0 47

The Labour Party, on Wednesday, said that the house of its national chairman, Julius Abure, was gutted by fire in the early hours of the day.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, made this known in a statement on Wednesday.

He also claimed it was an assassination attempt on the chairman.

The statement read, “His residence was gutted by a mysterious fire which started a few minutes after 1am while Abure and members of his family were asleep.

“According to a member of the family who narrated the incident, 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 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.”
