A ward in the Edo State chapter of the Labour Party, LP has suspended the party's national chairman, Julius Abure, over allegations of anti-party activities.
The suspension comes one week after Senator Iyoricha Ayu, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was suspended by his ward in Benue State.
That action led to the eventual removal of Ayu as chairman of the PDP as a court ordered his removal based on the suspension.
At a press conference, Martins Osigbemhe, the Ward Chairman, said Abure was suspended by the executive, pending the determination of the numerous petitions and cases against him in courts.
The National Secretary of the party, Mallam Farouk Umar, has however dismissed the suspension as illegal.
