Members of staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday barricaded the entrance of the commission's headquarters to prevent Ms. Arumah Oteh, from entering the building.

The protesting members of staff told LEADERSHIP that she plans to resume office today.

Oteh who is the erstwhile Director General of the SEC had been sent on compulsory leave in June in the wake of an investigation into the near-collapse of the country's capital market launched by the House of Representatives.
