#NASSUnderSiege: DSS Says Order To Barricade NASS Came 'From Above'
Has Nigeria's democracy being eroded or progress gained in the battle to respect the rule of law being lost?
Nigeria's National Parliament is under siege by operative of the State Security Service (DSS).
The operatives initially prevented security operatives from gaining access to the upper legislative chamber.
The lawmakers confronted the officials and the barricades were removed allowing them gain access to the NASS Complex.
However, they were prevented from entering their offices or meeting rooms.
When asked who gave the directive to lock up the national assembly building the only response given by the DSS officials was;
"ORDER FROM ABOVE".
Bounce News made effort to reach the Director General of the DSS, Lawal Daura but his mobile was has been switched off all day.
Meanwhile, officers of the DSS at NASS are fully armed with live ammunition like they expect to have a face-off with armed herdsmen or re-surging Boko Haram.
Journalists have also been barred from gaining access into the National Assembly Complex with some being threatened by DSS operative to stay out or face their wrath.
Where exactly is the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his depute, Ike Ekweremadu?
Is Nigeria's democracy being threatened by extreme highhandedness?
Is the leadership of the APC PUSHING TO HARD to reclaim control of the nation's legislature?
