#NASSUnderSiege: Real Reasons Daura Was Sacked As DSS DG
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday fired the Director General of the Department of the State Security (DSS), Lawal Daura.
Osinbajo took the decision after Tuesday’s invasion of the National Assembly by men of the service.
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.
Osinbajo in a statement through his spokesman, Laolu Akande condemned what he called the “unauthorised invasion” of the National Assembly complex by operatives of the service.
The statement said, “Acting President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), has described the unauthorized takeover of the National Assembly complex earlier today as a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order.
“According to him, the unlawful act which was done without the knowledge of the Presidency is condemnable and completely unacceptable.
“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.”
