#NASSUnderSiege: Police Want To Search Former DSS DG's House
The Nigeria Police Force is eager to follow the invasion of the National Assembly by the Department of State Services (DSS) to the end of the story.
It has requested for permission to search the residence of the man in the eye of the storm, the former Director General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, who was sacked by the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
The request for the search was made by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, in a report on Tuesday’s siege on the National Assembly submitted to the Acting President.
Premium Times published a copy of the report personally signed by the IGP, dated August 8, 2018 and entitled ‘NASS Siege: IGP Writes Osinbajo, Recommends Search Of Daura’s House’.

In the report, the IGP accused sacked Director-General of the Department of State Security, Mr Lawal Daura, of abusing his office and working for “some highly placed politicians” and for “selfish interest”.
The IGP, who confirmed Mr Daura’s arrest in the report, informed the Acting President that he was undergoing further interrogation in Garki, Abuja.
“It is crystal clear that the principal suspect, Lawal Musa Daura, may be acting the script of some highly placed politicians to achieve selfish political goals, hence his unilateral and unlawful decision to invade the National Assembly Complex,” the report read.
