There is tension at the National Assembly complex as officers of the Department of State Services have barricaded the entrance of the assembly in a perceived bid to aid pro-Buhari Senators to impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
Members of the House of Representatives and staff of the National Assembly are being turned back.
It was learnt that some 30 pro-Buhari Senators had a meeting overnight with the Director General of the SSS, Lawan Daura, to plot the impeachment.
It was also gathered from reliable sources that the senators have planned to elect the senate leader, Ahmed Lawan, as Senate President and Hope Uzodinma as his deputy.
As at the time of filing this report, more police officers are arriving the National Assembly.
Some lawmakers had in past few days insisted Senate President, Bukola Saraki, quit his position having defected from the majority party.
