LP Chairman Abure Escapes Assassination, Party Says After Fire Engulfs Abuja Home 

Labour Party says a mysterious fire engulfed Julius Abure’s Abuja residence while he and his family were asleep.

The Labour Party (LP) reports that its national chairman, Julius Abure, has escaped an assassination attempt.

The national publicity secretary of the LP, Obiora Ifoh in a statement said that Abure’s Abuja home was “gutted by a mysterious fire” at 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

The statement read, “The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Barrister Julius Abure early this morning allegedly escaped an assassination attempt on him at his Abuja residence”.

“His residence was also gutted by a mysterious fire which started a few minutes after 1 a.m. while Abure and the members of his family were asleep.

According to a member of the family who narrated the incidence, 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 neighbors 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.”

According to Ifoh, Abure and his family were rushed to a private hospital for treatment.
