The actual whereabouts of the sacked Alhaji Lawal Daura, Director of State Service, DSS, is still unknown several hours after he was sacked Tuesday by the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
According to reports Daura has been picked up and detained by men of the Nigeria Police Force but the arrest could not be confirmed even as at the time of filing this report.
The police authorities have kept mute on the information that he’s in their custody. Reports in the media had claimed that he was taken into custody by operatives of the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, and was being held at their headquarters at Guzape, Abuja but efforts at confirming the report have not been possible because neither the Force Headquarters nor the police anti-robbery unit could comment on it.
Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, refused to respond to an inquiry on Mr. Daura’s whereabouts. Several calls made to his mobile lines were not picked just as he refused to respond to a text message sent to him.
According to the vanguard the SARS headquarters at Guzape, Abuja, where Mr. Daura is being reportedly detained, there was no unusual security surveillance by the operative to arouse suspicion that he could be there.
