The Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has sacked the  Director- General of Department of State Service  (DSS), Lawal Musa Daura.

A statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Acting President, Laolu Akande, said Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the DSS until further notice.

Although no reason was given for the sack of the DSS boss, it may not be unconnected with the blockade of the National Assembly complex on Tuesday morning by operatives of the DSS who claimed to be acting on orders from above.

In another statement,  Osinbajo said the takeover of the National Assembly complex was not authorised.

He said it was a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order.
Osinbajo had on Tuesday met behind closed doors with the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris and Daura.

The meeting was held at the Acting President’s office in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

They arrived the Villa at different times, and likely to update the acting president on security developments including the blockage of the National Assembly by security officials.

The IGP  was the first to arrive at 12.35 p.m. before the arrival of the DSS Director General at 1.15 p.m.
