CP Busari debunked the report that the impeached deputy governor is under house arrest stressing that,  the presence of security personnel in the official residence of the Deputy Governor was to prevent looting of government property.

According to him, this followed the advice given to Achuba to relocate away from the official residence of the deputy governor since he is no longer entitled to stay there.

It was earlier reported that there was the presence of fully armed security personnel manning the gate of the official residence of the deputy governor and preventing visitors from going in nor allowed out of the house.

Busari said that the security personnel at the gate would be there until he finally moves out of the house.

The embattled Deputy Governor was impeachment on Friday shortly after the John Baiyeshea seven man committee investigating allegations of gross misconduct against him submitted its report.
