How Dethroned DSS Boss, Lawal Daura Plotted NASS Takeover

The lawmakers were to consider the about N228 billion budget submitted by Independent National Electoral Commission for the 2019 general elections and other critical spending approvals for the country during the aborted emergency sitting. Vanguard learnt exclusively that the sacked DSS boss, who hails from the same town with President Muhammadu Buhari, deployed no fewer than 100 heavily armed DSS operatives to cordon off the National Assembly premises a few hours to the meeting.

A top source told Vanguard that although embattled Daura had informed the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, of the plan to effect massive deployment of DSS operatives to lay siege to the NASS, and actually pleaded with him to support the operation with his men, the police chief declined to contribute additional policemen for the the ‘operation’.

“What the IGP told Daura was that he had enough police officers and men currently manning the NASS and did not need to deploy more personnel there,” the top official confirmed to Vanguard on Tuesday.
“That was the explanation, which the IGP also tendered to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, who summoned both Daura and Idris to the Villa to explain their roles in the siege on the NASS,” the source added.
The acting President was convinced that the IGP did not mobilize his men to the legislature and that was why he was not sacked along with the DG DSS.
Reports say Daura was arrested just shortly after he was sacked by the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo for “breaching national security.”
The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, had, earlier on, directed the immediate termination of the appointment of Daura with immediate effect following the invasion of the National Assembly chambers by masked men of the DSS.

Endy Edeson

Martins. I think he will. After all, the VP took permission from Buhari even while he is in London

Martins A Odilichukwu

@Edeson are you sure? So why didn't he Buhari sack IGP for refusing to stay in Benue state on his orders...

Endy Edeson

It is a different case entirely. Daura instigated the trouble in NASS but IGP did not instigate the trouble in Benue

Martins A Odilichukwu

So you call not obeying orders from the commander in chief nothing abi? So the IGP will do nothing if his own junior officers disobey his orders?

Martins A Odilichukwu

Tell me where in the world military setting that,that had happened before without disciplinary actions taken even in Nigeria....

Anuforo Osinachi James

Osinbajo once sack NHIS boss when he was the acting president but when baba came back, he reienstated him. When baba comes back, we will have an idea on what transpired through is actions.

Martins A Odilichukwu

@James you just said it all let's not celebrate yet until the emperor comes back

Am not interested in his sack, but the outcome of the investigation of whose orders they followed to lay siege on NASS sacking him is covering the obvious.
