Osinbajo sacks Lawal Daura DG DSS

Hooded armed men from the police and Department of State Service (DSS) blocked access to the two chambers - the Senate and House of Representatives - on Tuesday morning, preventing lawmakers, workers, journalists and other visitors from entering.

Lawal Musa Daura, was also at the meeting.

Before his termination, Osinbajo summoned Daura to the Presidential Villa and met with him after his arrival around 1:15pm, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He said: "I can authoritatively tell you that those senators behind the desecration of the National Assembly collected $1m each to impeach the Senate President and his Deputy".

A senior aide to Senate President Bukola Saraki was among a number of people who tweeted pictures and video from outside the National Assembly building.
