Sacked DSS boss Daura still in custody, does not know what the presidency has for him

New report has emerged concerning the former national security adviser, Lawal Daura, who was sacked by then acting president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.

The Nation reports that although Daura remains in custody, he has been allowed access to his wives and some associates.

It was reported that the former DSS boss is awaiting President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision on him.

A source said: “The former DG is still in a safe house but now with access to his wives, children and associates. He does not know what the presidency has for him. He is awaiting President Buhari’s decision.

“His ultimate desire is to let the President and Nigerians hear his own side of what really transpired on August 7. He is desirous of freedom now. He wants to return to his house.

“There is, however, an uneasy calm in government circle on how the President will resolve the matter. I think he is awaiting a brief from the VP on IGP’s report.

"All officials, including ministers, are avoiding talking on Daura to avoid being accused of taking sides. We are all divided on this case but we are keeping our opinions to ourselves. We do not know the disposition of the president.”

Meanwhile, a close associate of Lawal Daura, the sacked director general of the Department of State Service (DSS), has reportedly disclosed that the siege on the National Assembly was conducted through a collective process which included the involvement of principal officers of sister agencies.
