Stop the attack and intimidation of igbo voters, Tinubu warns Mc Oluomo and others

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has sounded serious warning to the leadership of the Lagos State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), to make sure that their members do not in anyway destabilise the peace of the state during the governorship and House of Assembly elections billed to take place on saturday.
He gave the warning during a meeting with the leadership of the union at a meeting in his Bourdillion, Ikoyi residence on Tuesday.

It was reported in the media that members of the union harassed Igbo traders especially in Mushin, Surulere and Oshodi areas of the state for allegedly voting against the APC during the elections while some of them engaged in ballot box snatching in areas alleged to be strongholds of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Tinubu, who expressed his displeasure over the rumoured attacks on non-indigenes in some parts of the state during and after the presidential and National Assembly elections by members of the union, said Igbo residents in Lagos are free to vote for any candidate of their choice during elections.
One of Tinubu’s aide, who was privy to the meeting said Tinubu who said elections should not cause disunity and war among Nigerians also warned the leaders of the union against incidents of ballot box snatching, intimidation and harassment of voters, saying anyone who engages in such acts will have himself to blame.
