Senate President Wants Security At National Assembly Beefed Up

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan on Tuesday tasked top security officials to beef up the security measures at the National Assembly to avert any threat.

Lawan, who is also the chairman of the National Assembly, disclosed that he has received report of security threat to the Assembly.

Lawan made this disclosure in his opening remarks at an emergency meeting the leadership of the Senate had with top security officials.

"Personally I had a report from the DSS that we had a security threat. Many unknown and uninvited people came or are coming into the National Assembly complex and we felt we shouldn't take this lightly.

"From today we have to find temporary solution to support the security arrangement here. We will find a more permanent solution by the time the entire environment is remodeled," Lawan said.

In attendance were the Director General of the Department of Security Service (DSS) and representatives of the Defence, Police, Civil Defence, Fire Service and other security agencies.
