The incident was said to have occurred just a day before the party’s primary election in Edo State, and party officials are yet to make a statement regarding the matter.

In the petition addressed to the Commissioner of Police, Edo State Command, dated February 13, Anselm detailed the events surrounding the alleged assault on December 29, 2023.

Anselm, who is a member and National Youth Leader of the Labour Party, narrated how he and his colleagues were ambushed by a mob outside the Smart Homes Hotel in Benin City allegedly orchestrated by individuals including Mary Okheime Newberry and Austin Emeka and planned under false pretenses of providing transportation and accommodation on behalf of unnamed “stakeholders.”
