Osinbajo sacks DG of DSS, Lawal Daura over National Assembly Invasion

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris has absolved his men of blame from Tuesday's blockage of the National Assembly (NASS) by security operatives, saying that the development came to him as a surprise.

Seiyefa, from Bayelsa State, arrived the Presidential Villa in an official SUV at 4:00p.m, clutching a file and was received at the entrance by the ADC to the acting President.

In a statement by his spokesman Laolu Akande, the acting president said the act was a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order. "When I have a detailed picture, we'll make a release about it".

In a statement by his media aide, Professor Osinbajo described the takeover as unlawful and unauthorised, vowing to ensure everyone involved is disciplined.

His sack was announced while he was still meeting with the Acting President.

The Tuesday siege was mainly carried out by the DSS and lasted from the early hours of Tuesday till afternoon.

It was learnt that lawmakers as well as staff of the National Assembly were initially prevented from entering the premises by operatives of the DSS. Most Nigerians including leaders of opposition parties condemned the actions of the security agencies. But it turned out there was nothing like that in the offing as no APC senator was in the National Assembly when they were creating the row outside the gate.
