JUST IN: Nigeria’s National Assembly Shut Down By Security Operatives
Access into the National Assembly this morning is an Herculean task as all three entry gates have been shut by security operatives, Punch is reporting.
The action is preparatory to President Muhammadu Buhari’s anticipated visit to the National Assembly today to present the estimates of the 2017 budget to senators and members of the House of Representatives.
Members of staff have been denied access and all other organisations rendering services within the complex have been shut out.
Long queues of vehicles and crowds of anxious people are noticed along the entry points.
