Gunshots, pandemonium as APC flags off campaign in Lagos; MC Oluomo stabbed
Hoodlums take over, unleash mayhem during the campaign
There were gunshots and pandemonium on Tuesday as the All Progressives
Congress, APC, flagged of campaign in Lagos for its governorship candidate,
Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other party flag-bearers in the state.
Popular area father, MC Oluomo was said to have been stabbed in the
skirmish that occurred at the campaign ground.
The campaign was held at the Sky Power Ground, Oba Akinjobi Road ,
Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.
Everything was going on well when a gunshot was heard at the podium where
Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Anifowoshe, popularly known as ‘K1 De Ultimate’
was performing and thrilling the audience.
Sources said there was a skirmish between supporters of MC Oluomo and
other transport unions, as series of gunshots rent the air, causing pandemonium
at the Sky Power Ground.
PM News gathered that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode was addressing the
crowd when the first gunshot was heard, sending panic among the crowd.
Ambode was said to have told the crowd that the police were in control of the
situation, but things got worse as series of gunshots were heard.

had wanted to. He only rushed the vote of thanks and dispersed the meeting.

ran helter and skelter to for their lives.
In the milieu that occurred, several people were stabbed and injured.
