The Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Mr. Abdulrazak Namdas, confirmed that of Dogara and Lasun in an interview with Punch.

Namdas said the Department of State Services has reduced the number of its operatives attached to both men.

He said, “Yes, the development we have is that they have reduced the Speaker’s DSS operatives. They also reduced the operatives attached to the Deputy Speaker.

“They have not offered any explanations for this action.”

The exercise may not be unconnected to the ongoing power play between the federal government led-executive and the National Assembly.
