Edo State deputy governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, was on Monday morning, locked out of his office at the Dennis Osadebey Avenue seat of power in Benin City, Edo State capital.
Shaibu got to his office and met a chain and heavy padlock at the entrance.
The embattled deputy governor and his aides waited for about one hour and thereafter left.
Shaibu also made frantic phone calls to his principal, Governor Andrew Obaseki, but to no avail.
Sources revealed 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.
