Labour Party Chairman's House in Abuja Destroyed by Fire

The Labour Party (LP) announced that the home of its National Chairman, Julius Abure, caught fire on Wednesday, April 3. According to LP, the incident occurred around 1 am while Abure and his family were sleeping. Additionally, the party claimed there was an assassination attempt on Abure during the incident. Obiora Ifoh, the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, provided this information.

The statement quoted a member of the family who narrated the incident, saying the family was woken up by neighbours and security men living in the compound.

The statement reads

“The entire family was 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.”
