Court Barres Labour Party’s Chairman, Others From Parading As National Officers



Court Barres Labour Party’s Chairman, Others From Parading As National Officers

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, the National Secretary, Farouk Ibrahim, and two other people have been ordered not to pose as national officers of the party by a Federal High Court.

iexclusivenews reports that others stopped from parading themselves as national officers are the National Organising Secretary, Clement Ojukwu and the Treasurer, Oluchi Opara.

The restraining order was issued by Justice Hamza Muazu while making a decision on an ex-parte application that James Onoja argued for.

Onoja explained to the court in an application how the restrained National officers allegedly forged several FCT High Court documents to conduct illegal substitutions in the most recent general election.

The receipts, seal, and court-issued affidavits to engage in criminal activity were among the documents.

The Senior Counsel also submitted a number of documents, which the Judge used to confirm that the Chief Registrar of the Court had written to the Labour Party to request that it disown certain documents that Abure and three other people were allegedly using for illegal activity.

The four individuals will be arraigned in court following their indictment by a police investigation, says Onoja, who also notes that arrest warrants have already been obtained for them.

Justice Muazu made a succinct ruling, concluding that the application and the affidavits in support of it make a strong case for the request’s approval.

However, iexclusivenews Nigeria reports that the four individuals were then told by the judge to stop posing as Labour Party national officers right away.
