Angry Lagos Youths Beat House Of Reps Member

Naijahottestgist has reported that some angry youths in Lagos gave a member of the House of Representatives, Yomi Ogunusi, the beating of his life on Wednesday after the lawmaker only returned to his constituency for the first time since he won at the election in 2011.

Ogunusi would have died from the assault if not for God and the prompt intervention of some policemen who came to his rescue.

It was reported that the legislator representing Ifako Ijaiye Constituency in the lower chamber of the National Assembly, NASS, was at the ward meeting of the All Progressive Congress, APC, held at the party’s secretariat in the area when the angry party faithfuls pounced on him.

The youths were angry at the lawmaker because he allegedly abandoned them and refused to pick their repeated calls to his four mobile phone numbers since he moved to Abuja to represent them at the NASS.

When he stormed the ward meeting on Wednesday, he was reportedly asked to go back since he has allegedly not done anything to better their lives. It was when he refused to obey their order that the youth dealt with him, tearing his T-shirt in the process. He was later whisked away in his black Lexus jeep.
