Diri arrived INEC office about 11.15 am at a time the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu and some National Commissioners were holding a closed door meeting at the Commission’s Headquarters in Abuja.

He was stopped at the gate and asked to make a u-turn by the stern looking security operation.

Meanwhile the Commission is set to brief journalists on its decision.
