The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday sacked the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura.

A top government official confirmed to our correspondent on condition of anonymity that Daura was “handed over to law enforcement agents” immediately after his appointment was terminated.

The former DSS boss was in the Presidential Villa when his removal was announced.

“Yes, he was immediately handed over to law enforcement agencies. You know that for somebody that held such an office, he needed to be debriefed and all that,” the source said.

Another source confirmed that Daura was driven out of the premises in a Hilux van belonging to the Nigeria Police Force.

Our correspondent reports that reporters who laid ambush outside for him saw his convoy leaving the premises without him.

It was gathered that the VP was highly embarrassed by the invasion.

The sack letter it was gathered was prepared even before Daura arrived. It was handed over to him by Osinbajo’s aides, as the VP refused to meet with him.

It was also gathered that President Muhammadu Buhari had been complaining of Daura’s antics and would have removed him about two weeks ago but was stopped by some of his aides.

The sack of the DSS boss followed early Tuesday morning siege to the National Assembly by armed and masked operatives of the department.

Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Laolu Akande, announced the firing of Daura in a statement made available to journalists.

He said the Acting President had directed Daura to hand over to the most senior officer in the service.

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”13566″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

The statement reads, “The Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has directed the termination of the appointment of the Director-General, Department of State Services, Lawal Musa Daura, with immediate effect.

“Mr Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice.”

The siege by the DSS, which began as early as 6am caught most employees of the National Assembly unawares as cleaners, bankers, reporters and others who had business to transact within the complex were prevented from entering the premises.

The security officials used an unmarked white Coaster bus and two black Hilux pickups to block the main gate leading to the National Assembly.

Not long after, Senators Abiodun Olujimi (PDP, Ekiti,) Ben Murray Bruce (PDP, Bayelsa) and Rafiu Ibrahim (PDP, Kwara) arrived at the scene. They approached the gate but the masked DSS officers also prevented them from entering.

Few minutes later, a female member of the House of Representatives, Boma Goodhead (PDP, Rivers) arrived and insisted on entering the premises.

When the armed men stood in her way, she approached the operatives menacingly and shouted at them.

She shouted, “I dare you to shoot, shoot me. How can you come here and be embarrassing us?

“Was this what Jonathan did to Buhari? You are all a disgrace.”

Following her protest, she was allowed to enter the premises at 8am. She was soon followed by some legislators but the DSS operatives prevented members of the National Assembly staff and journalists from entering.

In the statement that announced the sacking of Daura, Osinbajo was also quoted as describing the action of the security operatives as a gross violation of constitutional order, stressing that the development was not authorised by the Presidency.

He declared that all persons who participated in the siege would be identified and made to face appropriate disciplinary action.

The statement reads further, “Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has described the unauthorised 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.

SANs salute Osinbajo for sacking Daura, saving democracy
Wed, 08 Aug 2018

Lawyers on Tuesday, including Senior Advocates of Nigeria, saluted the acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), for relieving the Director General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, of his position.

Osinbajo, who is acting in place of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in London on a 10-day vacation, sacked Daura hours after some DSS operatives invaded the National Assembly complex on Tuesday morning.

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”13566″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

The acting President, who is a professor of Law and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, attracted the commendations of his colleagues, who said he had saved the nation’s democracy and upheld the supremacy of the rule of law.

In a statement on Tuesday, a former Deputy Director General of the Nigerian Law School, Prof Ernest Ojukwu (SAN), said the acting President had “renewed great hope that our democracy shall survive.”

Ojukwu, a Nigerian Bar Association’s presidential aspirant, said, “I am excited to be counted as a Nigerian, a lawyer and a law teacher by this example of leadership by our acting President.

“I urge all Nigerians, the Nigerian Bar Association inclusive, to play more proactive roles in protecting our democracy, the rule of law and human rights.

“We should not allow a few men and women to destroy our country by impunity.”

Also, Mr Tayo Oyetibo (SAN), said in a statement that the acting President must be commended “for standing up for the supremacy of the rule of law at this difficult phase of Nigeria’s nascent democracy.”

“All lovers of democracy must support him in his decisive action on the unlawful takeover of the National Assembly,” Oyetibo, a protégé of the late human rights crusader, Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN), said.

Similarly, two Lagos-based lawyers, Messrs Wahab Shittu and Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, hailed Osinbajo for his decisive action on the DSS invasion of the National Assembly complex.
