Acting President , Yemi Osinbajo , had earlier met behind closed doors with Seiyefa who, until his appointment , was the most senior director in the DSS.
The meeting was held inside Osinbajo ’ s office at the Presidential Villa , Abuja .
The appointment became necessary as the erstwhile DG , Lawal Daura , was sacked in the wake of the invasion of the National Assembly by security operatives on Tuesday morning, under Daura’ s directive.
The Presidency denied sending Daura on the assignment , and went ahead to sack the erstwhile DSS helmsman .
Osinbajo had , while terminating Daura’ s appointment , asked him to hand over to the most senior official in the agency.
Seiyefa , from Bayelsa State, arrived the Presidential Villa in an official Sports Utility Vehicle at about 4 pm .
He was seen clutching an office file as he made his way into Osinbajo ’ s office . Shortly after his arrival , the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu , also arrived .
Magu , however , left before Seiyefa at 4 . 40 pm without talking to State House Correspondents .
