A female member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) attached to the National Assembly narrowly escaped being raped on Thursday.
The fair complexioned lady was seen crying profusely at the White House wing of the National Assembly complex at about 5:45pm She told passers-by at the Senate wing of the White House that she narrowly escaped being raped.
She said that a heavily built man accosted her while she went to ease herself at one of rest rooms in the upper legislative chamber.
The corps member said she was about to undress herself when she saw a man entering the rest room.
The lady said she sensed that it was unusual for a man to enter the room specifically designed for women.
“As the man approached me, I had no option than to raise the alarm and the man took to his heels,” she said.
She wondered why security operatives at the National Assembly did not respond quickly to her call and apprehend the man.
