Ag. President, Yemi Osinbajo fires DG of DSS

BREAKING: Osinbajo sacks DSS Boss, Lawal Daura

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has fired the Director General of the Department of State Security, Lawal Daura.

On Tuesday, masked security operatives were seen blocking access to the parliament building in the capital Abuja.

The expected meeting between the leadership of the National Assembly and INEC officials earlier scheduled for noon on Tuesday, has been put off.

Akande is yet to give further details on Daura's sack, however, the development may not be unconnected to the blockage of the National Assembly by operatives of the DSS.

A top source quoted by the report said: "What the IGP told Daura was that he had enough police officers and men now manning the NASS and did not need to deploy more personnel there".

Matthew Seiyefa, a director of the Department of State Services (DSS) from Bayelsa state, has been appointed as acting director-general of the service.

Crystal Palace are determined that Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur target Wilfried Zaha will not leave Selhurst Park this summer. He's very much an integral part of Crystal Palace Football Club.

Insiders at the DSS said he was placed under house arrest at the presidential villa.

He said that the unlawful act perpetrated without the knowledge of the Presidency was condemnable, completely unacceptable and unauthorised.

Some APC lawmakers also in recent interviews with newsmen, warned that there will be no peace until Saraki resigned as president of the Senate.

National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomole, held a crucial meeting with some senators in the party on Tuesday.

Seiyefa, who came out of the Acting President's office around 5p.m, left the Villa in another vehicle.

Seiyefa enlisted into the Nigerian Security Organization (NSO) in 1984 after completing his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme at the School of Islamic and Legal Studies (SILS) Kano.
