At least 25 operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Edo State on Sunday sealed the personal residence of the ex-Chief of Staff to Governor Godwin Obaseki, Taiwo Akerele, who resigned on Saturday.
The DSS operatives also arrested Akerele’s Personal Assistant, Jaspa Olowojoba, his other staff and security man.
It was gathered those arrested from the house located at off First Ugbor road, Benin were whisked away.
Akerele resigned on Saturday morning, alleging the Governor was sidelining him in running the state.
He was replaced with 38-year-old Osaze Uzamere, the son of Senator Ehigie Uzamere, who represented Edo South Senatorial District between 2007 and 2011.
It was gathered the DSS operatives arrived Akerele’s residence around 5pm in an 18-seater bus and three other vehicles of Operation Wabaizigan.
