The sacking of Lawan Daura, Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS), by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo was done with the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari, SaharaReporters has been told.

SaharaReporters understands that the decision to sack Daura was taken at about 4am on Tuesday, and Osinbajo secured Buhari’s approval before making the decision public.

Sources confirmed to SaharaReporters that Daura ordered Tuesday’s DSS siege to the National Assembly in order to whip up public sentiments for Bukola Saraki, President of the Senate. See Also Breaking News BREAKING: Sacked DSS DG Daura Arrested And Detained

It was gathered that Osinbajo was infuriated that he, as the Acting President and Chief Security Officer of the country, was not consulted before the deployment of DSS operatives to the National Assembly.

The Police had also been told to deploy its men, but the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris rejected the offer, saying there was no threat to security at the National Assembly 

As we earlier reported, Daura has already been arrested by a combined team of the Police and the Special Anti-Robbery squad (SARS).

He is currently being detained at the SARS headquarters.
