Sometimes you certainly don't know prophets when you see them. 

God can speak through any vessel He deems fit at the time and Dino Melaye could just fit into that picture of a prophet. 

Did he see this coming? Yes! The take over of the National Assembly by the Department of State Services (DSS). 

He has held series of prayer sessions on his Twitter page and prayed like a fire fire prayer worrier.

On Tuesday, the clarion call to defend the nation's democracy is being shouted from the top of the mountain - the echelon of law making - to the valley - the common man of the street.

Senator Melaye himself wrote again: "Democracy under attack. Nigerians must defend democracy. We will not allow antidemocratic forces to prevail.

"CNA Administrative head of the National Assembly stopped from entering the NASS. Impunity taken too far". 

In the midst of the tension at the National Assembly, a member of the House of Representatives, Boma Godhead, highlighted how Nigerians should now seek this defence that appear to have gone beyond human power or the arm of flesh.

She sought God's intervention in the matter that overwhelmed lawmakers.

"God will surely defend this democracy," she said.
