Police officers and other security operatives keeping watch over the National Assembly Complex had their hands full on Thursday after protesters stormed the premises.

Chaos ensued as Nigerian security agencies who are notorious for unleashing brutality on protesters were faced by physically challenged persons from the Niger Delta.

The protesters accused elected representatives of neglecting the physically challenged.

They forced themselves inside the National Assembly Complex despite some level of resistance by security operatives at the NASS gate, Punch reported.

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, said that they arrived at the National Assembly from the various states of Niger Delta to demand their rights from their representatives.

They claimed that they were being denied their rights despite being educated.

One of them fainted and they are trying to revive him as of the time of filing this report.
