LP alleges assassination attempt on Abure

The Labour Party (LP) has said that its National Chairman, Barrister Julius Abure, early Wednesday, allegedly escaped assassination attempt on him at his Abuja residence.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh, said Abure’s residence was also gutted by a mysterious fire which started a few minutes after 1am while Abure and the members of his family were asleep.

The statement noted that “a member of the family who narrated the incidence, said “the family was woken up by neighbours and security men living in the compound who raised the alarm.

‘The entire family were trapped as the inferno had reached the staircase making it impossible for Abure and family to escape. 

“However, it took divine intervention for the national chairman and his family to escape after neighbours and security men gallantly pulled down one of the windows upstairs making ways for the family to escape.

“Men of the Fire Service arrived shortly after Abure and his family were evacuated.

“Abure and his family were rushed to a private hospital where they are presently receiving treatment. Their condition is however stable.”
