The most senior official in the Department of State Service (DSS), Matthew Seiyefa has been confirmed as the acting Director General of DSS following the exit of Lawal Musa Daura.

In a statement by his media aide, Professor Osinbajo described the takeover as unlawful and unauthorised, vowing to ensure everyone involved is disciplined.

The sacked DSS boss had earlier met behind closed door with the acting president with the IGP Idris and the Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari, in attendance.
