The entrance of the National Assembly was this morning barricaded by armed Officers of the Department of State Services over a perceived bid to aid pro-Buhari Senators impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
According to report, members of the House of Representatives and staff of the National Assembly are being turned back. It was learnt that some 30 pro-Buhari Senators had a meeting overnight with the director general of the SSS, Lawan Daura, to plot the impeachment.
It was also gathered that the senators have planned to elect the senate leader, Ahmed Lawan, as Senate President and Hope Uzodinma as his deputy. Some lawmakers had in past few days insisted Senate President, Bukola Saraki, quit his position having defected from the majority party.
