Sources revealed 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 of 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.

SP Babatunde was alleged to have said that the directives to lock out Shaibu from the facility was an order from above, adding that the CSO in the government house, Wabba, would be in a better position to explain.

Shaibu was said to have put calls to Wabba Williams on the phone, who promised to call back the estranged deputy governor but did not come back.
