Seiyefa was the director, Institute of Security Studies, Abuja.

Meanwhile, Daily Sun findings revealed that earlier, the acting President summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the sacked DG DSS, Lawal Daura, to explain the circumstances that led to the invasion of the National Assembly by security operatives.

"All lovers of democracy must support him in his decisive action on the unlawful takeover of the National Assembly", Oyetibo, a protégé of the late human rights crusader, Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN), said.

A spokesman for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said in comments on Twitter that DSS head Lawal Musa Daura had been fired.

"We call on the Military, the Nigerian Police, Department of State Security and all other security agencies not to engage in any unconstitutional operations or allow themselves to be dragged into partisan political activities directly or indirectly".

Osinbajo had earlier met with Mr. Seiyefa at the presidential villa shortly after sacking Daura, and directing him to hand over to the most senior official in the service.


The meetings took place separately at Professor Osinbajo's office.

They prevented lawmakers and journalists from gaining access into the premises in what many believe to be a plot to implement the impeachment of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

It is not clear if the meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon will still hold after today's turn of events.

Seiyefa arrived at the presidential villa in Abuja around 4pm on Tuesday.

Saraki was also expected to meet with Mahmoud Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

"The acting President was convinced that the IGP did not mobilize his men to the legislature and that was why he was not sacked along with the DG DSS", the source said.
