As vigilantes stormed the NASS with guns and charms in search of legislative support, on Tuesday, 18th 2021.

Members of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN) from throughout the country descended on the National Assembly Complex in Abuja to seek legislative support for their operations across the country.

The group mobilized a huge number of people to attend a one-day public hearing held by the Senate Committee on Interior on bills to form the Nigeria Hunters Council, a bill to establish the Nigeria Peace Corps, and other bills.

Members of the group, who were armed with a variety of local firearms, demanded that the bill be passed so that they could supplement the work of other security agencies in safeguarding lives and property and preventing crimes.

Armed police officers stationed outside the main gate denied the group entry but requested that the group's leadership attend the public hearing.

The situation resulted in gridlock at the federal secretariat, as drivers sought alternate routes to avoid becoming trapped.

Some of the members were observed waving horsetails and wearing charms and fetish items on their clothing.

A measure for an Act to Establish Unity Corps, as well as a bill for a Civil Defence Academy, will be discussed at the hearing.
