Reason For Arresting Labour Party Chairman – Police



Reasons behind the arrest of Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has been disclosed.

It could be recalled that the arrest of Abure on Wednesday by the Police in Benin City, the Edo State capital was in the news.

However, it was revealed that Abure’s apprehension is linked to allegations of premeditated attempted murder and financial infractions, among other charges.

The arrest followed a petition submitted by the party’s former Youth Leader, Eragbe Anselm Aphimia.

……This development comes just a day before the party’s primary election in Edo State, with party officials yet to comment on the matter.

____The LP Chairman had previously faced criticism amid accusations of misappropriating party funds exceeding N3 billion.

Meanwhile, the suspended National Treasurer, Oluchi Opara, had earlier accused Abure of misusing N3.5 billion generated from the sales of nomination forms and other activities ahead of the 2023 general election.

In response to the allegation, Abure denied the claim, stating that only N1.5 billion was obtained from the sales of nomination forms.

At the time of filing this report, the arrested Abure was still at the police custody.
