The National Assembly has commenced repairs on one of its gates recently destroyed by protesting members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), better known as Shi’tes.

Legit.ng earlier reported how the House of Representatives on Wednesday, April 24, quickly ended its sitting after the presiding officer announced that protesting members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria known as Shiites crashed into a gate of the National Assembly.
Yusuf Lasun, the deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, announced that the protesters crashed into the first gate of the National Assembly.
The development forced the legislators to abruptly adjourn their plenary which was on before the announcement.
Recall how, in January, 2019, Legit.ng reported that members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) who are known as Shiites protested to the National Assembly and blocked the main gate over the continued detention of their leader, Ibrahim Zakzakky.
