UPDATE: Lagos Tricycle Owners Chairman, Abiola Regains Freedom


…Accuses MC Oluomo Of Planning To Assassinate Him

Lagos State Chairman of Tricycle Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria (TOOAN), Alhaji Azeez Abiola has regained his freedom.

He was arrested on Thursday by the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the State Police Command.

The four arrested members of TOOAN had been released as well.

WesternPost had reported that Abiola was arrested by RRS with four other members of TOOAN at the state headquarters of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Agege.

They had gone there for an emergency meeting summoned by the state Chairman of NURTW, Musiliu Akinsanya (MC Oluomo) to discuss the latest development in the union regarding the appointment of Abiola as TOOAN Lagos Chairman by the national leadership of NUTRW.

Narrating his ordeal in a trending video obtained by WesternPost, Abiola accused MC Oluomo of masterminding a failed assassination attempt on him.

Explaining further, he said a day after his emergence as state chairman of TOOAN, he was invited to an emergency meeting at the NURTW headquarters in Agege, and that while he was filling the attendance form, some NURTW officials supervised by MC Oluomo swooped on him and started hitting him.

He said he narrowly escaped to his car and locked the door while he heard one of them saying the car should be burnt down with him inside, but another person advised against it.

He said while the touts were contemplating on what to do to him, the RRS officers got to the scene, and his car was thoroughly searched without any gun being recovered from it.

The TOOAN chairman said he was later taken to RRS headquarters in Alausa, after which he claimed that an officer brought a gun and said it was recovered within the area of the incident.

He accused MC Oluomo of moving against him for emerging as TOOAN chairman, accusing Oluomo of desiring to control the association.
