A new twist has been added to Tuesday’s invasion of the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS).
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Wednesday, accused Senate President, Bukola Saraki of sponsoring thugs to forment trouble.
According to the party, it was the timely intervention of the security agencies that averted what could have led to violent bloodletting.
The APC which said it had investigated the circumstances surrounding Tuesday’s invasion said: “our investigations have now uncovered the sinister plot hatched by the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki to foment violence in the legislative chamber all in a bid to stop his impeachment”.
The ruling party, in a statement issued by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said investigation uncovered and noted the following: “We are now aware 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.
