Daura

FORMER Military Administrator of Kaduna state, Colonel Dangiwa Umar has said the action taken by the Acting President Yemi Osibanjo to place the former Director General of Directorate for State Service (DSS), Lawal Daura under house arrest should not stop half way but rather it should be investigated in order to safeguard our democracy.

 

Dangiwa in a statement he tilted, “Dismissal of Alh Lawal Daura DG DSS, Not a minute too soon “issued to news press on Friday said in the interest of democracy and to guard against unexpected threats and conspiracies, the action taken against the embattled former DG should not stop halfway.

‘The government should seek to discover the motives as well as the explanation for some of those crazy manoeuvres, many of which simply beggars belief.

The questions according to the former governor should include the following: Where and in what condition are all the assets handed over to Lawal Daura by the immediate past DG, DSS, Mr. Ita Ekpenyong?, What are the reasons why Lawal Daura deployed DSS operatives and prevented EFCC personnel from searching the residences of former DG, DSS, Mr Ekpenyong and former DG, NIA, Mr Oke? and What is the explanation for the raid on the farm belonging to Ibrahim Magu, Chairman, EFCC, which raid led to loss of lives?

Other questions that beg for answers are Was it not true that Lawal Daura moved to seize and appropriate over forty-three million US dollar NIA funds if he was not prevented from doing so by the National Security Adviser?

Why did Lawal Daura continuously and in blatant defiance of the President sent false reports to the Nigerian Senate that frustrated the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as substantive Chairman of the EFCC? and Why did he continue to ignore court orders allowing several people detained by him to be released on bail?

The statement read in part: Without a doubt, the summary dismissal, last week, of Alhaji Lawal Daura, Director-General, Department, State Security, came as a big surprise to many people. It seemed to contradict the world order.

“In the last three years, Lawal Daura had marched from one audacious act of impunity to another; had rudely defied the President, had routinely ignored court orders and seemed all but successful in curving out, for himself, a government within a government in Nigeria.

“There was hardly any observer of the turbulent Nigerian political scene over the last several years who still believed that Lawal Daura was subject to any laws not to speak of an official code of behaviour.

“But on Thursday, the 7th of August, 2018, Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo signed a two-paragraph letter telling Lawal Daura that he has been dismissed from office. Not only that, Professor Osinbajo also ordered Lawal Daura be arrested and remanded in police custody.

“Given all the distress created by the actions of Lawal Daura and those caused through his refusal to act, the decision to sack him did not come a moment too soon.

“And yet, in the interest of our democracy, in order to guard against unexpected threats and conspiracies, the action taken by the acting President must not stop halfway.

“The government should seek to discover the motives as well as the explanation for some of those crazy maneuvers, many of which simply beggars belief.

The questions should include the following:

A. Where and in what condition are all the assets handed over to Lawal Daura by the immediate past D-G , SS, Mr. Ita Ekpenyong?

B. What are the reasons why Lawal Daura deployed SS operatives and prevented EFCC personnel from searching the residences of former D-G, SS, Mr Ekpenyong and former D-G, NIA, Mr Oke?

C. What is the explanation for the raid on the farm belonging to Ibrahim Magu, Chairman, EFCC, which raid led to loss of live?

D. Was it not true that Lawal Daura moved to seize and appropriate over fourty three million US dollar NIA funds if he was not prevented from doing so by the National Security Adviser?

E. Why did Lawal Daura continuously and in blatant defiance of the President sent false reports to the Nigerian Senate that frustrated the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as substantive Chairman of the EFCC?

F. Why did he continue to ignore court orders allowing several people detained by him to be released on bail?
