DSS DG Lawal Daura Denies Collecting N4bn From PDP In Akwa Ibom, Abia, Rivers And Taraba

The Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, has denied the allegation that he collected N4bn from the Peoples Democratic Party’s governors of Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Abia and Taraba states to influence the judgment of the Supreme Court in their favour in the recently decided electoral cases by the apex court.

He said this while the service paraded three suspects at the DSS headquarters in Abuja today.

The suspects were said to have made the allegation during a telephone conversation.

The suspects, Usman Ahmed Danmallam and Nura Shehu Lawal Giwa (aka Marafan Zazzau) were arrested on February 17, 2016 at Unguwar Sarki in Kaduna North Local Government of Kaduna State, while Hussaini Monguno (aka Colonel) was arrested in Abuja.

While parading the suspects in Abuja, an operative of the Service, Mr. Abdullahi Garba, said the suspects were also meant to misinform the President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian public that the DSS DG had acquired choice properties in Maitama and Asokoro areas of Abuja.
