He was eventually redirected to the second entrance close to the building housing the office of the Head of Service of the Federation.

It is not certain who gave the orders but what is known is that National Assembly workers under an umbrella name of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN are on strike declared on Monday to protest a backlog of unpaid allowances and arrears.

Most of the members were seen playing football at the main gate, a development that showed that activities have been paralyzed inside.

Sources said that there is not a single staff inside the building as all the infrastructures such as water and light were shut down by the striking workers.
