Reactions As LP's Factional Chairman in Apapa is Mobbed.

The prehearing session of the appeal that was filed by Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, against the President-elect Bola Tinubu was postponed by the Presidential Election Appeal Court until Friday, May 19.

At the same time, factions of Obi's party engaged in court battles, resulting in a factional Chairman, Mr. Lamidi Apapa, being taken into protective custody by security personnel attached to the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

The youths who gathered at the court to observe the petition surrounded Apapa, and a group of young people who identified themselves as “Obidients” pushed him away from the cameras, insisting that he did not have the authority to speak for the party.

In the chaos that ensued, his ‘Agbada’ was torn, and someone snatched their cap from his head. The intervention of armed security operatives was necessary to pull Apapa away from the mob, and he was subsequently taken into protective custody by policemen attached to the court.
