Lawal Daura

The former helmsman of the Department of State Security Service (DSS), Lawal Daura, has said intelligence report that unauthorised persons were planning to smuggle dangerous weapons and incriminating items into the National Assembly, prompted him to deploy operatives to the complex.

Daura’s statement was contained in the interim investigation report submitted by the Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, to the acting president, Yemi Osinbajo, Daily Trust reports.

The IGP, however, faulted the intelligence report by Daura, noting that the report cannot be substantiated as the DSS personnel deployed were not EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) experts or specialist in this regard.

The police boss made it clear that Daura carried out the siege on the National Assembly complex without the approval of the acting president.

“The former Director-General, Department of State Security Service, Mr Lawal Musa Daura acted unilaterally without informing the presidency.

He did not share or intimate other security agencies on the unlawful operations,” Idris said in the report.
