Reports reaching us from Abuja have it that officials of the Department of State Security Services, (DSS), the Police as well as the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday morning laid siege to the residence of the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Abuja.
This is coming also after the Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s home was locked down by police officers and his convoy prevented from leaving the premises to attend to the invitation by the Inspector General of Police, Idris K. Ibrahim.
The reason behind their action is unclear at the moment as the officials have reportedly prevented the lawmakers from going out.
Confirming the development, Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kola Ologbodiyan wondered why the security operatives were after the lawmakers.
He tweeted, “Security operatives block Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu,’s residence in Apo, Abuja… Senate President Bukola Saraki already invited by the Police by 8am… Is this a democracy?”
More details later.
