The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, has issued an order restraining Julius Abure from serving as the National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP.

The court also ordered the National Secretary, National Treasurer, and National Organizing Secretary, Umar Farouk Ibrahim, Oluchi Opara, and Clement Ojukwu, respectively, to stop functioning in their capacities as well.

The order followed an ex-parte application by eight aggrieved members of the party, citing forgery, perjury, and criminal conspiracy against the suspended officials.

The plaintiffs are seeking the court’s determination on whether the suspension of the 1st Defendant, Abure, was in line with Article 13(10) (B) (ii) (iii) & (vi) and Article 19(1), B (1) (2) & (5) and 19 2 (A), (B)(2) (3) of the Labour Party Constitution 2009.

The plaintiffs also want the court to consider whether the 1st-4th Defendants, including Abure, have the legal and moral standing to function in office as officers of the 5th Defendant, the Labour Party, and not step aside following the prima facie case of forgery, perjury, and conspiracy established against them by the Commissioner of Police, F.C.T, and the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

Upon determination of these legal questions, the plaintiffs want the court to declare that Abure cannot continue to function as the National Chairman of the Labour Party, following his suspension by the Ward 03 Executive, Arue, Esan North East Local Government Area dated 31st March 2023.

They also want a declaration that the 1st – 4th Defendants lack the moral and legal standing to continue to function in office as National Chairman, National Secretary, National Treasurer, and National Organizing Secretary of the 5th Defendant, having been indicted upon established prima facie case by the Commissioner of Police, F.C.T, and the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The plaintiffs are also seeking an order directing the 1st – 4th Defendants to vacate office as the National Chairman, National Secretary, National Treasurer, and National Organizing Secretary of the 5th Defendant.

They want the National Executive Committee and the National Working Committee of the 5th Defendant to appoint interim National Chairman, National Secretary, National Treasurer, and National Organizing Secretary for the 5th Defendant pending the convention of the party for such a purpose.

The plaintiffs also want an order of perpetual injunction restraining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Defendants from parading themselves as the National Chairman, National Secretary, National Treasurer, and National Organizing Secretary, respectively, of the 5th Defendant.
