The battle for the headship of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) got fiercer yesterday as the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, SEC Branch, locked up offices of the headquarters of the Commission over attempts by suspended DG Mounir Gwarzo to resume duties.

As early as 7am, the protesting workers had shut all entry points into SEC headquarters to prevent vested interests from reinstating Gwarzo who had been indicted for abuse of office and corruption.

Gwarzo was also indicted by a House of Representatives Ad-Hoc Committee which investigated his suspension by the former Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun.

Nelson Oleghe, Chairman, Association of Senior Staff Union, SEC Branch said members of the association are happy with the development.

The National Industrial Court (NIC) last Thursday ordered the reinstatement of Gwarzo, the suspended Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), with all his salaries and allowances paid to him.
