The breakdown of relations between Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu, took a new turn on Monday, September 18, with the governor’s decision to bar his estranged deputy from the Government House.
When Shaibu arrived at his office on Monday morning, he saw that the gate to the deputy governor’s office at Dennis Osadebey Avenue and the main door leading to the storey building were both secured with chains and hefty padlocks.
He and his aides waited for about an hour before leaving. Shaibu, during that period reportedly made frantic phone calls to his principal, Governor Obaseki but to no avail.
An assistant to the deputy governor who made the pictures available to the public anonymously disclosed that his principal had some discussions with the Commissioner of Police and the Director of State Services, informing them of how he was locked out of his office.
According to him, 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, questioning 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 through the period Shaibu waited

Football is coming home! UK & Republic of Ireland set to host Euro 2028 as Turkey withdraw bid
The United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland look set to host Euro 2028 after the Turkish FA withdrew its bid to host the tournament.
The Turkish FA has officially withdrawn its bid to host Euro 2028 in order to focus on its plan to co-host the tournament with Italy in 2032. UEFA has now approved the joint proposal, which was first announced in July.
Turkey’s withdrawal from the 2028 bidding process means that the UK and Republic of Ireland’s bid will now run unopposed. Wembley Stadium hosted the semi-finals and final of the delayed 2020 European Championship, but the UK has not hosted an entire major tournament since 1996.
Both bids will require official approval at a meeting of UEFA’s executive committee on Tuesday. An official statement from UEFA read: “The presentations at that meeting will be an important part of the process which will take due consideration of the content of the bid submissions before reaching a decision.”
If approved, then Euro 2028 will be hosted in the UK and Ireland. Among the ten proposed stadiums are Wembley Stadium, Hampden Park and the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, as well as the currently unbuilt Bramley Moore Dock stadium in Liverpool and Casement Park in Belfast
