It was learnt Ajayi and his aides wanted to move out quietly by removing their belongings on Saturday night in preparation for his planned resignation from the All Progressives Congress(APC).

But aides to Governor Akeredolu raised the alarm they were looting government properties as well as attempting to sneak out some secret documents.

An aide to the Governor, who pleaded anonymity, said the movement of the Deputy Governor’s official vehicles was suspicious at that time.

“He came around 9pm and wanted to go out with three vehicles but the CSO stopped him. He left around 12 midnight,  his wife took three vehicles with the state government license plate and some loads were inside.

“She was stopped and had to call her husband who later came. It was the CSO that called the CP because he saw that there was no reason parking load without inventory being taken”, he said.

Intervention by security personnel at the government house could not save the situation which prompted the policemen to call the Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami.

His media aide, Babatope Okeowo, who denied allegations of looting government property,said his boss was prevented from leaving the government house with one of the vehicles attached to his office.

Babatope said his boss was held back for over four hours and barred by policemen from leaving the government house for his personal residence within Akure because of allegations that he has perfected plans to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Recall the Deputy Govwrnor had been at loggerheads with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and several interventions by prominent individuals to bring peace between them failed.

The quarrel made Ajayi to boycott government functions since March even though their differences started last year after Akeredolu returned after undergoing surgery overseas.

It gathered that Akeredolu lost faith in his deputy when he learnt he was putting political structures in place to unseat him.
