning of Sanusi’s travail dates back to 2020 when he had a fallout with the former governor and present National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje.

The Kano House of Assembly would later pass a bill to split the Kano Emirate Council, majorly under Sanusi’s control, into five emirates, thereby lowering his influence.

Afterwards, Sanusi was sacked and replaced by the recently deposed 15th Emir – Aminu Ado Bayero.

 

But the Assembly, on Thursday, May 23, 2024, dissolved all the five newly created emirate councils in the state – Bichi, Karaye, Gaya, Rano; including Kano, and passed the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 which replaced the Kano State Emirates Council Law, 2019.

 

The 2024 Bill gave the way to reinstate Sanusi.

 

In addition, the governor gave the five emirs a 48-hour ultimatum to vacate their official residences and palaces.

 

Reacting to this, the governor, while recalling past events during the turmoil, said Sanusi was victimised when he was dethroned as the emir, adding that his reinstatement is good for the people of the state.

“We had a series of meetings with the kingmakers yesterday, extensive discussions with the Speaker, and we also sat with all the heads of security. At the end of the day, we all gathered in the chamber where I received the bill that repealed the former law, and we signed the new law repealing all the appointments.

“We did that out of our convictions and belief that this gentleman was victimised in 2019. We all feel that we must restore what is due to the good people of the state.

 

“Let me use this opportunity to humbly thank the Speaker and all members of the House for your determination and respect for the rule of law. It shows your interest in the welfare of the people of the state,” Yusuf said.

 

Present at the event were traditional rulers, kingmakers, and other top dignitaries.

Sanusi Muhammadu Lamido, the reinstated Emir of Kano, has arrived at Kano State Government House to receive his letter of appointment prelude to resuming duty as the new emir.

 

The new first-class Emir of the state was honoured in a homecoming reception late Thursday.

 

Lamido is expected to be at the Africa House in Kano Government House for a mini-durbar ceremony by 10 a.m. today, from where he would proceed to the Nassarawa Emir’s palace.

 

From there, the Emir will lead the Muslim Jumat prayers (Friday) at the Kano Central mosque located at the palace in Kofar Kudu.

 

Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, on Thursday, reappointed Lamido as the Emir of Kano, four years after he was dethroned by a former governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje.

 

In addition, the governor deposed five emirs appointed by Ganduje and gave them a 48-hour ultimatum to vacate their official residences and palaces.

Yusuf also directed them to hand over all affairs to the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

 

However, the Federal High Court in Kano has issued an order stopping the Kano State Government from enforcing the Kano State Emirate Council Repeal Law.

 

Justice Mohammed Liman granted the order in an application by Alhaji Aminu Babba Dan Agundi, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba of the Kano Emirate.

 

In the lawsuit concerning the Emir’s seat, the respondents in the fundamental rights case are the Kano State Government, the House of Assembly, the Speaker, the Attorney-General, the Commissioner of Police, the Inspector-General of Police, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the State Security Service.
