Blade key stuck in door

Hello All,

I used my blade key in the driver side door after the battery went dead. I successfully opened the door by turning the key counter clockwise to the right.
I wanted to see if I could lock it with the blade key while I put a charger on. I turned the key to clockwise to the left. It didn't lock and now I can't get the key out!
Any ideas?

The so-called handle on the key was rotated from the bottom 6 o'clock to the right until it was at 3 o'clock. It is now stuck after I rotated it to the the 9 o'clock position. I can only rotate it back to 8 o'clock maximum.
Have tried oil and left for days and also tried an air-duster to blow the oil in. Still no luck getting it back to 6 o'clock.
