Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the DSS until further notice.
Mr. Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, said in a terse statement in Abuja on Tuesday that Daura had been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the DSS until further notice.
Akande said that the Acting President described the unauthorized takeover of the National Assembly complex earlier on Tuesday as a gross violation of the constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order.
