The Edo State House of Assembly fired Philip Shaibu from his role as deputy governor on Monday during a morning session.

Shaibu, who has been in conflict with Governor Godwin Obaseki, was confronted with allegations that led to an investigation by a seven-member panel.

Despite invitations to defend himself, Shaibu chose not to appear before the panel. Consequently, the panel, chaired by Justice S.A. Omonua (retired), proceeded with its inquiry and recommended Shaibu’s removal, citing his failure to present a defense.

During Friday’s session, Justice Omonua expressed disappointment over Shaibu’s absence, highlighting the importance of the respondent’s participation.
