A close aide of the union leader made it known that MC Oluomo would travel any time soon as plans had been concluded for his treatment by a specialist in the United States where he is a citizen. The aide said:

“He was stabbed in the neck and by the side with what they call makanje (poisoned knife). He is a citizen of the United States, so there cannot be any problem with his medical treatment abroad. In fact, he will be flown out in a few days for better medical care. Contrary to what they are saying, Baba (MC Oluomo) is not dead.”

No fewer than three police vans were keeping guard at the hospital – Eko Hospital – where the patient is being treated.

Politicians of different calibre were said to have visited the hospital, as security operatives screen everyone going in to see him.

MC Oluomo was among the people injured at the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress campaign at the Sky Power Ground, Ikeja, on Tuesday.

Three journalists also sustained gunshot injuries as rival factions of the NURTW had clashed at the event.

MC Oluomo was allegedly stabbed in the neck and side with a knife.

The spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Chike Oti, said,

“A total 16 suspects have now been arrested in connection with the clash. The police are not aware of any treatment abroad; such is a private arrangement. It has nothing to do with us.”
