Nigeria's acting leader says parliament blockade was unacceptable, unauthorised

ABUJA, Aug 7 (Reuters) - A blockade of Nigeria’s parliament on Tuesday by security forces that prevented lawmakers from entering was carried out without the presidency’s knowledge, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo said.

The “unauthorised takeover of the National Assembly” was “completely unacceptable”, he said in a statement. (Reporting by Felix Onuah; Writing by Alexis Akwagyiram; editing by John Stonestreet)
