Mr. Gboyega Aribisogan, the only member of the All Progressives Congress in the Ekiti State House of Assembly, was arrested around 6.30am on Wednesday and taken to Abuja, Daily Trust reports.
The newspaper reports that the lawmaker who defected from the PDP to the APC last year has been on suspension slammed on him by the PDP-dominated House of Assembly which members accused him of disloyalty to Gov. Ayo Fayose.
While confirming the arrest of the lawmaker, his younger brother, Sola, in a telephone chat with reporters in Ado Ekiti said about 10 security men from the Police, Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the Department of State Services (DSS) carried out the arrest.
Sola also said his brother might have been arrested to give clarification on some “sensitive” stories carried by his newspaper, New Democrat.
“The security men came in a Toyota Hummer bus, they did not search the house, but they only showed their identity cards. They arrived at about 6.00am and left at 7.35am.”
However, the APC Publicity Secretary in the state, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said although he heard of the arrest, he said he was yet to be briefed.
