NASS Invasion:  Osinbajo Sacks Daura, DSS DG

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has directed the termination of the appointment of the Director General, State Security Service, Lawal Musa Daura with immediate effect.

A statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Office of the Vice President, Laolu Akande, in Abuja, Tuesday, stated that Mr. Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice.

The sack may not be unconnected to Tuesday’s morning invasion of the National Assembly by a detachment of mask wearing operatives of the DSS.
Prior to the statement, Osinbajo had summoned the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Director-General of the Department of State Security, Malam Lawan Daura at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. The two security chiefs, who arrived Aso Rock at different times, were to update the acting president on security developments including the blockade of the National Assembly by security officials. The Inspector-General of Police was the first to arrive at about 12.35 p.m. before the arrival of the DSS Director General at about 1.15 p.m. The police and operatives of the DSS early on Tuesday, blocked the main gate of the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers and staff from gaining access into the complex.

The security operatives, however, later allowed the lawmakers access into the complex while journalists and other staff were barred.
