Drama as anti-graft protesters besiege NASS … Police lock gates



Anti-corruption protesters stormed the National Assembly on Tuesday in Abuja to express their support for the ongoing crusade against graft by the Federal Government, but they were prevented from entering the NASS premises.

The policemen at the NASS entrance, on sighting the surging protesters, quickly locked the gates and informed the youths that they would not be allowed to enter the complex.

Unperturbed by the hostile treatment, the campaigners under the auspices of the National Support Groups for Good Governance, sang and waved large banners at lawmakers and visitors entering the NASS grounds.

After waiting for about two hours, Senator Barnabas Gemade, met with the protest leaders and assured them of the support of the lawmakers for the anti-graft campaign of the Federal Government.Punch
