Police report indicted Abure, says Ex-NLC President

Ayuba Wabba, former president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has said that the national chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, has been indicted by a police report.

Ayuba Wabba stated this during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.

The crisis rocking the Labour Party (LP) worsened on Wednesday as members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) picketed the national headquarters of the party in Abuja.

But during the interview Wabba said the report indicting Abure was submitted to him even before he left office.

He added that Abure was hiding from the police to evade prosecution.

Wabba said, “Police have done a full investigation. He (Abure) has been indicted. There is a full report and it was forwarded to me even before I left office. We have asked police to prosecute him. We know he has been hiding from the police.

“The basic fact is that it has been established that there is a fraudulent act within the Labour Party. Police have carried out an in-depth investigation. He has been indicted. The report has been forwarded to me and I handed it to the colleague, who took over from me.

“There is a delay because the report is with the police. The power to prosecute is in the police. I think the process is ongoing. I read about a blackmail that the police trying to politicize the issue.

“But the fact is that there was a committee and it has been established. We allow the police to do their work.”
