Share This

By Sadiq Umar – Nigeria’s acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has described the unauthorized takeover of the National Assembly complex earlier today as a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order.

Mr. Osinbajo’s condemnation is coming on the heels of the sacking of Director General of State Security Services, Lawal Daura, Tuesday.

According to the acting President, “the unlawful act which was done without the knowledge of the Presidency is condemnable and completely unacceptable,” Mr. Osinbajo said in a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande.

“By this statement, Professor Osinbajo is consequently assuring Nigerians that all persons within the law enforcement apparatus who participated in this travesty will be identified and subjected to appropriate disciplinary action,” the statement added.
