Physically challenged persons protest neglect, invade National Assembly Complex
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Scores of physically challenged persons from the Niger Delta region are on rampage at the National Assembly.
The physically challenged persons besieged the National Assembly Complex in Abuja on Thursday morning and forced themselves inside the National Assembly Complex despite resistance by security operatives at the NASS gate to protest what they termed ‘neglect by their representatives in the National Assembly’.
Security aides of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, hurriedly moved away his official vehicles parked at the entrance of the Senate new wing, PUNCH reported.
The spokesperson for the physically challenged persons, Amos Etim, said they arrived at the National Assembly from the various states of Niger Delta to demand their rights from their representatives.
They claimed that they were being denied their rights despite being educated.
One of them fainted and they are trying to revive him as of the time of filing this report.
