No money, Incriminating evidence found in lawal daura’s home- Sss

Daily Hint   14/8/2018

The State Security Service (SSS) has denied that huge sums of money and other incriminating materials were found at the homes of its sacked Director General, Lawal Daura.

Videos of such recovery have been circulating with some media organisations, definietly not (Daily Hint) publishing that such recovery was made after Mr Daura’s houses were searched.

The agency, however, said the videos were false.

In a statement distributed for the agency by PR Nigeria, a news agency with links to security agencies, the SSS said “no such recovery operations have been undertaken by the EFCC or any other security agency at DSS’ office or residences of the former DG.”

Mr Daura was sacked by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo last week for his role in the siege by SSS operatives to the National Assembly.

The siege has been condemned by most Nigerians and the international community.

“There is no doubt that different interests have continued to give varied accounts of the incident of last week at the National Assembly. It may, however, be recalled that the Presidency had pledged to carry out a detailed investigation regarding the alleged National Assembly siege,” the SSS said.

 

The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to the circulation of fake information and videos in which several items were said to have been recovered from the Katsina and Abuja homes of its immediate past Director General, Lawal Daura. These non-existent items include:

Twenty One Billion Naira (N21bn) cash; 400 assorted and sophisticated small arms and light weapons/rifles; and Thousands of Permanent Voters Card (PVC) belonging to Niger Republic immigrants.

2. In another video also in circulation, some persons believed to be personnel of a security outfit were seen forcing open safes stocked with money. The security operatives were described as executing a recovery operation at the Katsina home of the former DGSS.

3. Consequently, the Service wishes to inform the public that these videos are false and should be disregarded. So far, no such recovery operations have been undertaken by the EFCC or any other security agency at DSS’ office or residences of the former DG.

4. There is no doubt that different interests have continued to give varied accounts of the incident of last week at the National Assembly. It may, however, be recalled that the Presidency had pledged to carry out a detailed investigation regarding the alleged National Assembly siege. The public is, therefore, advised to exercise restraint in their narration of events and as such, desist from spreading fake news or engaging in activities that may mislead or further cause a breach of the peace as well as pre-empt the outcome of investigations.
