The House of Representatives has reportedly adjourned in a hurry after members of the Shi’ite group broke into the premises.
According to TheCable, some members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) broke into the premises of the national assembly, forcing federal lawmakers to adjourn plenary.
The IMN members were said to have overpowered security operatives before breaking down the first gate.
Shouts of “Allah Akbar” rented the air after the aggrieved protesters gained entry into the complex.
They advanced towards the second gate, which lead to the chambers but were stopped by their leaders who appealed to them not to proceed further.
At this point the policemen who had fled also joined to make entreaties to the mob.
The protesters demanded the continued detention of Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, their leader.
