Anger has continued to rise in Nigeria after security forces stormed the National Assembly complex on Tuesday morning and locked opposition Senators and House of Representatives members out.

The plot, according to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, was to forcefully remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who dumped the ruling party last week and joined the opposition party only seven months ahead of a general election.

An opposition governor from Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, described the invasion of the National Assembly by armed security men as “a coup against democracy as well as Nigeria and its people”.

He warned that democracy may be on the brink of collapse in Africa’s most populous country.

“Today is a sad day for Nigeria. It is a sad day for democracy and it is a day that all Nigerians must begin to ask what took us to this ignoble state as country and people,” he said in a statement released by his spokesman.
