Here's a quick recap of what was hot on social media today, August 7:
Mask-wearing officers, mainly of the State Security Service, blocked the entrance to the National Assembly from early hours of Tuesday and left the assembly gate at 2:49 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
The armed men had earlier told senators and journalists that they were acting on ‘order from above’.
The senators who left the assembly complex earlier, were mainly of the opposition party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Many senators of the ruling, All Progressive Congress (APC) were not at the National Assembly on Tuesday amidst reports they were planning the removal of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, directed the sack of the Director General, State Security Service, Lawal Daura.
“Mr. Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice,” Laolu Akande, Mr Osinbajo’s spokesperson said in a statement.
The police and operatives of the SSS early on Tuesday, blocked the main gate of the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers and staff from gaining access into the complex.
The security operatives, however, later allowed the lawmakers access into the complex while journalists and other staff were barred.
As a start, I have directed that the appointment of the DG of the DSS, Mr. Lawal Daura be terminated.— Prof Yemi Osinbajo (@ProfOsinbajo) August 7, 2018
