Security Beefed Up at NASS Ahead of House's Special Session

National Assembly Complex, Abuja
As the House of Representatives gears up to hold a special session to consider President Goodluck Jonathan's request to extend the emergency rule‎ in three north-eastern States of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe hit by the Boko Haram insurgency‎, security has been upgraded at the precinct of the parliament.

‎This is as the  Department of State Services (DSS)‎ and the office of National Assembly's Sergeant-at-Arms‎ assured that  they were poised to tackle any unforeseen security breach.

A senior officer of the DSS attached to the National Assembly told newsmen: "The DSS is ‎here to ensure order and security of lives and property. We are ready to ensure that parliamentary activities tomorrow (today) go on safely and hitch-free."

He however declined comment on whether the same security cover‎ will be extended to the House Speaker, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal. "I am not permitted to speak on that," he said.
