Military Jet Hovers Over National Assembly In Abuja

Barely eight days to the resumption of the National Assembly, NASS, a strange military jet was seen hovering over the complex on Monday.

According to security agents attached to the Complex, the jet started its manoeuvres since on Sunday flying almost touching the ground.

Some journalists also noticed the jet at about 12.45 pm and 2.05pm on Monday when it flew so close to the ground that they had to run for cover inside their cars.

No signs of any ceremony at the military arcade in front of the National Assembly Complex as at 10.45am.

This is the first time since inception of this Assembly in 2015 that a military jet is descending so low into the Complex.

The 8th Assembly is expected to commence legislative business next week Tuesday after a long break spanning about eight weeks.

The military has however said people should not panic, adding that it's just a training exercise ahead of independence.
