Photos: Blocked APC Lawmakers Jump Gate into National Assembly

Earlier on today, several members of the House of Representatives had to scale locked gates to gain access to the National Assembly complex in Abuja after they were stopped by security agents. Some 1000 soldiers and policemen had sealed the entrance of the National Assembly and physically prevented the Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, from entering, thereby throwing the complex into chaos. At least 15 members of the All Progressive Congress, APC, had to scale the gates. Tambuwal, some House of Rep members were teargassed. Senate President David Mark eventually had to shut the Assembly down till Nov 25th, next week Tuesday.
