Senator Ben Bruce on Tuesday condemned the invasion of the National Assembly by security agencies.
Speaking to newsmen, Bruce described what was happening as “a coup”.
“You can all see what is happening. Please get me names and photographs of any of the security agents you see. Let no one test me or this institution”, he said.
“And for all those behind this, the anti-democratic forces, we will report all of them to embassies in Nigeria. I am in touch with them already and they are waiting.
Meanwhile, the crowd at the entrance of the country’s legislative complex is increasing.
More staff and aides to lawmakers have been arriving but cannot gain access.
The siege is alleged to be part of the plot to effect a change of the Senate leadership.
