The gates of the National Assembly complex have been thrown open after hours of siege by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

As early as 6:00am, DSS officials were at the National Assembly gates to prevent the entry of lawmakers, staff and journalists into the complex.

Afterwards, lawmakers were allowed into the complex, but staff and journalists were still barred.

Following the sacking of DSS DG Lawal Daura by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, DSS operatives were seen leaving the National Assembly premises.
