The factional leader of the Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa, was on Wednesday booed outside the Appeal Court in Abuja, the venue for the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
The opposing LP faction outside the court was screaming, ‘Ole’ (loosely translated as a thief), ‘Imposter’ etc., as Apapa’s supporters led him away from them.
This was as the party factions clashed and tried to attack Apapa, who was barricaded by the police.
The drama happened shortly after the opposing faction in the LP leadership crisis resisted journalists who tried to interview Apapa.
It was reported that there was a disagreement between two factions of the party before the court resumed proceedings at the tribunal.
