Fayose in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said the police came to arrest those being sought after under funny allegations of stockpiling arms during the June 21, 2014 governorship election.
He said the new plot was an aftermath of the failure of the Department of State Services (DSS) to achieve the plot of coercing the House of Assembly members to impeach him.
