Youths Lock Down National Assembly Demanding For Saraki’s Resignation

Youths under the aegis of Occupy National Assembly, on Tuesday, besieged the premises of the federal parliament and demanded the immediate resignation of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The youths comprising of various Civil Society Organisations and students also asked the 36 senators who had so far collected their own exotic jeeps to return them immediately or face the wrath of Nigerians.

According to Punch, the angry protesters marched from the Unity Fountain within the Central Area of the city to the National Assembly, a journey of about two kilometers and forced their way to the main gate, defiling all security network mounted by regular and riot police officers.

The youths forced the main gate closed thereby preventing staff, lawmakers and visitors from either entering or leaving the premises.

The protesters, armed with placards containing various inscriptions, vowed to seal off the federal parliament for the initial three days to see whether their demands would be met. The protest paralyzed all activities in the National Assembly and vowed to continue until all their demands were fully met.
