The All Progressives Congress (APC) has claimed that security agencies foiled Senate President Bukola Saraki’s plan to foment trouble at the National Assembly on Tuesday. This was contained in a statement Yekini Nabena, APC National Publicity Secretary on Wednesday morning. Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) had laid siege at the country’s legislature yesterday.
But Nabena claimed that APC’s “investigations” uncovered that “the timely intervention of the security operatives forestalled the planned violence which could have led to possible deaths, injuries and destruction of property in the National Assembly on Tuesday.” “Why did the Senate President mobilise thugs to the National Assembly who almost lynched Hon. E.J. Agbonayinma, the only APC federal lawmaker present but for the timely intervention of security operatives.
“Why did the Senate President reconvene the National Assembly? Ostensibly as a pre-emptive move to frustrate federal lawmakers move to impeach him.
