Patrol vehicles of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Ondo State Command has been sighted at the premises of the state’s House of Assembly.

The development is coming barely two days after the state Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, renounced his membership with the All Progressive Congress, APC to join the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Naija News learnt that the men of the police force were deployed on Tuesday morning to the Assembly complex following reports that there might be a disorder at the lawmaker’s sitting today.

According to a source who disclosed the development to newsmen a few moments ago, all workers at the legislative complex were forced to run for their safety.

“We woke up to see policemen in our complex this morning manning strategic positions. I overheard one of them saying they were asked by the Commissioner of Police to stay here,” said the source who pleaded to remain anonymous.

He added, “There has been plans to impeach the deputy governor since he defected to the PDP on Sunday and the presence of the policemen is to provide cover for some of the lawmakers loyal to the governor to carry out the job.

“I have found my way out of the complex while other workers are running away in order not to be affected.”

Meanwhile, Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has sacked Mr. Allen Sowore, Special Assistant on New Media to his Deputy, Agboola Ajayi, Naija News reports.
