Osinbajo also described the invasion of the National Assembly by the DSS agents as "a gross violation of the constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order". "The action of the DSS is condemnable because it's a desceration of the sanctity of the Parliament. The Acting President is a decent man, he does not tussle for power, there is unanimity on that decision".

"This invasion, coming barely 48 hours after our meeting, is sacrligeous and inimical to the growth of democratic values and ideals because the Parliament is the anchor on which Democracy stands".
