New acting DSS DG resumes after brief from Osinbajo

The new acting Director General of Department of Security Service (DSS), Mathew Seiyefa, has resumed office, after receiving a brief from the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo.

Seiyefa replaced Lawal Daura who was sacked by Osinbajo, following the blockade of the National Assembly premises by DSS operatives on Tuesday.

The new DSS DG shortly after the removal of Daura from office, arrived the Presidential Villa, Abuja, and met with the acting president for more than 40 minutes.

He refuses to answer questions from the state house correspondents after the meeting.

Lawal Daura was sacked hours after security operatives took over the national assembly complex, in Abuja.

Acting president, Yemi Osinbajo, ordered the termination of the appointment of the DSS Director General, after a meeting with him and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Osinbajo in a statement later, says the take-over of the national assembly is without the knowledge of the presidency.

The acting president says, the take-over was a gross violation of the constitutional order, the rule of law, and the acceptable notion of law and order.

He promised that all those involved in the siege will face disciplinary action.
