Osinbajo sacks DSS Boss, Lawal Daura

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

The security operatives also blocked the lawmakers and NASS workers from gaining access to the offices but later allowed the lawmakers go in.

He is Matthew Benabafa Seiyefa, who until his appointment was the director in charge of the Institute of Security Studies (ISS), an institution established in 2005 as the cardinal training institution for the DSS.

Said: "The Nigeria Police Force wishes to categorically state that its personnel was not involved in any way whatsoever in the blockade of the National Assembly in the early hours of today, 7th August, 2018".

Witnesses said armed men wearing the black uniform of the Department of State Security stood at the gates of the building, where they were later joined by police officers.

He was received at the entrance of the Villa by the aide de camp to the acting president.

While the reason for his termination has not been made public, early speculations indicate that it might have something to do with DSS operatives taking over the National Assembly complex early on Tuesday.

These included the country's third most senior elected official, Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Another prominent member of the Pro-Saraki group, Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West, accused the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, of collecting signatures of lawmakers with the aim of effecting a leadership change in the upper chamber of the National Assembly. Parliament went on recess last week until September 25 but meetings were to be held on Tuesday.

Mahmoud said, the action of the DSS was unconstitutional and poses a grave threat to the nation's democracy and called on the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) to immediately call the security forces to order.
