The lawmaker said he forced himself out of the vehicle brought by the lawmakers.
The Senator wrote: Thank God I escaped kidnapping by unknown thugs who invaded the @nassnigeria today.
I was pushed into one of the SUVs parked in front of the White House wing and attempt was made to drive me out of National Assembly Complex.
I escaped by forcing the car door open and jumping out.
I’m very well and receiving treatment now.
