President Muhammadu Buhari has returned back to Abuja from London where he spent 16 days.
The Nigerian 75-year-old President, who departed from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on August 3, returned this evening through the same route on Saturday.
He spent 16-days – which translates to 11 working days instead of the 10 working days he had requested in the letter he sent to the National Assembly.
While, President Buhari was away in London, where he is speculated to have gone for medical treatment, the Director General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura was sacked by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, who was Acting President at the time.
Professor Osinbajo, did not seek authorisation from the President before he sacked the spy chief, a top government official told DENISAURUS News.
The Vice President, a former Attorney-General of Lagos state, who directed for the overhaul of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, was castigated this week when a reporter was arrested by the same police unit.
Samuel Ogundipe, had authored a report on the investigation by ibrahim Idris, the Inspector General of Police on the siege on the NASS siege. He was arrested and arraigned for “stealing secret documents.”
A source explained that Professor Osinbajo was worried that the leak of the IGP report on Daura could have come from inside the Villa, hence the decision to keep the Journo from the Premium Times who wrote the story.
