The two security chiefs, who arrived Aso Rock at different times, were to update the acting president on security developments including the blockade of the National Assembly by security officials.

The Inspector-General of Police was the first to arrive at about 12.35 p.m. before the arrival of the DSS Director General at about 1.15 p.m.

DAILY POST had reported that the police and operatives of the DSS on Tuesday morning blocked the main gate of the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers and staff from gaining access into the complex.

The security operatives later allowed the lawmakers access into the complex while journalists and other staff were barred.

It’s generally believed that the sack of the DG of DSS may not be unconnected to his role in the Tuesday’s siege of the National Assembly.
