Police block activists from protesting against Senator Elisha Abbo in National Assembly

Armed police officers attached to the National Assembly on Wednesday frustrated plans by

some group of women activists from protesting against the embattled Senator Elisha Abbo, who allegedly slapped a nursing mother in an Abuja adult toy shop.

The group of women activists numbering about 50 and led by Aisha Yesufu, stormed the National Assembly complex around 11:00 a.m., chanting solidarity songs.

The female rights activists demanded the arrest and prosecution of the senator for molesting a mother.

Stern-looking police officers stationed at the entrance of the federal parliament locked the main entrance and dismissed the protesters.

The protesters, who arrived when the Senate plenary was ongoing, left immediately to avoid arrest a bloody clash with the security agents.

Details later.
