Officials of the Department of State Security (DSS) have blocked the entrance to the national assembly complex in Abuja in an alleged bid to impeach Saraki as Senate President.
According to reports, lawmakers and staff of the National Assembly were being turned back from the premises and gates of the complex, as all entry and exit points are locked to visitors.
Serving Senator Rafiu Ibrahim was heard asking the DSS officials: “has the military taken over?” after he was prevented from gaining access to the national assembly complex.
Meanwhile, according to reliable source from the National Assembly, Tuesday morning’s security seal is part of the grand plot to impeach the seating Senate President, Saraki who defected to the opposition PDP on July 31.
A top ranking source in the National Assembly said: “30 APC senators met with the Director General (DG) of DSS at midnight of Monday, August 6 at the DSS headquarters. The plot is to impeach the senate president and deputy senate president today (August 7th)”
