The Cross River State secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Calabar has been stripped of its flags with the help of armed policemen.
The development is coming about 48 hours after Governor Ben Ayade defected from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Aside stripping the building of the PDP flags, painters had begun repainting it to green, red and white, an indication that the secretariat is being transformed to that of the news state office of the APC.

The over 50 security operatives supervising the act, came in unmarked pickup trucks, and blocked access from the Kia motor shop all the way to the secretariat which is located along the Murtala Muhammed Highway.
It was unclear as at the time of this report the real motive behind the action but sources say the PDP was owing years of rent to its landlord.
But some residents attributed it to the recent defection of the governor.
