Some citizens of Idoma community have lambasted their sons at the national assembly for refusing to identify with them yesterday during a peaceful protest against the killings in Agatu area of Benue State.
IDOMA VOICE reports that Bar. Paul Edeh of One Idoma Initiative, who led the team of the protesters, yesterday stormed the national assembly, all donned in black attires, demanding immediate end to the genocide in the community.
Checks by this newspaper however show that Idoma sons at the national assembly failed to come out to identify with their people.
Others members of the national assembly who are currently under fire for failing to receive the protesters were, former senate president, David Mark, who reportedly escaped from the assembly premises after his inauguration.
It was gathered that shortly after the inauguration of Mark, he left the national assembly with his loyalist, believing that the protest was organized by his opponent, Dan Onjeh to disrupt his inauguration.
Others are bench-warning Oju/Obi rep member, Samson Okwu, Otukpo Ohimini house of rep member, Ezekiel Adaji and Hassan Saleh, who represents Ado, Okpokwu and Ogbadibo fed constituency.
Speaking with IDOMA VOICE, one of the protesters who gave his name as Akor described their action as national shame said it was unfortunate that their sons at the national assembly could not even come out to identify with them during the protest.
“It is very bad. A national shame! We have people like Mark, Adaji, Saleh and Okwu as members of the national assembly but none of them could come out to address us. Very shameful!
