The affected members were deputy State Chairman II East, Jagun Lookman; State Women Leader, Oluwabukola Soyoye, ex-State Treasurer, Gbadebo Fesomade; State Publicity Secretary, Jide Amusan; State Youth Leader, Abdulmalik Olaleye; Assistant State Youth Leader, Adeshina Shojobi; Senatorial Women Leader Ogun East, Deborah Adewale; Assistant State Secretary, Olatunde Abolade, Abel Olaleye and Abayomi Collins.

Okupe has been having some issues with the top hierarchy of the LP and some disgruntled members of the National Working Committee of the party, many of whom claim that he has a history of financial impropriety and intolerance.

He was also accused of polarising the party along with some alleged ‘dissident’ members he recruited from the Peoples Democratic Party.

However, speaking on the developmentment, the National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, stated that it was fake news.
