“I feel highly betrayed by the governor. When we go to church some biblical verses begin to make meaning to us since this incident started. I now know why the bible says the heart of man is desperately wicked. I added political value, my finances and deployed structure for Obaseki’s second term.”

Obaseki and Shaibu have been at loggerheads since early 2023. Amid the rift, Shaibu had declared his intention to run for the governorship election in the state.
