Phillip Shuaibu withdraws suit against Gov. Obaseki after “intervention” 

The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shuaibu, has decided to withdraw the lawsuit he filed at the Federal High Court aimed at halting alleged efforts by Governor Godwin Obaseki to unseat him from his position.

The unexpected decision was made public through a circular dated September 5, 2023. 

Shuaibu’s lawsuit, identified as Suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/1027/2023, had named several high-profile individuals as defendants, including the Inspector General of Police, the State Security Service, the Governor of Edo State, and the Chief Judge of Edo State.
