Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday blocked the entrance of the NASS complex preventing lawmakers and staff access to the complex.

A statement by the Force Spokesman, acting DCP Jimoh Moshood, Tuesday evening in Abuja, said the force was not informed and had no pre-knowledge of the blockade.

“The force wishes to categorically state that its personnel were not involved in any way whatsoever in the blockade of the National Assembly in the early hours of Tuesday, August 7.

“The Nigeria police force hereby implores the Media and the general Public to disregard in entirety insinuations that police personnel were involved in the blockade as untrue, misleading and a misinformation,” he said.
