Security Officials Storm National Assembly
Written by darling on August 7, 2018
Security officials have stormed the premises of the National Assembly.
The masked security operatives and officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) arrived at the National Assembly very early on
Tuesday morning and barricading the entrance to the complex.
Lawmakers and members of staff
of the National Assembly were prevented from entering the premises.
Journalists were also barred from entering the complex as a result of what the DSS allegedly said is an order “from above.”
Channels Television Correspondent, Linda Akhigbe, reports that the masked security operatives were hostile to journalists as they seized the phone of one of the journalists covering the National Assembly.
The lawmakers alleged that the move by the security is an attempt to aid the impeachment of Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu.
