The management of the National Assembly Complex, has raised an alarm that terrorists may strike at the Complex.
A top management Official of the Complex said: “Yes! We have this dangerous intelligence report that the National Assembly may be a victim of terrorist attack, and we are not joking with it.”
The Official stated that the way strange and very suspicious looking persons thronged the National Assembly Complex in recent times is worrisome.
He said that many of the strange persons, if confronted at the gates of the Complex, were quick to claim being Constituents of Lawmakers.
The Official decried that the situation had overstretched the security architecture at the National Assembly.
He noted that though several steps are being taken, many Stakeholders are not showing the needed co-operation.
Contacted, the Director, Public Affairs, National Assembly Complex, Yahaya Dan-Zaria, also expressed concerns over the situation, noting however, that steps are being taken to address it.
A Security sub-Committee set up by the Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Ataba Sani Omolori, had recommended among other things, that “an arms bearing elite force be established for the National Assembly”.
