Officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC were at the residence of sacked DSS boss, Lawal Daura earlier on Thursday.
Daura’s appointment was terminated by the Ag. President, Yemi Osinbajo over the DSS’ actions on Tuesday when they failed to allow staff of the National Assembly and lawmakers to gain entrance into the premises. He was sacked on Tuesday as the Presidency made a swift reaction to the incident which has gained widespread international condemnation and criticism. Osinbajo’s intervention was praised for its timing and importance at such politically delicate period in Nigeria.
Daura, who has claimed in several channels to have followed “orders from above” before sending his men to block the National Assembly was paid a visit by the EFCC.
Documents were taken away by officials of the anti-graft agency while his home was ransacked in the process.
Recall that Daura was arrested, detained and later released by the Police on Tuesday for his contribution to the breakdown of law and order at the National Assembly.
Several allegations have been steered afterwards with a truckload of those coming at the feet of President Muhammadu Buhari, as he is being accused of tyranny and trying to stifle the opposition with his power.
The Presidency has since denied allegations of any form of involvement incident.
