ABUJA-In the build up of the confusion at the national assembly gate Tuesday morning, a group of youths apparently in solidarity with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have just booed Hon. EJ Agbonniyiama.

Agbonniyiama is a member of the House of Representatives from Edo State.

He was elected on the platform of the PDP but defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, some 3 months ago.

Upon his arrival to the Assembly complex this morning, the lawmaker was confronted by a battery of Journalists who have been denied access into the compound to speak on the unusual scenarios around the complex.

He blamed the whole issue on the PDP, saying that the party was blackmailing them.

He however said they were in the national assembly for the interest of the people

But hardly had he let out more words during interview than the group of youths started chanting “APC has failed”.

The lawmaker was forced to leave the scene.

Meanwhile, the complex is still on lockdown with many people standing outside the complex.

One is uncertain of the happenstances inside both chambers of the Senate and the House of Representatives with a few lawmakers who had earlier gained access into the assembly.
