Prince Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has vehemently condemned the siege at the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday.
Secondus also accused President Muhammadu Buhari of hiding in London to plot the undermining of democracy in Nigeria.
He further asked the United Kingdom to expel President Buhari from the country, saying that he (Buhari) planned the siege from there.
According to reports, the incident was part of the plan to sack Senate President Bukola Saraki from officer following his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Secondus in a statement signed by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, asked the UK not to allow its environment turn into a haven for anti-democracy conspirators. He noted that the plan was made when Senator Godswill Akpabio visited Buhari in London on Sunday.
The incident yesterday led to the sack of Mr. Lawal Daura, the Director General of the DSS.
Acting President Osinbajo who condemned the incident, saying that it was done without the knowledge of the presidency, immediately appointed the most senior officer in the DSS, Mr. Matthew Benabafa Seiyefa, to take over from Mr. Daura.
“When an executive arm in a democratic setting muscles up other arms of government, the correct name for such administration is autocracy and dictatorship,” Secondus said.
“Nigerians and international community have continuously watched this administration, harass and intimidate the legislature and judiciary as well as others in opposition in their bid to create a dictatorial regime.
“All over the World, the parliament is the bastion of democracy and rule of law anybody not willing to alien himself to them is trying to create anarchy in the land,” he said.
“We are aware that when a regime exhausts idea of what to do and loses the legitimacy that brought it to power, it could be dangerous like a bull in China shop. But truth is that Nigeria will survive this regime and laugh last.”
