#SaveOurDemocracy trends on Nigerian social media following DSS invasion of the National Assembly



This morning, masked and armed operatives of the DSS took over the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers from having access into the National Assembly.


The lawmakers went on a recess that would lapse at the end of September after 15 senators including Dino Melaye defected from APC to PDP.


Though some of the lawmakers have now managed to gain entrance and access to the offices, Nigerians on twitter aren’t happy with the development and they are reacting with the hashtag, ‘#SaveOurDemocracy’.



Buhari is on vacation and Osinbajo being a lawyer is the acting yet the National Assembly is under siege by DSS. We have lost Nigeria finally to APC. Buhari wants to stay Clean and Osinbajo used. democracy destroyers.

The NASS Complex has been barricaded and surrounded by DSS agents preventing lawmakers from entering their offices. This makes no sense, there is no excuse for this. Say no to tyranny.

The only people that will vote for these tyrants destroying Nigeria’s Democracy in 2019 are those who hate Nigeria. Nigeria must be rescued from tyranny in 2019.

I see a lot of journalists unlooking what’s happening at the National Assembly today. I don’t blame them.

There have been lots if harrassment and arrests of journalists by this Government, and most Nigerians have not come out to protest.


Dear Pastor @PastorEAAdeboye

Behold what Nigeria has turned into with your spiritual son as the acting President.

He’s a Pastor! You ordained him.

He’s a lawyer but he breaks the law of the land.

Finally he’s a tyrant!

Did you teach him all these?

Sen. Rafiu Ibrahim@rafiuibrahim

I was just barred by fully armed, masked officers of the DSS from entering the National Assembly (@nassnigeria). “We’re acting on the order from above,” I was told by officers laying siege on the Assembly. All entrances BLOCKED.

Democracy is on siege! @UN.

Bye Bye to Democracy in Nigeria under Buhari.

He was the same Man who truncated Democracy in 1983 through Military apparatus and now using DSS to do same now.

Bolanle. C (Ph.D)🇳🇬@bolanle_cole

Am using this medium to call on d General Overseer of Redeemed Christain church of God, @PastorEAAdeboye to call Pastor Yemi Osinbajo to order now.

He is acting president who want to collapse our democracy.

He is a disgrace to ur Ministry sir & Christians.


Buhari has destroyed everything democracy stands for Nigeria! Our lawmakers no longer have access to the National Assembly. They’re being prevented by men of the DSS. This is purely an assault on our democracy. @adeyanjudeji @henryshield @segalink @AJEnglish

More Senators arriving the National Assembly & also not allowed to enter.

Senator Ben-Marray Bruce speaking on the invasion of National Assembly:

“We’re being invaded by state security.”

Bolanle. C (Ph.D)🇳🇬@bolanle_cole

The hypocrisy in his heart forced him to UK and enforced the DSS to evade the national assembly and impeach the senate President and deputy.

This era shall surely pass.


The President is on vacation and the Vice President being a lawyer is the acting President yet the National Assembly is under siege by DSS. We have lost Nigeria. There’s no difference between Buhari and Osinbajo. They both are democracy destroyers. @segalink
