In response to her suspension, Opara explained that she received a letter of invitation at 9:25 pm on Tuesday. Given her residence outside Abuja, attending the 10 am appearance deadline on Wednesday proved impossible, leading to her suspension at noon on the same day.

She believed the entire process seemed planned and emphasized her commitment to revealing the truth behind the allegations.

During a press conference in Abuja on Monday, Opara had made startling claims, alleging that proceeds from the sale of forms from Barr. Abure’s home state of Edo was diverted to his private accounts.

She further asserted that only N55 million out of the over N3.5 billion raised was declared to her, with the remainder allegedly pocketed by the national chairman.

The allegations have stirred controversy within the Labour Party, prompting calls for a thorough investigation into the party’s financial affairs and its officials’ conduct.
