Sources said that the alleged meeting was held around 12:30 am in Abuja.

The lawmakers were said to have allegedly met with Mamman Daura, DG of the DSS.

The source added that as part of the plot, Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan (Yobe North) will be picked as Senate President while Hope Uzodinma (Imo West) will emerge as his deputy.

The report had it that Saraki and Dogara fixed an emergency meeting for 12:00 noon on Tuesday at the National Assembly.
