The National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, has been implicated in another fraud case in Ebonyi State, just days after being arrested and released by the Police over alleged forgery in Plateau State.
A former LP chairman in Ebonyi State, Splendour Oko-Eze, filed a petition, claiming that Abure forged his signature in a document where he purportedly resigned as the LP governorship candidate for the 2023 elections in favour of another aspirant, Edward Nkwegu.
Nkwegu allegedly confirmed paying Abure N200 million to secure the Ebonyi State governorship ticket.
Following an investigation, the Force Federal Criminal Investigation Department recommended Abure’s prosecution for forgery to the Attorney General of the Federation.
Abure had earlier faced accusations of forging signatures in a similar case in Edo State.
Recall that Murphy Imasuen, an LP House of Representatives aspirant for Orhionmwon/Uhunmwonde federal constituency in the 2023 general election in Edo State, had accused Abure of forging his signature in similar circumstances.
