DSS Invasion: Saraki Tells Buhari To Set Up Neutral Investigation Of National Assembly Invasion
The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to set up an independent investigation into the recent invasion of the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
DSS operatives took over the National Assembly complex early on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, and prevented lawmakers and journalists from gaining access into the premises in what many believed to be a plot to implement Saraki’s impeachment.
Many Nigerians, especially in the opposition, have called on the federal government to set up an independent inquiry into the events of the invasion, and Saraki has once again called on the president to look into the “assault on our democracy”.
Taking to his Twitter account (@bukolasaraki) on Tuesday, August 14, he posted, “The very serious questions about last Tuesday’s siege on the National Assembly can only be answered through a thorough and neutral investigation.
“I call on Mr. President to immediately institute an independent judicial panel of inquiry to look into that assault on our democracy.”
