We Are Aware Of Peter Obi and Abure’s Ability To Alter With Court Judgment, Says LP Chairmanship – Responds Apapa Faction

Once a Court of Appeal upheld Julius Abure as Labour Party (LP) National Chairman, the Lamidi Apapa group responded.

The Court of Appeal in Benin City, Edo State capital, dismissed Lucky Shaibu’s complaint against Abure and five others.

Apapa’s group stated it knows the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and Abure may interfere with the court verdict.

Abayomi Arabambi, the LP faction spokesperson, said that the Abuja High Court restraining order recognising Apapa as interim national chairman remained in effect.

Arabambi added, “Some criminal elements loyal to the police-indicted former National Chairman of Labour Party Mr Julius Abure, have been peddling erroneous information.” Labour Party desires to say explicitly that our complaint in the appeal filed before the court concerned his suspension as a member under Article 19(2)A of our party constitution, which the three judges did not take cognisance of and declined to make conclusions on.

“We are aware of the capacity of Peter Obi and Abure Julius to tamper with court proceedings and documents as evidence in the forgery perpetrated in Abuja FCT high court where the signature and seal of judges were forged by Abure Julius and which he boasted yesterday in Lagos with Peter Obi that nobody in Nigeria can probe or arraign him and three others indicted by the police.

“Surprisingly, the same Abure has a pending Supreme Court appeal against this same group of judges, which has been filed and served on us to arrest today’s verdict. Abure used his trademark to hire corrupt Edo State High Court officials to tamper with the transferred documents, knowing it may be illegal. We don’t know whether Abure can get away with wrongdoing as Edo State’s Chief Judge.

“The alleged missing document is in the forwarded copy with our lawyer and correctly paid for, but regrettably, this solitary criminal conduct that assisted Julius Abure today at the court of appeal was the reason the three judges base their verdict on suspending Julius Abure.”
