A group of protesters, today, February 23, 2016, besieged the National Assembly complex in Abuja to demand the resignation of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The demonstrators can be seen holding placards which ask Saraki to leave the Senate and face his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The protesters are also demanding that Senator Kabiru Marafa, who is facing a suspension, be left alone.

Marafa attracted controversy after he criticized the Senate and accused Saraki of blackmailing Buhari with claims that the 2016 budget was padded.

The Senate subsequently instructed its Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions to investigate Marafa.

The Senator has however said that nobody can suspend him from the legislative chamber.
