Nigerian authorities ordered an immediate evacuation of the National Assembly Today

Security agents asked lawmakers and other staffers to leave the sprawling complex in central Abuja after reports that an explosive material had been planted in the building. The claims were not immediately confirmed.

The National Assembly is located within the Three Arms Zone, Nigeria’s most fortified district, which lies a short distance from Nyanya, the scene of Monday’s bombing.
