FG says DSS blocked Entrance to National Assembly “without the knowledge of the Presidency”



The presidency has revealed that Tuesday’s blockage of the national assembly entrance by masked operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) was “done without the knowledge of the Presidency”.

This was made known in a statement on the presidency’s Twitter handle.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo had earlier sacked the DSS director general Lawal Daura following the incident.

The statement condemned the act, adding that “all persons within the law enforcement apparatus who participated in this travesty will be identified and subjected to appropriate disciplinary action.”

See the statement below:

Acting President has described the unauthorized takeover of the National Assembly complex earlier today as a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order.

According to him, the unlawful act, which was done without the knowledge of the Presidency is condemnable, and completely unacceptable.

By this statement, the Acting President is consequently assuring Nigerians that all persons within the law enforcement apparatus who participated in this travesty will be identified and subjected to appropriate disciplinary action.

In another tweet, a follow-up to the announcement that Daura has been sacked, the presidency said:

UPDATE: Matthew B. Seiyefa, the most senior Director in the Department of State Services (DSS), will act as Director-General until further notice.

    Something of this magnitude can’t happen without their knowledge.

    This is just some of what’s to come. with the Nigeria Police given such massive power which they don’t know what to do with it. This dastardly act must be treated with brutal force by the Nigerian authority to prevent such from happening ever again. what those members of the DSS did is equivalent to a Coup plot. They must serve crucial time in the slammer,and be terminated from service. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
