Earlier today, DSS blocked all entry or exit of the National Assembly complex, possibly in a coup to try to impeach the Senate President and his Deputy.
I wonder why the APC Federal Government is bent on impeaching Saraki and Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu when they don't have the number.
These people forget history. Tambuwal was elected Speaker in PDP but he defected to the APC and did not resign.

A serving Senator, Senator Rafiu Ibrahim was being denied access into his office by the DSS. He asks the DSS officials “Has the military taken over?”
Shameful display of tyranny at the NASS. At this point, we can only pray to God to save democracy in our country from the hands of these tyrants.
But I warned! I warned those who brought Buhari in 2015 and I kept warning even after he was elected. #SaveOurDemocracy

Later on, Honourable Boma Goodhead from Rivers State, took turn to confront the masked men blocking the National Assembly.
While President Buhari on an international stage relegated his own wife to the kitchen, living room & the other room, Hon. Boma Goodhead of @OfficialPDPNig displayed why our party will never underestimate the role of Nigerian women in building our nation.

And then, Supporters of the ruling party saying: “Leave the man alone. Leave Bukola Saraki alone… what has he done? This is a coup.”
AgP Yemi Osinbajo has directed the termination of the appointment of the DG of the DSS, Mr. Lawal Musa Daura.

Towards the end of the whole drama, the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki appears at the National Assembly after the failed Legislative Coup with chants of “Oloye!” all over the air!
The heavy presence of armed security men who unnecessarily militarized the National Assembly and harassed legislators and the workers in the complex cannot be justified in a democracy.

So, the whole drama today is all over. Let’s see what they come up with next on the next Episode.
The DSS DG was just a fall guy. Those behind this are still at large and they will try again, but I want to assure the next security Chief that attempts this that even if he is not fired, he will be banned for life from getting a US/UK visa. pic.twitter.com/YY4SkteiW8
