Anambra election: Our candidate abducted – Labour Party

The Anambra state chapter of the Labour Party has raised the alarm over the disappearance of its governorship candidate for the November poll, Obiora Agbasimalo.

The Organising Secretary of the party, Chief Clement Ojukwu, raised the alarm at a press conference, in Awka, Anambra State.

Ojukwu said its candidate was kidnapped in September on his way from Ezinifite, Nnewi to Azia in Ihiala Local Government Area of the state.

He said, “Our candidate has not appeared since he was abducted on September 18. He has never reappeared anywhere. He was abducted on his way from Ezinifite, Nnewi to Azia in Ihiala Local Government.

“We’ve been in touch with his abductors to reassure us he is alive. But he has not appeared or reappeared anywhere. We’re doing everything possible to ensure his release.

“The abduction of our candidate is very political because when he was in the bank, nobody has gone after him, not to talk of kidnapping him.”
