The meeting of the leadership of the National Assembly scheduled for today has been called off as a result of the security situation at the legislative building.
The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yussuff Lasun, told newsmen that with the tense situation at the National Assembly, the meeting was no longer feasible.
Upon arrival at the complex, Department of State Service operatives, who had locked down the National Assembly since 6am, allowed Lasun to drive in.
But, he soon drove out again after meeting briefly with the senators and members keeping vigil at the lobby of the white house.
He added that though his aides already informed him about the development at the complex, he still came for the meeting, and immediately realised that it was no longer feasible.
