  • Senator Akpabio with President Buhari in London

Senator Ibrahim, who is a member of the Pro-Saraki group, also protested the invasion of the National Assembly by officers of the Department of State Services, DSS, and the Police Force.

He is Matthew Benabafa Seiyefa, who until his appointment was the director in charge of the Institute of Security Studies (ISS), an institution established in 2005 as the cardinal training institution for the SSS.

The acting DG, an indigene of Bayelsa State, was director of operations between 2007 and 2010 when Afakriya Gadzama ran the agency.

With about 34 years of experience, Seiyefa has served in different capacities, including the State Director in Osun, Akwa Ibom, and the Lagos States.

The lawmaker made the allegation in an interview this morning at the National Assembly in Abuja.

USA revives sanctions to hurt Iran economy
But the U.S. sanctions strategy has several weak spots, especially a reluctance by Europe and China to curtail business with Iran. Some protesters have shouted "Mullahs get lost!" and "Death to the dictator!" the semi-official Fars news agency has reported.

The APC had reportedly gathered earlier in the day at the Sheraton Hotel, but shifted base when they discovered that journalists were at the hotel awaiting them when they arrived.

"We urge Nigerians and the worldwide community to condemn this illegal invasion of the National Assembly complex and the attempt to asphyxiate the legislature as undemocratic, uncivilized and irresponsible", said Saraki in a tweet.

The new DSS boss who came to the Presidential villa Abuja, in an SUV vehicle was later chauffeured in a different auto, a Peugeot 508 model with Lagos registration number: AAA 961 BB as he left.

Officers of the Department Of State Services (DSS), had stormed the National Assembly in the early hours of Tuesday, barricading the entrance and preventing lawmakers from entering.

Buhari plans to seek a second term in the February 2019 presidential vote but the loss of influential figures and divisions within his party could cost him support from powerful patronage networks and among voters.
