BREAKING: Acting President Osinbajo sacks DSS boss, Lawal Daura



In what appears to be a twist to the siege on the National Assembly by security operatives on Tuesday , the Acting President , Yemi Osinbajo , has sacked the Director – General of the Department of State Service , Lawal Daura .
The DSS and the Police had locked down the National Assembly on Tuesday , even as the Senate leadership had scheduled a meeting to hold in the chambers in the afternoon .

Lawmakers who came with the hope of attending the meeting were denied entry into the Assembly by the security operatives .

Lawmakers elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress had dissociated themselves from the security operatives ’ actions , even as the opposition Peoples Democratic Party had accused the Executive and APC lawmakers of an attempt to truncate democracy .

Osinbajo ’ s spokesman , Laolu Akande , disclosed Daura ’ s sacking on his Twitter handle , @ akandeoj .

He wrote , “ AgP Yemi Osinbajo has directed the termination of the appointment of the DG of the DSS, Mr . Lawal Musa Daura . ”
