Yesterday was a bad day; they wanted to lynch me - Lamidi Apapa, says

Lamidi Apapa, factional Labour Party chairman, said that yesterday was a bad day and that they wanted to lynch him.

Lamidi Apapa made the statement in an interview with Channels Television during the Sunrise Daily program when he was asked about what happened in the court yesterday.

Recall that yesterday, there was leadership crisis in Labour Party at the presidential election Tribunal court in Abuja. Lamidi Apapa who first had a fierce argument with the director-general of Obi/Datti campaign, Akin Osuntokun over a seat was later booed out of the court when he was told that they do not know him.

However, Lamidi Apapa on the program said that yesterday was a bad day and that if not for the intervention of the Press, they wanted to lynch him.

"It was a very bad day, if not the Press men that was around , I would have been dead. They wanted to lynch me."

Lamidi Apapa explained that what later caused problem at the court yesterday was that, a woman who called herself Labour Party women leader wanted to speak but he raised his hand in objection that she's not speaking for Labour Party because he's the acting national chairman.

He said the court said they won't hear the matter again since they are having leadership problems. He said after the court, people from Abure and Peter Obi confronted him that he won't speak to the Press, and that is how everything started that they wanted to lynch him.
