Protesters have pulled down the first gate of the National Assembly complex in Abuja and forced their way into the premises.
The Nation reports that the Presidents of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) are leading the anti – poor and subsidy removal protest in Abuja on Wednesday.
In their hundreds, the protesters convened at the Unity Fountain from where they marched to the NASS Complex as early as 7am.
The protesters asked security operatives stationed at the legislative building to open the gate to allow the angry workers to express their displeasure.
Following the failure of the security officials to adhere, angry protesters pulled down the gate and subsequently moved to the second gate of the Assembly Complex.
