The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, has exonerated the Nigeria Police Force from today’s blockage of the National Assembly (NASS) by security operatives.
Idris stated this after a closed door meeting with the acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa today. He said the blockage of the NASS complex was a surprise to him, adding that the police would soon issue a statement on the incident.
Osinbajo had earlier today sacked the Director General, Department of State Service, Lawal Daura with immediate effect, over the invasion of the premises of the National Assembly.
The acting President had condemned the unauthorized takeover of the National Assembly complex, describing it as “a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order.’’
