The Northern Leaders and Stakeholders Assembly (NLSA) has described as `destructive’ Tuesday’s siege on National Assembly by operatives of the Department of Security Services (DSS).

Dr Umar Ardo, Secretary, NLSA, in a statement in Abuja, said the National Assembly incident constituted a huge threat to Nigeria’s democracy.

He urged the leadership of the National Assembly to as a matter of urgency reconvene and summon the leadership of the executive to explain the DSS’ action.

Ardo said that disciplinary actions should be applied where necessary as provided for by the constitution.

He said that the position of NLSA was that all Nigerians should protect the nation’s democracy.

Meanwhile, Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, had in a swift reaction, sacked the Lawal Daura, the Director-General, DSS over the unathorised blockage on the National Assembly.

Osinbajo directed him to hand over to the most senior director in the services.
