Rift gets messier as aide block Edo deputy governor from accessing the governor

Deputy Governor blocked

There was a mild drama on Sunday, August 27, 2023, when a security aide to Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, stopped his deputy, Philip Shaibu, from accessing his principal.

This happened at the 32nd anniversary of Edo State, held at the New Festival Hall, Government House, Benin City, Edo State.

In the photos obtained on Monday, a security operative was seen blocking Shaibu's access to Obaseki during the event.

But speaking after the event, Shaibu had pledged his loyalty to his principal, despite their rift.

This is coming after weeks of dispute between the governor and his deputy. The deputy had gone to a Federal High Court in Abuja and obtained an injunction to stop the governor and state assembly from plots to impeach him.
