The recent development is an indication that things have fallen apart between the Governor and his erstwhile closest staff.

Ejes Gist TV had reported Akerele resigned his position as Chief of Staff Friday night and was replaced with Ethan Uzamere, Saturday night by Obaseki.

It was gathered that the security operatives were said to have arrived at the residence located off 1st Ugbor Road, GRA, in Benin, at about 5 pm in an 18-seater bus and three operational vehicles of Operation Wabaizigan.

The security detail to the Governor had earlier called the Personal Assistant to the former CoS, Jasper Olowojoba, to come and remove Akerele’s personal belongings from his old office.

Olowojoba, who was said to have replied that he would remove the items on Monday, was, however, prevailed upon to come immediately.

Security men attached to the office were said to have allowed him to remove all the belongings, after which they followed him home.

After that, Olowojoba was arrested after using him to search Akerele’s house.

An undisclosed source close to the former Chief of Staff, allegedly told journalists that the whereabouts of Akerele who received visitors in his house earlier in the day remains unknown.

“They called his PA several that he should come and collect Akerele’s personal belongings so that the new Chief of Staff could resume, but Olowojoba said he would go for them on Monday, but he insisted he must go immediately.

He said: “When he went, they allowed him to remove all his belongings, and when they were going with the last consignment, SSS (operatives) went with him to Akerele’s house. They ransacked his house and then went away with his PA, but Akerele’s whereabouts are unknown.”

At the time of filing this report, Akerele nor his assistant could be reached for confirmation, as their mobile phones were switched off and no reply from a text message sent to them.
