Sequeira attended school for twelve years. During the liberation struggle against Indonesia he was an employee of the chief of staff of FALINTIL and secretary of Region IV.

Sequeira was the first director of the Archive & Museum of the Timorese Resistance (AMRT) from December 7, 2005 . He has been working with the Fundação Mário Soares (FMS) in Lisbon since August 2002 to build up the archive. After his return in May 2006, he continued to work on the collection of documents before he was sworn in as Deputy Minister of the Interior on July 21, 2006 . He held the office until August 8, 2007. Sequeira then became President of the FALINTIL Veterans Foundation ( Fundação dos Veteranos das Falintil FVF).

From 2012 to 2017, Sequeira was one of the elected national parliament members of the Council of State .

In the parliamentary elections in East Timor in 2017 , Sequeira was elected to the national parliament as a member of the FRETILIN list. On September 15, 2017, he was sworn in as Minister of Defense and Security in the Seventh Government of East Timor , which is why he was constitutionally forced to give up his seat in parliament. As Defense Minister, Sequeira was also a member of the National Security Council . Since the minority government of FRETILIN and PD could not prevail in parliament, President Francisco Guterres dissolved it and called for new elections. In the early election on May 12, 2018, Sequeira was able to return to 20th place on the FRETILIN list in parliament, where FRETILIN is now the strongest opposition party. He is now a member of the Parliamentary Commission on Foreign Affairs, Defense and Security (Commission B). Sequeira's term of office as minister ended when the Eighth Government of East Timor took office on June 22, 2018.

On May 20, 2019, Sequeira received the Ordem de Timor-Leste (Collar). He is also the holder of the Ordem da Guerrilha , 1st degree.
