The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has written a report on Tuesday’s siege on the National Assembly to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
In the report, the IGP accused sacked Director-General of the Department of State Security, Lawal Daura, of abusing his office and working for “some highly placed politicians” and for “selfish interest”.
The IGP, who confirmed Daura’s arrest in the report, informed the Acting President that he was undergoing further interrogation in Garki, Abuja.
The IGP said Daura claimed he deployed the operatives of the DSS based on intelligence report “that unauthorised persons were planning to smuggle undisclosed dangerous weapons and incriminating items into the National Assembly Complex”.
He, however, said the fired DSS boss did not share the information with the Acting President, the Police or other sister security agencies.
Based on the findings, the IGP recommended that DSS operatives that “invaded and barricaded” the National Assembly complex should be released to the police investigating team for questioning.
