BREAKING: Protesters Led By Chidi Odinkalu Storm National Assembly Over NGO Bill

Protesters from various non-governmental organisations (NGOs) stormed the National Assembly on Wednesday to kick against the passage of the controversial �NGO bill�.

In a bid to prevent the passage of a bill for an act to provide for the establishment of the Non-governmental Organisation (NGO), regulatory commission, some protesters in their hundreds led by renowned human rights activist, Chidi Odinkalu, on Wednesday, besieged the National Assembly.

According to a report by Premium Times, the protesters clad in shirts bearing '#NoToNGOBill' chanted songs to taunt Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and other members of the National Assembly.

It was gathered that the protesters were denied entry as security operatives shut the gate of the National Assembly, and after minutes of heated arguments and negotiations with security operatives, some of the protesters were allowed in.

The bill is slated for public hearing on Wednesday and Thursday, 13th and 14th December, 2017, while the public hearing on the bill was ongoing at the House of Representatives at the time of this report.
