Senate President, David Mark, Orders Immediate Closure Of National Assembly Till Tuesday

Speaker Of House Of Reps Tear Gassed
The National Assembly has been shut down after all hell broke loose at the premises following the decision by policemen and other security operatives to stop the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, from gaining access.
Senate President, David Mark, during plenary, announces the shutting down of the National Assembly till Tuesday Though the Speaker eventually gained entrance into the complex, other lawmakers had to scale a fence to get into the complex. Thursday’s resumption was to deliberate on a single agenda, which is “Consideration of Mr.President’s request for extension of the existing State of Emergency”, according to an earlier statement by the Speaker. The Inspector General of Police has also been summoned to explain the action of the security operatives.
Below are pictures of lawmakers jumping the fence to gain access into the national assembly

For me, this is the highest level of impunity and total disgrace to our dear nation...
