The Labour Party (LP), said the video in circulation of the arrest of its National Chairman Julius Abure by law enforcement agencies, is fake.
LP in a statement by the acting National Publicity Secretary Obiora Ifoh, accused some expelled members of the party led by Lamidi Apapa, of misinforming the public.
“Neither Abure nor any of our leaders appeared on the video,” the statement added, noting that the video contains images of police officers who were arguing among themselves over an unexplained matter.
The party clarified that security agencies were not after Abure and have no reason whatsoever to seek for his arrest.
“If they need his attention, they will invite him personally or even through his several security details.
“For the record, Abure attended the court session today (Friday) at the ongoing Presidential Appeal Tribunal and he is presently attending to some official engagements.
“Nigerians must by now know the capacity of the Apapa group to misinform and propagate fake news.
“We therefore ask Nigerians to disregard yet another attempt by these renegades to smear the character of our distinguished chairman,” LP advised.
