ANAMBRA: Labour Party governorship candidate Agbasimelo declared missing
THE Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in the state, Obiora Agbasimelo, has been declared missing.
The candidate’s disappearance has fuelled speculations that he has been kidnapped.
The emergence of Agbasimelo as LP’s governorship candidate in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra followed the crisis in the party.

The state police command has not issued an official statement on the matter.
