Abure stated that after the general election, attempts were made to instigate crises within the party through false accusations of forgery and embezzlement.

He lamented that aggrieved individuals within the party were being manipulated to write petitions and cause trouble, leading to their arrests by the police.

Abure highlighted the irony of the police acting on false accusations, only for investigations to reveal their falsehood.

He refrained from discussing the specifics of the allegations against him, citing ongoing investigations.

However, he expressed relief at being released on bail following interventions from various quarters.
