But shortly after, the Acting President ordered the immediate sack of the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Musa Daura. He was also the Director, Institute of Security Studies, Abuja.

Seiyefa hails from Bayelsa State.

Security operatives comprising men of the Department State Services (DSS) and the Nigerian Police, yesterday blocked all entry or exit from the National Assembly.

The Acting President condemned the takeover of the National Assembly complex, describing it as "a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order".

A top source quoted by the report said: "What the IGP told Daura was that he had enough police officers and men now manning the NASS and did not need to deploy more personnel there".

Daura has since been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice.

Gates testified that he and Manafort had 15 foreign accounts they did not report to the USA government, and knew that was illegal. Under cross examination, she said at the time she believed Manafort was directing Gates' actions and "knew what was going on".

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

Akpabio's resignation is seen as a move to force Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign from his office following his defection from the ruling party to the PDP.

A Reuters witness said security agents, some of whom were masked, then allowed lawmakers to enter but continued to bar government agents and journalists.

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

"That was the explanation, which the IGP also tendered to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, who summoned both Daura and Idris to the Villa to explain their roles in the siege on the NASS".
