The national chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, has identified a major worry ahead of the November 11 governorship election.

Speaking on Channels Television’s People’s Townhall on Election Security on Sunday, the LP chairman noted: “My party and candidates are very worried about the security situation in Imo and Kogi, especially. All through our campaigns, our offices have been attacked severally by unknown gunmen. In some cases, security agencies accompany [those who carry out] some of those activities that took place in the attack on our office.

“All of these activities raise serious issues about the security of lives and properties in Imo and Kogi, especially. Our major worry as a political party is in Imo and Kogi.

“We have less violence about Bayelsa. Bayelsa may not be a very serious flashpoint. We are not seriously worried about Bayelsa State.”
