Protesters in their hundreds on Tuesday besieged the National Assembly in protest against the planned suspension of Senator Kabiru Marafa over alleged unguided statements against the Senate and the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.

Saraki is currently facing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal over alleged failure to declare his assets.

The group, Open Society Coalition, demanded for the immediate resignation of the Senate president in order for him to focus on his trial at the CCT.

The group had banners with various inscriptions at the entrance of the National Assembly such as: Suspend Saraki, not Marafa; Stop suspending members, leave the Senate and face CCT; Democracy survives in inclusiveness, not in suspending people of different opinion; National Assembly, centre of Democracy not Fascist centre.
