Contrary to claims emerging that the policemen deployed to the National Assembly released canisters of tear-gas within the premises to disperse 'miscreants', THISDAY reports that the canisters were shot in the direction of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal. Our correspondent, who was in the premises when the canisters were shot, said the first tear-gas landed near Tambuwal as he was walking towards the arcade. The second canister descended as he was climbing the stairs, backing the arcade and the third as he was passing through the reception entrance, where Senate President, David Mark had come out to see what was happening.
