Governor Obaseki locks Deputy Shaibu outside Government house gates [video]
Edo state deputy governor Philip Shaibu has been denied access to his office at the government house.
Edo State deputy governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, has been locked out of the government house today, while trying to access his office.
The deputy was seen at the gates of the Dennis Osadebey Avenue seat of power in Benin City, Edo State capital as he made calls to be let in.
He had found the premises under chain and heavy padlock and waited for about an hour in an attempt to gain entry to no avail.

Dockaysworld learnt that Shaibu had some discussions with the State’s Commissioner of Police and the Director of State Security Services (DSS), alerting them of how he was locked out from his office.
“Up till now, I don’t have any official communication that I should relocate. The only people that have official communication are my civil servants. The civil servants have official communication but I don’t. As I am speaking to you now, I am standing by the gate,” he said while on a phone call to a yet-to-be-identified person.
Recall that about two weeks ago, a signboard sprang up at the former State Procurement Office, showing the Deputy Governor’s workplace some few meters away from the Government House, but Shaibu insisted that he was not informed of the development.
Tensions seem to persist, as Governor Godwin Obaseki had accused his deputy of staging a coup. Meanwhile former Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has told Shaibu that the APC will not accept him in his fight with his principal.
