Edo State deputy governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, was on Monday morning, September 18, locked out of his office at the Government House in Benin, the state capital.
It was gathered that Shaibu got to his office and met a chain and heavy padlock at the entrance.
“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.
Channels Television reports that sources close to him say Shaibu has relocated his office to a new location outside of the Government House and was not expected at the old office.
They also explained that there was no meeting scheduled for Monday so the Deputy Governor was not expected at the Government House.
