"I Would Have Been Dead If People Weren't There" - Apapa Says After LP Supporters Mobbed Him

The factional leader of the Labour Party (LP), Lamidi Apapa, has claimed that he would have died in the middle of angry LP supporters who mobbed him if people weren't present at the scene. According to the report published by Vanguard, the factional chairman noted that he received threats that he shouldn't go ahead with his planned appearance in court but he went ahead with it. He lamented that the mob pounced on him and removed his cap, adding that he would have been dead if people weren't there

Recall that in a viral video, Apapa was making his way out of the court when he was mobbed by angry supporters. Chants of 'Ole' which translates to 'thief' rend the air as Apapa was forced out of the court premises. The video also showed the moment police officers struggled to take the factional chairman of the party away from the angry LP supporters.

Speaking on this, he said that he would have lost his life if people weren't there to witness what happened. He made it clear that he isn't working for the opposition, adding that he remains loyal to the party.

"They threatened that if I appear in court, something would happen. They pounced on me, removed my cap and I am very sure that if not that you people were there, I would have been dead by now."
