The police have unsealed the Imo State secretariat of the Labour Party located in Owerri, the state capital.
It was observed that police operatives who took over the place on Monday sealed it and had left the place.
It was also observed that staff members at the secretariat have regained access into the LP office.
A chieftain of the party in the state, who doesn’t want to be quoted, also confirmed that the secretariat had been unsealed.
The national secretary of the party, Umar Farouk, had in a statement accused the state governor, Hope Uzodimma, of conniving with police to seal the secretariat.
The statement reads in part, “the national leadership of the Labour Party is shocked over the invasion and occupation of its secretariat in Owerri, today by the agents of the Imo state governor, Hope Uzodimma, including thugs and unauthorized police men drafted from the government house.
“Such illegal occupation was akin to similar invasion on the same secretariat on Wednesday March 15, 2023.
