Heavy protest is currently ongoing at the National Assembly over the siege on the National Assembly by officers of the Department of State Security Services (DSS), NAIJAROKO has learnt.
Earlier today DSS operatives prevented Senators and House of Reps members from gaining access to the National Assembly. It was learned that the move was allegedly part of a plot to impeach the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
