Osinbajo Sacks Lawal Daura As SSS DG

Osinbajo Sacks Lawal Daura As SSS DG

President Buhari handed over presidential duties to Osinbajo as he left Abuja to London for a 10-day vacation.

The presidency in a statement said the obstruction of lawmakers was without its consent.

But shortly after, the Acting President ordered the immediate sack of the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Musa Daura.

Images of the incident were shared widely on social media.

Osinbajo condemned the unauthorised standoff at the National Assembly complex, describing it as "a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order".

The sacked SSS boss had, along with the IGP and the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, earlier met behind closed doors with the acting president.

So we are glad that we got Katrina in the film and we are all grateful and thankful to her and now she is a part of Bharat . She is already doing Zero with Shah Rukh Khan, Thugs Of Hindostan with Aamir Khan and another film with Yash Raj Films.

The statement gave no reason for Daura's dismissal.

Saraki, whose Senate role makes him Nigeria's third most senior politician, is among a group of lawmakers who have quit President Muhammadu Buhari's ruling party over the last few weeks and joined the main opposition.

Saraki's supporters said the blockade was part of a plan to impeach and replace him.

It is not clear if the meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon will still hold after today's turn of events.

Melaye, while bringing his colleagues up to speed on the plot by members of the PSG, said the APC National Chairman was in a meeting with pro-Buhari senators to collect signatures for Saraki and Ekweremadu's impeachment.

The defections precede presidential and legislative elections early next year.
