Some senators such as Ben Bruce(Bayelsa), Rafiu Ibrahim(Kwara)and Sani Yerima(Zamfara), who came to the National Assembly were denied access.

Some of the senators who sought to know why the gates were being blocked did not get any answer from the operatives who kept mum.

Senator Ben Bruce who arrived later, briefed the crowd of journalists and National Assembly staff who had gathered in front of the gate and threatened to get the details of the security operatives and send to all relevant embassies and have their Visa revoked.

Sentor Ben Bruce on his Twitter handle said : We will forever defend this hard fought democracy. Illegality will never stand! We are now in the complex but are yet to get access to the chambers as staff of the National Assembly incharge of this have been blocked from entry.
