Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday condemned siege on National Assembly by the operatives of the State Security Service (SSS).

In a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity in the Office of the Acting President, Mr. Laolu Akande,Osinbajo said the siege was a gross violation of constitutional order, rule of law and all acceptable notions of law and order.

He said the unlawful act, which was done without the knowledge of the Presidency, is condemnable and completely unacceptable.

Osinbajo assured Nigerians that all persons within the law enforcement apparatus who participated in this travesty would be identified and subjected to appropriate disciplinary action.
