NGO Bill: Protesters Storm National Assembly (Photos)

A coalition of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other protesters on Wednesday stormed the national assembly in Abuja to protest against the controversial NGO Bill.

The bill is slated for public hearing on Wednesday and Thursday, 13th and 14th December, 2017.

The protesters were however prevented from gaining entrance into the National Assembly Complex by armed policemen.

Sponsor of the NGO bill, Hon Buba Jibril, was absent as the public hearing on the bill kicked off at the House of Representatives today.
