Acting president sacks DSS boss as APC dissociates self from NASS imbroglio

From Fatima Bukar, Abuja
Acting president Yemi Osinbajo, has in the wake of the siege on the National Assembly complex by members of the Department of Security Service (DSS), Tuesday sacked the Director General of DSS, Lawal Daura.
In a press statement by the senior special assistant to the acting president on media and publicirty Laoulu Akande, Osinbajo terminated the appointment of the DG state security service Lawal Musa Daura with immediate effect.
Mr. Daura was directed to hand-over to the most senior officer of the DSS until further notice.
In another development, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from the fracas in the NASS saying that it has no hand in it.
In a statement signed by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, on Tuesday, the APC said what happened at the National Assembly was purely a “legislative matter.”
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to mischievous attempts in some partisan quarters to link Tuesday’s developments in the National Assembly to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“While the Party is monitoring the developments in the National Assembly like every other concerned Nigerian and stakeholder, there is absolutely no basis for all the false allegations and attempt to blame the APC National Chairman for the development there. It is strictly a legislative matter.”
