NLC protesters pull down national assembly gate, force their way into complex
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had announced the commencement of the protests today, amid hardship caused by President Bola Tinubu’s decision to end the subsidy regime.
When the protesters arrived at the national assembly complex on Wednesday, the gates were locked by security officials.
The protesters forced their way into the complex by pulling down the gate while chanting solidarity songs.
Presently, the protesters are gathered on the premises of the national assembly, as stern looking security personnel look on.
