Osinbajo Sacks Lawal Daura As SSS DG

Senator Akpabio with President Buhari in London

But shortly after, the Acting President ordered the immediate sack of the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Musa Daura.

The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris is also in the closed-door meeting.

"The presidency's sack of Daura was a damage-control stunt and a knee-jerk gimmick which came as a response to the national and worldwide outcry against the armed invasion of our legislature", said a PDP statement.

Daura was directed to hand over to the most senior officer at the State Security Service, SSS.

Saraki, whose Senate role makes him Nigeria's third most senior politician, is among a group of lawmakers who have quit President Muhammadu Buhari's ruling party over the last few weeks and joined the main opposition.

After meeting with Osinbajo, he left the villa without speaking with reporters.

Senate President Bukola Saraki is set to hold a world press conference Wednesday (today) afternoon at 12 noon.

It will be recalled that armed and mask wearing operatives of the DSS Tuesday morning invaded the NASS complex, stopping lawmakers, staff and journalists from gaining access to the complex.

Seiyefa enlisted into the Nigerian Security Organization (NSO) in 1984 after completing his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme at the School of Islamic and Legal Studies (SILS) Kano. The DSS is a security arm that is directly under the presidency.

Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has described as a gross violation of the law, the blockage of the National Assembly by security operatives from the Department of State Services, (DSS) and the Police.
