LP Chairman, Lamidi Apapa And Peter Obi’s Campaign DG Clashes In Court [Video]
Lamidi Apapa, the factional national chairman of the Labour Party (LP), clashed with the Director General of Peter Obi’s presidential campaign council, Akin Osuntokun, at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja.
In a video circulating on social media, Lamidi Apapa could be seen engaging in a heated confrontation with Akin Osuntokun on Wednesday over a seat reserved for the Labour Party in the court.
Tensions escalated as the two politicians came face-to-face, leading to a verbal exchange characterized by heated arguments before the proceedings related to the ongoing presidential election petition against the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
While the specific cause of the confrontation was linked to seats reserved by members of the party, it is suspected that the disagreement arose from Apapa’s attempt to take over leadership of the party since the presidential election was concluded.
As news of the confrontation continues to spreads, it is expected to generate considerable attention within political circles as stakeholders closely follow the developments to ascertain the impact of the incident on the overall proceedings at the Presidential Election Petition Court.
