According to Achuba, on February 15, he was about to travel home when his security details were ordered to report to Government House for a briefing by the ADC to Governor Bello. On getting to Government House, the ADC to the governor took them to the SARS office to make a statement. He said:
“They accused my ADC and Orderly of gun running but they denied the allegation. As I am speaking now they are under detention. I informed the Commissioner of Police on the situation but till now he has refused to take any action.
“I am a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC). I reported to the national leader of the APC. My impress has been stopped for no reason by the governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
“I live as deputy governor in the house without security, I travelled home without police, my life is in danger.”
