Though the details of of the meeting is still unknown as at the time of filing this report, but recall that acting Osinbajo said the blockade of the National Assembly gates by operatives of the Department of State Services(DSS) was unauthorized and slammed it as a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order.
According to him, the unlawful act which was done without the knowledge of the Presidency is condemnable and completely unacceptable.
A statement issued by Laolu Akande, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, office of the acting president, said that the action of the DSS was not authorised by the presidency.
