Osinbajo Sacks Lawal Daura As SSS DG

Dr Abdulmumin Jibrin speaks during an interview on Channels Television’s Roadmap 2019

"The acting President was convinced that the IGP did not mobilize his men to the legislature and that was why he was not sacked along with the DG DSS", the source said.

Some lawmakers like Senator Ben Bruce took to social media to make the revelation, saying they were doing everything to protect "our democracy".

The Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has ordered a termination of the appointment of the Director-General of the Department Of State Security (DSS), Lawal Musa Daura.

Osinbajo condemned the unauthorized takeover of the National Assembly complex, describing it as "a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order". Osinbajo is acting president for Buhari, who last week left for a 10-day holiday in Britain.

He said that the unlawful act perpetrated without the knowledge of the Presidency was condemnable, completely unacceptable and unauthorised.

The statement gave no reason for Daura's dismissal.

The National Assembly was on Tuesday morning barricaded by the operatives, temporarily preventing lawmakers and staff of the National Assembly from gaining access to their offices.

The ruling party said attempts to blame its leaders for Tuesday's blockade were "false allegations" and "mischievous".

"Obviously, like I said, I have not got a detailed brief on that".
