The factional National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) Lamidi Apapa has alleged the crowd that mobbed him on Wednesday at the venue of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) was hired to kill him.
The embattled National Chairman of the Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa said the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi and the party’s suspended National Chairman, Julius Abure allegedly sponsored thugs against him (Apapa) at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, venue of the Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC.
Apapa also alleged that the crowd that mobbed him on Wednesday at the venue of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) was hired to kill him.
Citymirror news Online had earlier report that Apapa was mobbed by some angry youths who were at the court to witness proceedings in the petition that Obi filed to challenge the outcome of the presidential election that held on February 25.
Speaking on the development, with Vanguard on Wednesday, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Abayomi Arabambi, said he surprised this was how Obi, Abure and their supporters intended to come at them.
He said, “They attacked some police. They were fighting with press men. It was the security operatives that saved us. They came there to kill today (Wednesday) and we will definitely petition the police.”
When asked to provide evidence, Arabambi said, “We have the video now, the man that removed the cap of Apapa we know him. We know them. We know all of them.
“We were together in the court when they started attacking us. Are they not Obidients, are they not shouting Obidients, shouting: Thief Thief on us!”
“It shows that character of who that man is. He can not even govern a local government,” he added.
The spokesperson of the Labour Party, has, however, insisted that they will petition the Inspector General of Police over the incident
