The termination of Daura’s appointment comes few hours after security officials stormed the premises of the National Assembly barricading the entrance.

The masked security operatives and officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) arrived at the National Assembly very early on Tuesday morning and prevented lawmakers, members of staff of the National Assembly and journalists from entering the complex.
