Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has sacked the Director General of DSS, Daura, over invasion of the National Assembly earlier today.
Osinbajo on Tuesday summoned the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Director-General of the Department of State Security, Malam Lawan Daura at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
A statement by Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity said Daura had been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice.
It was gathered that the two security chiefs, who arrived Aso Rock at different times, were to update the acting president on security developments including the blockade of the National Assembly by security officials.
The police and operatives of the DSS early on Tuesday blocked the main gate of the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers and staff from gaining access into the complex.
The security operatives, however, later allowed the lawmakers enter the complex while journalists and other staff were barred.
