Labour Party dismisses Abure’s purported arrest, blames Apapa faction


The Labour Party (LP) has dismissed a video of the purported arrest of its National Chairman, Comrade Julius Abure.

The leadership said the video was being circulated by “renegade former members” led by Lamidi Apapa, a former acting chairman.

A statement on Friday by National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh said the clip was published by a former youth leader, Anselem Eragbe.

It showed police officers arguing among themselves over an issue, but neither Abure nor any party leader appeared.

Ifoh informed the public that security agencies have no reason whatsoever to seek the arrest of the LP chairman.

If they need his attention, they will do so through his security details or send an invitation, the spokesperson noted.

Ifoh said Abure attended the court session today at the Presidential Election Tribunal and has been attending official engagements.

“We ask Nigerians to disregard yet another attempt by these renegades to smear the character of our distinguished chairman.

“Nigerians must by now know the capacity of the Apapa group to misinform and propagate fake news,” the statement added.
