  • BREAKING: Osinbajo sacks DSS Boss, Lawal Daura

Similarly, two Lagos-based lawyers, Messrs Wahab Shittu and Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, hailed Osinbajo for his decisive action on the DSS invasion of the National Assembly complex.

Images of the blockade were shared widely on social media.

Later in the day, Buhari's office denied authorising the move, which comes amid a surge of tension between the president and his political rivals.

Sequel to Daura's summary dismissal, Osinbajo approved the appointment of Mr. Matthew Seiyefa as the Acting DG of the DSS.

In a statement signed by his spokesman, Laolu Akande today, Osinbajo said the act is a gross violation of constitutional order and perpetrators would be fished out and punished.

He left the Villa at about 5:05 p.m. surrounded by security personnel attached to the presidential Villa.
