“Abure’s life under threat” – Labour Party raises alarm after fire razes party chair’s residence

The Labour Party (LP), on Wednesday, alleged that the life of the party’s national chairman, Julius Abure, is under threat.

This was the position of the party after an arson attack on the Abuja residence of Abure.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh, who made the allegation in a statement in Abuja, said that Abure escaped “an assassination attempt at his residence.”

According to him, “His (Abure’s) residence was also gutted by a mysterious fire which started a few minutes after 1 am while Abure and his family members were asleep.

“According to a family member who narrated the incident, the family was woken up by neighbours and security men living in the compound who raised the alarm.

“The entire family was trapped as the inferno reached the staircase, making it impossible for Abure and the 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 way 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.”
