Peter Obi Sympathises with Abure Over ‘Mysterious’ Fire Incident

Peter Obi, the 2023  presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has expressed shock over the fire outbreak at the home of Julis Abure, the party’s National Chairman.

Abure’s Abuja home was mysteriously gutted by fire in the early hours of yesterday, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, revealed in a statement on Wednesday.

He said that the fire started a few minutes after 1 a.m. At the same time, Abure and members of his family were asleep. According to a member of the family who narrated the incident, the family was woken up by neighbours and security men living in the compound who raised the alarm.

He said:

“The entire family was trapped, as the inferno had reached the staircase, making it impossible for Abure and his family to escape.

“However, it took divine intervention for the national chairman and his family to escape after neighbours and security men gallantly pulled down one of the windows upstairs, allowing the family to escape.”

Reacting in a statement via his official X handle on Thursday, Obi sympathised with Abure and his family, saying:

I received with shock the report of a fire outbreak in the Abuja home of the National Chairman of the Labour Party, Barr Julius Abure. I sincerely sympathise with Barr Abure and his family, who must be traumatised by now by this sad incident, while thanking God for their lives.

While we await the outcome of the investigation from the Police and the fire service on the cause of the fire incident, I thank all those whose timely intervention helped to minimise the damages.

However, Ifoh confirmed that Abure and his family were rushed to a private hospital where they received treatment, and their condition is currently stable.
