Labour Union protesters pull down national assembly’s gate and force their way into the premises in Abuja
Members of organized labour who are currently protesting in Abuja have forcefully pulled down the main gate of the National Assembly to gain entry into the complex.
Armed policemen stationed at the entrance had locked the gate to prevent the protesters from gaining access to the building.
However, after an alteration between the protesters and security agents, the protesters pulled down the main gate of the complex. The security agents were overpowered by the surging crowd.
The protesters are currently heading to the second gate of the building and have vowed to also pull it down.
