Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Monday locked the deputy governor, Philip Shaibu, out of the government house.
This is as the rift between the two individuals continue to escalate.
It was gathered that Shaibu 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.
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.
He said 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.
