Operatives Stop Tambuwal with Tear Gas, Senate Adjourns

The police, SSS and other “security” operatives Thursday prevented the House of Reps from sitting with Aminu Tambuwal as speaker. They fired tear gas everywhere, even as Tambuwal was smuggled in; other House members scaled the fence to gain entrance.

Tambuwal’s offence was that he defected from the ruling PDP to the opposition APC.

Apparently responding to this show of brute force, the Senate adjourned till Tuesday. It invited the IGP Suleiman Abba and the service chiefs (who had been invited for this Thursday) to appear before it then.
