Protesters from Kogi State, under the umbrella of the Kogi Youths for Good Governance, stormed the National Assembly, yesterday, demanding for the immediate suspension of Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial Zone.
His suspension, the protesters believed, would facilitate Melaye’s recall.
The leader of the protesters, Leke Richard, said that the processes of recalling Melaye have started in his zone, over what he termed as the “abuse of Tinubu’s wife in the Senate.”
The protesters, who besieged the National Assembly’s gate in the early hours of yesterday, carried placards and banners with different inscriptions, such as: ”Dino Melaye is a disgrace to us,” “Dino Melaye will be recalled” and “Women are our mothers, learn to respect them.”
Richard said that Melaye benefited from the widespread support enjoyed by President Muhammadu Buhari to emerge as senator under the APC platform.
An officer from the office of the Sargent-At-Arms at the National Assembly, Dennis Maji, who received a letter from the protesters, promised to deliver it to the appropriate quarters.
