The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has written to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, seeking permission to search the residence of the sacked Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura.
The letter was 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” requested that Daura’s house be searched.
The IG recommended that the DSS operatives who partook in the invasion must be also released to the police for questioning.
Idris said the suspect, Daura, confessed in his statement to the police to have deployed operatives to the National Assembly on “a claim of an intelligence report that unauthorized persons were planning to smuggle undisclosed dangerous weapons and incriminating items into the National Assembly.”
Recall that the police had earlier seized his passport, restricting him from leaving the country.
