Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has terminated the appointment of Department of State Services (DSS) DG Lawal Daura.

Sources said the handing over to Seiyefa was being conducted at the Yellow House headquarters of the agency by the agency's director of administration and logistics as Daura was not available at the ceremony.

"Mr. Seiyefa, who hails from Bayelsa State, was before his new appointment the most senior director in the DSS - Assistant DG".

Although there's no local law requiring him to step down, APC stalwarts insist Saraki must resign since the ruling party still has majority in the Senate and ought to produce the Senate president in line with democratic conventions.

However, Idris was said to have turned down the request, saying he already has enough officers on ground manning the National Assembly.

After meeting with Osinbajo, he left the villa without speaking with reporters.

The presidency in a statement said the obstruction of lawmakers was without its consent.

The National Assembly was on Tuesday morning barricaded by the operatives, temporarily preventing lawmakers and staff from gaining access to their offices.

Seiyefa enlisted into the Nigerian Security Organization (NSO) in 1984 after completing his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme at the School of Islamic and Legal Studies (SILS) Kano.

National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomole, held a crucial meeting with some senators in the party on Tuesday.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has described the invasion as an unlawful act.
