Chairman, South East Senate Caucus, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has cried out over the dawn siege on the residences of the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki and the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu by the police and the Department of State Services (DSS).

He made the disclosure this afternoon while speaking with reporters in National Assembly

Abaribe, who called on well-meaning Nigerians and the International community for interventions to save our democracy, said the country is fast cascading to tyranny and fascism.

"This dangerous route is unprecedented in modern democracy. It is a sinister plot to throw the country back to the dark ages of military dictatorship. Too bad for our unity as a country", he said.

Abaribe warned that silence in this circumstance, could sound a death knell on the already challenged unity of Nigeria.

"This is the time to speak up against the directorship and tyranny of executive arm of government against the parliament.

"The legislature is the universally acclaimed bastion and symbol of democracy, so attacking this hallowed institution signals the end to our chequered match to enduring democracy," Abaribe said.
