Governor Ortom had earlier today, condemned the invasion of the National Assembly by men of the Nigerian Police Force and the DSS.

Speaking to State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo which lasted an hour, IGP Idris said he was yet to be briefed on the development.

He said the standoff at the NASS complex reached him as a surprise, adding that the police would soon issue a statement in relation to the impasse.

Accountant Manafort admitted that he forged documents
Prosecutors allege that Manafort paid for the costly clothing and other items through wire transfers from the offshore accounts. That was somewhat surprising given that the defense counsel has thrown relatively few questions at prosecution witnesses.

The acting President had on August 7 sacked the Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura with immediate effect, over Tuesday's invasion of the premises of the National Assembly by security operatives.

In a statement by his media aide, Professor Osinbajo described the takeover as unlawful and unauthorised, vowing to ensure everyone involved is disciplined.

Shortly after, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, also arrived, and walked briskly into Osinbajo's office. However, lawmakers were later allowed in while journalists and staff of the assembly were barred. But it turned out there was nothing like that in the offing as no APC senator was in the National Assembly when they were creating the row outside the gate.
