The British High Commission has reacted to Tuesday’s siege at the National Assembly.
The European country stated that it would only accept a democratic process that recognises the rights of Nigerians to participate in election process.
“We are aware of media reports of a situation at the National Assembly this morning. We are closely monitoring the situation and other political developments in Nigeria.
“The United Kingdom supports a process whereby the people of Nigeria can exercise their democratic right to vote and be voted for.
“We favour a free, fair, credible and peaceful process and the independence of institutions, which allow for that,” Joe Abuku, spokesperson for the UK Embassy in Abuja, said in a statement.
He said this while condemning the invasion of the country’s legislative building by the Department of State Security (DSS).
The lawmaker vowed that he and his colleagues (pro-Saraki Senators), would report President Muhamadu Buhari, the DSS, Nigeria Police among others to the international community.
