Police declare NURTW worker, Mustapha Seigo, wanted for attempting to disrupt APC rally

The Lagos State Police Command has
declared a chieftain of the National Union of
Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Mustapha
Adekunle aka Seigo, wanted over the violence
that erupted at the APC governorship rally in
Lagos state on Tuesday January 8th.
A statement by the state police spokesman
Chike Oti, says Mustapha Seigo, came to the
rally with a group of people and were
identified at the entrance as supporters of the
party.
“However, at the tail end of the event,
Seigo and his group for a reason yet
to be determined, violently engaged
other supporters of the party. In the
ensuing melee, one MC Oluomo,
another NURTW chieftain, was stabbed
and was rushed to EKO Hospital
where he is currently recuperating
while two other victims of the attack
were taken to the Lagos State
University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH)
for treatment. The crisis was quickly
contained by policemen at the venue.”
Oti stated
It will be recalled that a few hours before the
rally started, the Commissioner of Police
Imohimi Edgal held a meeting with the leaders
of the NURTW and the Road Transport
Employers Association (RTEAN) and other
affiliate groups where all the parties agreed to
eschew violence before, during and after the
electioneering.
“It was therefore surprising that a
prominent member of NURTW would
attempt to violently disrupt a peaceful
political rally. In view of the
development, the Command wishes to
encourage members of the public with
useful information on the whereabouts
of Mustapha Adekunle popularly known
as Seigo to report such at the
nearest police station,” he said
Oti said two persons have been arrested in
connection with the incident.
