BREAKING: Edo Deputy Gov. Locked Out Of Govt. House

The crisis between the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu took a new twist on Monday following the decision of the governor to lock out his estranged deputy from the Government House.

Shaibu got the shock of the moment when he got to his office Monday and found that the gate to the office of the deputy governor and the main entrance leading to the storey building was locked with chains and heavy padlocks.

While he and his aides waited for about an hour before leaving, Shaibu, during the period reportedly made frantic efforts to reach the governor but to no avail.

An aide to the deputy governor who made the pictures available to the public under anonymity disclosed that his principal had some discussions with the Commissioner of Police and the Director, State Services, alerting them of how he was locked out from his office.

According to him, there was no official communication to the effect that the deputy governor’s office had been locked.

Shaibu was consequently said to have summoned the Camp Commandant at the Government House, SP Ibrahim Babatunde, querying why he was locked out of his office.

“He said it was a directive from above adding that the CSO in government house, Wabba will be in a better position to explain”, the aide said.

Shaibu was said to have put calls to Wabba Williams who promised to come to the scene, but never came all through the period Shaibu waited.

  1. Nonsense Nigerian politics. Government house is a public property not Obaseki’s. He is taking this thing damn too far. What right has he to lock out a deputy governor that was elected along side with him? Obaseki should be called to order. He is holding the mandate of the people and not his personal estate.

    There’s no where in the constitution does Obaseki derive the power He is arrogantly using. He doesn’t have that right. Government house or government property is not his personal estate or personal company. We cannot practice this type of democracy in this modern world. This was done in 1999 to 2003 not now. It is condemnable.
