Detectives investigating the embattled former Director General of the
Department of State Security, DSS, Mr. Lawal Musa Daura, have found a
whooping N21billion, loaded Guns, including sub-machine weapons such as
Uzzi and huge amount of Permanent Voters Card, PVC, at his guest house in
Usama Street, Abuja.
Sources hinted that the eye popping discoveries were made following tip
offs from operatives who had close relationship with the Daura while he
held sway at the agency.
A source privy to the matter alleged that no fewer than 400 assault
rifles, including other small arms weapons and thousands of PVCs belonging
to Niger Republic immigrants, were also found in the house.
The Sacked DSS DG is alleged to be engaged in dealings involving $21
million handed over to him by his predecessor, Mr. Ita Ekpenyong.
“Daura is also facing interrogation over alleged withdrawal of N12.9
billion from Pension Account of the DSS. He was further alleged to have
withdrawn the sum of N1.6 billion from the N2.4 billion account belonging
to the DSS Staff Insurance account by a relation of Daura,” the source
All efforts to confirm the story from top sources proved abortive, as no
one was willing to volunteer information on the startling discovery at the
home of the former DSS boss.
Ekpenyong was interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
(EFCC) headquarters on Thursday in Abuja over how he managed funds
approved by former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki ahead of
the 2015 polls.
