Osinbajo sacks DG DSS, Lawal Daura, with immediate effect

Corruption

The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has claimed that the siege laid to the National Assembly by the officers of the Department of State Services (DSS), came to him as a surprise.

Idris spoke with State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with the acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. So, when I get the brief, in fact we are going to issue a (press) release, " the Police boss said.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has terminated the appointment of the Director General of DSS, Lawal Daura over invasion of the National Assembly earlier today.

"By this statement, Professor Osinbajo is consequently assuring Nigerians that all persons within the law enforcement apparatus who participated in this travesty will be identified and subjected to appropriate disciplinary action", Akande said.

The statement gave no reason for Daura's dismissal. After the lawmakers were allowed in, other officials and the media remained barred from the premises.

A blockade of Nigeria's parliament on Tuesday by security forces that prevented lawmakers from entering for up to an hour was done without the presidency's knowledge, said the acting president, who sacked the head of the security agency.
