The national chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, has raised the alarm over an invasion of the party's headquarters in Abuja.
In a video seen by Legit.ng, Abure said the headquarters of the party in the Utako area of Abuja, Nigeria's capital city, was under attack.
He also alleged that some unknown individuals had broken the doors of the party's office.
Noting that those who have invaded the party's headquarters are purportedly holding a meeting, Abure said the meeting was not authorised by him, the national chairman or the Labour Party's National Working Committee.

"Now the Labour Party office is under attack, all the doors at the national headquarters have been broken. And they have entered the office, purportedly trying to hold a meeting in the office.
"That meeting is not authorised by me, it is not authorised by the National Working Committee. The Labour Party is under serious attack, personally and individually because of the case we have against the APC in court.
"All of the blackmail, all of this attack is tailored towards destroying the mandate that has been given to us by Nigerians. Nigerians must rise to the occasion and save the Labour Party."
