Why Osinbajo spared IGP Idris — NASS SIEGE

Dr Abdulmumin Jibrin speaks during an interview on Channels Television’s Roadmap 2019

A top source quoted by the report said: "What the IGP told Daura was that he had enough police officers and men now manning the NASS and did not need to deploy more personnel there".

His resignation comes two days after he met with President Muhammadu Buhari and another senior member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu.

Yemi Osinbajo has terminated the appointment of the Department of State Security (DSS), Lawal Musa Daura.

President Buhari handed over presidential duties to Osinbajo as he left Abuja to London for a 10-day vacation.

He said that the unlawful act which was done without the knowledge of the Presidency was condemnable and completely unacceptable.

The Acting President, in the statement, condemned the action of the DSS as "a gross violation of the constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order".

The statement gave no reason for Daura's dismissal.

"The National Chairman said that democrats all over the World do not need any further evidence to show that President Buhari and APC have suspended democracy and are now running a draconian administration".

It is not clear if the meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon will still hold after today's turn of events.

The wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has asked politicians to operate within the guidelines of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

After the blockade, Saraki's supporters greeted him with chanting in the parliament building.

The sack is believed to be related to Mr Daura's role in the siege on the National Assembly on Tuesday.

Prince Secondus said in a statement from his media office, signed by Ike Abonyi that the President left the country to United Kingdom for 10 days medical leave to enable the nefarious activities they lined out against democracy be executed in his absence.
