The tussle between the Executive Governor of Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu has taken a new dimension as the deputy governor was barred from entering the Government House.
According to information, Shaibu got the shock of his life when he got to his office and discovered that the gate to the office of the deputy governor and the main entrance leading to the storey building was locked with chains and padlocks.
He waited outside the gate for almost an hour before he left the scene despite making futile efforts to reach the governor.
An aide to Shaibu revealed that the deputy governor had some discussions with the Commissioner of Police and the Director, the Department of State Services (DSS) to alert them of how he was locked out of his office.
Also, he said there was no official communication to the effect that the office of the deputy governor had been locked.
Reports have it that Shaibu summoned the Camp Commandant at the Government House, SP Ibrahim Babatunde, and asked why he was locked out of his office.
Babatunde reportedly informed Shaibu that “it was a directive from above adding that the CSO in government house, Wabba will be in a better position to explain.”
Shaibu called Wabba Williams who promised to come to the scene but did not come before Shaibu left.
