In a statement signed by the Publicity secretary of Labour Party, Mr Obiora Ifoh, the party, has urged the general public to disregared the video trending online depicting the arrest of the national chairman, Julius Abure.
In a statement issued on Friday, the Party scribe described the video being broadcast by renegade former members of the Party led by Lamidi Apapa where they claimed that the National Chairman, Barrister Julius Abure was arrested as fake.
The 10 second video published by the former Youth Leader of the party, Anselem Eragbe contains images of Police officers who were arguing among themselves over an unexplained matter. Neither Abure nor any of our leaders appeared on the video.
The security agencies are 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 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. The publicity Secretary said.
