Mr Osinbajo had on Tuesday sacked the Director General of the State Security Service (SSS), Lawal Daura, with immediate effect, over Tuesday's invasion of the premises of the National Assembly by security operatives.

Daura's termination was announced by Osinbajo's spokesperson, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.

"Mr. Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer if the State Security Service until further notice".

Nigeria's acting president Yemi Osinbajo has fired the head of the country's intelligence agency, according to Osinbajo's aide, after masked security men prevented lawmakers and staff from entering the country's parliament earlier in the day.

His newest tweet is the closest he has come to admitting the meeting's objective was to seek dirt on Clinton from the Russians. Instead Veselnitskaya discussed sanctions placed on Russian Federation under the Magnitsky Act , which affected her clients.

The police have arrested and detained the sacked Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS) Lawal Daura.

The party in a statement said: "The Presidency's sack of Daura was a damage-control stunt and a knee-jerk gimmick which came as a response to the national and worldwide outcry against the armed invasion of our legislature by security agents as directed by the Buhari Presidency".

The siege is believed to have been targeted at Senate President Bukola Saraki to allow his removal from office while senators opposed to him would be allowed in.

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.
