Lawmaker, Goodhead confronts DSS operatives on illegal invasion of NASS


Apparently disturbed over how he was molested, Agbonayinma in a chat with journalists said the National Assembly ” belongs to all political parties and Nigerians why must PDP thugs block me from entering the complex,” he wondered.

“If I had reacted and stormed the place with other APC lawmakers can they withstand us? But I chose to be a matured Nigerian but I equally want the thugs tried in the same vein with the invaders.

He explained that” it was even the DSS men that protected me from the rampaging thugs and the question is who brought them there if not the PDP.

“When I got to the gate, they were only allowing PDP lawmakers entry into the complex, when we all know that the National Assembly belongs to us all.

” Even when I finally entered the complex PDP lawmakers told me I had no business being there and it was Senator Matthew Uroghide and Dino Melaye that protected me from assault begging me to calm down.

The lawmaker representing Egor/ Ikpoba Oha Federal Constituency of Edo state, said”this can’t happen in the United States as such thugs will be prosecuted so I demand for their prosecution.

Recall that last Monday during the siege at the Complex, the other lawmaker was not allowed to talk to the press.
