The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has written a letter to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, asking for permission to search the premises of the ex-DSS boss, Ibrahim Daura.
The Director General of the DSS had been sacked by the Acting President after the security agency laid siege on the National Assembly in a move that was called a perversion of democracy.
According to the Punch, the letter, written by Ibrahim Idris, 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,”
The Ex-DSS boss has also been accused of betraying Buhari and being a protector of criminals.
Ibrahim Idris also added that 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.”
Ibrahim Idris’ letter read; “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.”
