Protests in Kenya over amendment of election laws

#EndSARS protesters at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Ikeja, on Friday rejected food and soft drinks sent by the Chairman of the National Union of the Road Transport Workers in the state, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo.

The protesters rejected the items in reaction to an attack on some of them on by thugs at Ikeja, the state capital, on Thursday.

It had been alleged that MC Oluomo was behind the attacks, though his spokesman, Jimoh Buhari, refuted the allegation.

In an attempt to endear himself to the protesters, the NURTW boss sent food as well as soft drinks and water branded with his name to the youths.

The refreshments were conveyed in a white van to the Alausa area on Friday afternoon.

Some protesters, oblivious of the sender, collected the items and drank the drinks and water before one of them raised the alarm that the packs were branded with ‘Donated by MC Oluomo’.The awareness angered the protesters who pelted the van with empty plastic bottles, alleging that the NURTW boss had sent them “poison”.
