Some members of the National Assembly have gained entry into the legislative complex, even as security agents blocked access to the complex.

Senator Ben Murray Bruce made the revelation on his Twitter handle, @benmurraybruce, alongside some photos of legislators, who have managed to find their way into the complex.

He said, “Outside the National Assembly chambers with other defenders of democracy; Senators and House of Reps members. A few of us finally got our way in, but the media have been blocked from entry. However, we have our phones & will make sure injustice doesn’t prevail. #SaveOurDemocracy ”

“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 in charge of this have been blocked from entering. #SaveOurDemocracy”
