Ex-DG DSS Not In SARS; Buhari, Osinbajo Behind Plot —Fani-Kayode
The former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode has categorically stated that sacked Director General of the Department of State Security [DSS], Mr. Lawal Daura was ‘not taken to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad [SARS] neither is he in any other police custody’.
Mr. Fani-Kayode stated this on his Twitter handle, adding that “something frightful is brewing in our country and we must all be prayerful and vigilant”.
I can confirm that it is not true that Daura was taken to SARS. It is not true that he is in police custody. It is not true that he has been disgraced and humiliated. I can also confirm that something frightful is brewing in our country and we must all be prayerful and vigilant.

Also, in a short memo he sent to ElombahNews on Wednesday, the former Aviation Minister raised doubts about the involvement of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in the “attempted coup” that took place yesterday at the National Assembly.
“If you honestly believe that President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo did not have a hand in the attempted coup that took place yesterday at the National Assembly then you need a lesson in what the British call “real politik”.
“When the whole thing backfired they made Lawal Daura, the DG of the DSS, the expendable fall guy. They made him carry the can alone and they sacked him.”
On the real activities behind the scenes at the National Assembly, meanwhile, he said:
“This morning the government’s foot soldiers and media handlers have put out two narratives about yesterday’s sordid events.
“The first is that Lawal Daura acted on his own and without any orders from the Presidency.
“The second is that Daura and Senate President Bukola Saraki plotted the whole affair and that they were working together to discredit and pull down the Buhari administration.
“Both narratives are equally asinine. They are childish tales best suited for dullards and simpletons.
“They are best reserved for the village idiot. Only an undiscerning and inexperienced fool would believe them.”
According to him, “the truth about yesterday’s events (who did what, who said what and who knew what) will eventually come out.
“When it does Nigerians will be shocked and more heads will roll,” he concluded.
