The Lamidi Apapa faction of the Labour Party, LP, has accused the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi of siphoning $15 million and N12 billion meant for his campaign.
The faction alleged that Obi used the money to help an embattled Chairman of the party Julius Abure and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
This was disclosed in a statement by the spokesman of Apapa’s faction, Abayomi Arabambi.
The statement reads partly: “Our previous position has now been confirmed that Peter Obi was just all out to defraud our party of donations made towards 2023 general election which was in a scary sum of $15 million and N12 billion that Peter Obi deliberately used for the cure of Abure’s poverty lineage and help other Julius Abure IPOB irresponsible ethnic irredeemable irredentist supporters to have a lifeline.
“Peter Obi fraudulently converted all monies due to our agents across the country and they all refused to represent the party at all pooling units.”
