Department of State Services, DSS, operatives have exited the entrance of the National Assembly with lawmakers now entering freely into the complex,” Chronicle NG reports.
Masked operatives of DSS had earlier barred lawmakers from gaining entrance into the complex without reasons.
Officially, the lawmakers are on recess from 24 July and are expected to reconvene on 25 September 2018, although there have been calls by the executive for the legislators to return to work.
But on Tuesday morning, masked operatives of the DSS mounted the entrance to the National Assembly complex with rumours that the Senate President and his deputy could be impeached.
But within minutes, the DSS operatives allowed lawmakers entrance without citing any reasons for their actions.
A source close to the National Assembly told Chronicle NG that, “I can confirm to you that members are now entering freely as they should.”
“That is the right thing to do while we await whatever explanations of what may have happened.
