Philip Shuaibu, deputy governor of Edo state, has withdrawn the suit he filed against Godwin Obaseki, governor of the state.

In the suit filed at a federal high court in Abuja, the inspector-general of police, state security service, governor of Edo, speaker of Edo state house of assembly, and chief judge of Edo state, were listed as first to fifth defendants, respectively.

Shaibu had asked the court to restrain the governor, the speaker of the state assembly, and the chief judge, from “initiating impeachment proceedings or sanctioning any impeachment” against him.

However, in a statement issued on Tuesday, the deputy governor said due to intervention from “well-meaning citizens of Edo”, he has instructed his solicitors to withdraw the suit.
