Breaking: Sacked DSS boss, Lawal Daura to remain under House arrest – presidency

ABUJA – THE Presidency Wednesday said that the sacked Director General of the Department of State Services, DSS, Lawal Daura will remain under house arrest.

A presidency ‎source that spoke on condition of anonymity said that shortly after the dismissal of the former DSS boss by the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday, he (Daura) was arrested right inside the presidential Villa, by men of the Nigerian Police Force.

The source also confirmed that Mr. Daura was presently being detained in one of the presidential guests houses at Aso Rock.

He said, “He will remain there until several investigation over certain issues bordering on him are concluded.”
It was reliably gathered that when the sacked DSS DG finished his meeting with Osinbajo on Tuesday after the siege to the National Assembly, he did not follow the normal exit route rather he was secretly whisked away from the Acting President’s office by police officers even without the knowledge of his aides that came with him.

Besides being one of the favourite appointees of President Muhammad Buhari, the sacked DSS boss was accused to have carried out different controversial actions which the government believed were painting it in bad light.

Among such actions were the raid in October on the homes of judges accused of corruption, whom were later not found guilty and the damaging report against the confirmation of the EFCC boss.

Since Daura was booted out, the Acting Chairman of Economic Financial and Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has been meeting with the Acting President.

I remember the outrage created by that raid.

But Daura's downfall reminds one of a similar story in the Bible.
According to the Bible there is nothing new under that sun.

The politics and dynamics of power have not changed in more than 3000 years.

In the analogous case in the Bible, Joab was a very faithful soldier/servant of King David.
From the time David was a young anointed king-in-waiting, running away from incumbent king of the time Saul, Joab was with him.
And Joab was David's sister's son (David's nephew).

Joab contributed in many ways to David's military exploits both as anointed king and as crowned king.

But a time came when David started to notice that Joab was starting to get out of control.

In one instance, David commanded Joab not to kill David's son Absalom in battle, even though that son had gone rogue and wanted to kill David his own father. David was clear that he did not want his son killed. But on the battle field, when Absalom got his huge hair tangled on a tree and hung helplessly there, Joab decided to ignore David's instruction, and killed Absalom.

David cried for his son and later moved on.

But Joab would cross a final line when he disobeyed David's instruction not to kill Abner, Saul's military commander and general.

Joab bore a grudge against Abner for killing Joab's brother Asahel in battle. So, Joab disobeyed David, again, and killed Abner.

David would not forgive this last disobedience, but he did not kill Joab himself. On David's dying bed, David commanded his son Solomon to kill Joab as his first order of priority as soon as David had died and Solomon became king.
Solomon did exactly as David his father commanded on his death bed, and that was exactly how Joab faced justice, at last.

Joab was faithful to David, but he, at a point, started to feel like a god onto himself. And for that, David feared that he may covet Solomon's throne and instructed Solomon to kill him..

The Bible is a book that has chronicled and recorded EVERY human tendencies and issues.
It is the greatest book of wisdom.

There is nothing new under the sun, as the Bible says!
