Osinbajo sacks DSS boss
Nigeria’s acting president Yemi Osinbajo has sacked the director-general of the country’s secret service following the operatives of the service of the National Assembly on Tuesday.
Masked operatives of the Department of State Services earlier on Tuesday prevented lawmakers, staff and journalists from entering the National Assembly.
Opposition lawmakers accused the ruling all Progressives Congress of being behind the blockade which saw the lawmakers locked out of their offices. The clerk of the National Assembly was also refused entry to the Assembly complex.
“Acting Yemi Osinbajo has directed the termination of the appointment of the DG of the DSS, Mr. Lawal Musa Daura,” said Laolu Akande, media aide to Osinbajo.
“Mr. Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice.”
