The National Assembly complex is currently witnessing pandemonium as men of the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Security Service, this morning stopped the Speaker of the House of Representatives from entering the Assembly Complex.
Mr. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal was however, forcibly taken into the complex by angry lawmakers who protested the treatment meted out to the Speaker. The Speaker had to trek from the gates to the main complex, a distance of over 500 metres.
Several lawmakers were delayed at the gate for more than an hour while the confusion lasted, including the Senate president, David Mark.
An eyewitness at the National Assembly said:
“There is confusion everywhere; people are running helter skelter. Nobody really knows what to do or what the intent is. Journalists had their equipments smashed. It is a terrible situation.”
In a tweet, a former member of the House of Representatives, Dino Melaye said
“Speaker walked from second gate to White House. Members broke the second gate, overpower police and brought the speaker in. Tambuwal tear gassed inside NASS.”
