Police boss Ibrahim Idris has written to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo seeking permission to search the home of the fired Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura.
Concise News learned that the Inspector General of Police made the request in an interim report on the incident to the stand-in president.
Daura was sacked by the acting president and immediately arrested for questioning over the invasion of the National Assembly complex by operatives of the DSS.
In the report, titled, “Interim Investigation Report on Criminal Conspiracy to wit trespass, intimidation and unlawful invasion of National Assembly complex with intent likely to cause breach of public peace,” Idris recommended that the DSS operatives who carried out blockade must be also released to the police for questioning.
Idris said the suspect, Daura, confessed in his statement to the police to have ordered operatives to the National Assembly on “a claim of an intelligence report that unauthorised persons were planning to smuggle undisclosed dangerous weapons and incriminating items into the National Assembly.”
He said, ”I write to most respectfully appraise Your Excellency that following a petition from your esteemed office to investigate and report findings against Lawal Daura, the sacked DG, DSS, a team of cracked operatives headed by Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar, were deployed and take the suspects into custody for interrogation and investigation.
“It was reported that Daura did conspire with his operatives wearing hood and mask to invade the National Assembly complex. They barricaded the road to the assembly and intimidated members of the National Assembly and workers by forcefully preventing them from performing their legitimate and constitutional duties, thereby committing a crime with intent to incite and wipe up sentiments against the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“The principal suspect, Lawal Daura, was formally arrested and interrogated in line with the allegation made against him.”
