BREAKING: NASS Under SSS Siege, Senators React

In what is believe to be an apparent move to ensure the ouster of recently defected Senate President Bukola Saraki, the main entrance of the National Assembly, NASS, has been locked by officers of the State Security Services.

Some senators who were denied entrance into NASS premises Tuesday morning have reacted to the development.

Rafiu Ibrahim, a senator from Kwara state, was first to arrive among the senators.

“We got here this morning to go into our office as usual; I work very early. During recess we do committee works and our own writings. I’m writing a book, so I go in there almost every day,” he said.

“We got here and DSS has taken over all the gates, all entrances to the National Assembly and they said it’s order from above. We asked them why, they said there is no reason. As it is today, it means Nigeria is under siege.”

Ben Murray-Bruce, PDP-Bayelsa, also condemned the situation.

“It has come to our attention that our colleagues cannot go to work after we adjourned for recess.

“I have contacted the UK and US Embassy to revoke the visa of Senator Akpabio or anybody leading this assault on this institution. We will ask them to revoke the visas of their wives and that of their children. They will not be allowed to leave Nigeria to travel to any nation in western Europe and North America,” he said.
