The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Comrade Philip Shaibu was shocked 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.
Shaibu and his aides waited for about an hour and left. Shaibu made frantic calls trying to reach the Governor but to no avail.
An Aide to the Deputy Governor who made the pictures available to our reporter but begged not to be mentioned disclosed that Shaibu had some discussions with the state commissioner of police and the Director of State Security Services, DSS alerting them of how he was locked out from his office.
Shaibu was said to have summoned the government house camp commandant, Ibrahim Babatunde (SP) and asked him 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.
Shaibu was said to have put calls to Wabba Williams who promised to come, but never came all through the deputy governor’s waiting.
