Heavy protest at National Assembly over Senator Ndume's suspension

Thousands of protesters have blocked the entrance to the National Assembly in Abuja, demanding the immediate reinstatement of Ali Ndume, senator representing Borno south in the Senate.

News reports accused Mr. Saraki of importing a Range Rover SUV without paying appropriate import duty, and attempting to clear the vehicle with falsified papers.
Mr. Melaye was accused of falsely claiming to have graduated from Ahmadu Bello University.
The Senate dismissed both allegations, and sanctioned Mr. Ndume by suspending him for six months.
Protesters arrived the National Assembly gate early Tuesday, with placards lambasting Mr. Saraki and the Senate.
“Saraki is a curse”, one placard read.
Many of the protesters said they were natives of southern Borno, Mr. Ndume’s district, but mostly live in Mararaba and Masaka areas of Abuja.
