Apapa takes back seat in court

The factional National Chairman of the Labour Party Lamidi Apapa on Friday sat at the back of the court during the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

Apapa was booed and mobbed by angry mob at the venue of the PEPC on Wednesday.

Apapa told reporters that he was in court that Wednesday to assert himself as the Acting National Chairman of the party.

On how he was mobbed, Apapa, said: “They pounced on me, removed my cap and I am very sure that if not that you people (journalists) were there, I would have been dead by now.”

He alleged Obi was aware he would be attacked, stating that members of the presidential campaign group of the party in a meeting on Tuesday to broker peace among the warring factions, vowed to deal with him should he attend the court session.

Apapa in an interview after the incident said he refused to be intimidated by the mob action and vowed to be present in court today.

Keeping to his words, the factional chairman arrived in court room and decided to sit at the back of the courtroom, not in the area reserved for Labour Party officials.
