The camp of a chieftain of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya aka Mc Oluomo, has denied any link in the gruesome murder of another top member of the union, Rasaq Bello aka Hamburger on Monday, in Oshodi during councillorship primaries of All Progressive Congress, APC.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the camp claimed that as at the time of the primaries in the Shogunle area of Lagos during the local council primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that led to the death of Hamburger, MC Oluomo was away in the USA where he has been for some months now.
The statement reads, “Aside being out of town, several times before now, he has sponsored advertorials both in the local newspapers and radio on the need to maintain law and order before and during the electioneering period based on what the national leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu discussed with him and some other stakeholders.
“It is an unnecessary rumour bent on causing undue rivalry and public disorder among people who had no history of rancor between each other. The general public is hereby advised to discard such damaging rumour because MC OLuomo abhors violence of any form not to talk of taking a life.”
Unconfirmed reports have it that Hamburger was hit by a stray bullet from the police who were drafted to restore peace to the area before he died.
