Some physically challenged persons from the Niger Delta region stormed the National Assembly on Thursday morning.
It was gathered that they lay siege to the National Assembly Complex in Abuja to protest what they described as neglect by their representatives in the National Assembly.
The physically challenged persons were said to force themselves inside the National Assembly Complex despite unwillingness of the security operatives at the NASS gate to allow them gain access into the building.
It was reported that security aides of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, hurriedly moved away his official vehicles parked at the entrance of the Senate new wing.
The spokesperson for the physically challenged persons, Amos Etim, explained that they arrived at the National Assembly from the various states of Niger Delta to demand their rights from their representatives as they claimed to be denied of their rights despite being educated.
However, the leadership of the National Assembly led by the Senate Deputy Whip, Sabi Abdullahi, and some Senators from the Niger Delta region later came out to address them.
