LP chairman, Julius Abure was arrested on a written petition in a case of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit dangerous harm - Spokesperson for the Nigeria Police Force Zone 5, Tijani Momoh.

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has said a short gun and three rounds of live ammunition were recovered from the Labour Party National Chairman, Julius Abure, during his arrest on Wednesday, February 21, 2024.

The NPF Force Zone 5 spokesperson, Tijani Momoh, disclosed this to newsmen while confirming the arrest of the embattled politician in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

Momoh said Abure and four other suspects were arrested over a petition written against them by a petitioner whose name he kept under wraps.

“I wish to confirm the arrest of the factional chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure and four others.

It has to do with a written petition that was endorsed by the AIG Zone 5 from the office of the Inspector General of Police,” the force spokesman stated.

Revealing the details of the petition, Momoh said the Labour Party chairman was accused of attempted murder, conspiracy to dangerous harm and other related offences, adding that investigations are ongoing to unravel the case.

"He was also in possession of a firearm; I think a short gun and three rounds of live ammunition. So, investigation is ongoing. We just arrested him today. More details will be provided as the investigation continues," he disclosed.

There was a video of the arrest showing the politician sitting on the floor suggesting that the police were assaulting him.

Momoh denied the allegation, explaining that Abure was only asked to sit on the ground after some people attached to him tried to prevent the police from carrying out the arrest.

Oh, its no longer N3 billion? I am beginning to think that these are trumped-up charges.

If our police are this proactive thousands of Nigerians wouldn't still be in captivity as we speak. We all know the reason behind this unlawful arrest of LP chairman. The embattled president of Nigeria is drawing up another problem to his government if as rumoured he has a hand in this mess. He should not forget that Nigerians currently are up in arms against him. Edo people are die hard OBIDIENTS. You can't intimidate them into voting for APC in the forthcoming governor ship election in Edo state.
