President Muhammadu Buhari has met with a former Director General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, The Nation is reporting.
The meeting will be the first between Buhari and Daura after his sack by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), then the acting President, over the August 7, 2018 invasion of the National Assembly by hooded operatives of the DSS.
He has since been in detention.
Buhari was out of the country on medical leave at the time of Daura’s sack.
The meeting between the duo, held last weekend at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, according to The Nation, afforded the President the opportunity to speak with Daura on the report of the invasion of the National Assembly by the DSS operatives.
The Nation also reported that the issue of the resurgence of the Boko Haram insurgency in some parts of the North East also came up for discussion.
