The reason Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), was arrested by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has been made known.

TORI earlier reported that Abure was arrested on Wednesday by the Police in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

It was gathered that the LP chairman was apprehended over allegations of premeditated attempted murder and alleged financial infractions, amongst others.

According to Arise News, Abure was arrested following a petition written by the party’s former Youth Leader, Eragbe Anselm Aphimia, to the Police.

Abure’s arrest comes just a day before the party’s primary election in Edo state. Party officials are yet to speak on the matter.

Recall that the embattled LP chairman had faced criticism after being accused of misappropriating Party funds totalling more than N3 billion.

The suspended National Treasurer of the party, Oluchi Opara, had accused Abure of misappropriating the sum of N3.5 billion generated from the sales of nomination forms and other activities ahead of the 2023 general election.

However, Abure denied the allegation, saying that only N1.5 billion was obtained from the sales of nomination forms.
