The Bashiru Lamidi Apapa section of the party, which invaded the Presidential Election Petition Court on Wednesday morning, allegedly left the premises in embarrassment, according to the Labour Party.
During the court hearing, there was fighting between Apapa and the supporters of Mr. Julius Abure, the party’s temporarily suspended national chairman.
The two groups vying for control of the party’s national leadership were denied recognition by the court.
The party asserted in a tweet posted on its Twitter account that the Apapa faction was present in court to shorten the session.
The tweet reads, “Rebel former Deputy National Chairman of Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa, made good on his threat to dissolve the Presidential Election Tribunal by seeking to attend at the current hearing as a representative of the @NgLabour but was rejected by the Tribunal. He was completely humiliated.
