It was also noticed that the protesters arrived the National Assembly entryway early in the morning on Tuesday, with placards insulting the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Nigerian Senate.
The entrance to the National Assembly in Abuja, was on Tuesday morning, hindered by Thousands of protesters who are requesting the prompt reinstatement of the suspended senator representing Borno south in the Senate, Ali Ndume.
“Saraki is a curse”, one placard read.
Many of the protesters said they were natives of southern Borno, Ali Ndume’s district, but mostly live in Mararaba and Masaka areas of Abuja.
A correspondent at the scene said the protesters did not immediately appear like the usual “rented crowd”.
Recall that Senator Ndume was suspended last week by the Senate for triggering investigations into allegations of forgery against the senate president, Bukola Saraki, and Kogi senator, Dino Melaye.
Saraki was accused of importing a Range Rover SUV without paying appropriate import duty, and attempting to clear the vehicle with falsified papers. While Dino Melaye was accused of falsely claiming to have graduated from Ahmadu Bello University.
