Dozens of pro-democracy activists have stormed the National Assembly on Thursday in protest to demand the removal of the Minister of Defence over growing insecurity across Nigeria.
The protesters carried several banners with inscriptions demanding the sack of the Minister of Defence, Bello Muhammad Matawalle, over alleged complicity in the crisis especially in Zamfara state.
The protesters under the aegis of the Civil Society Advocacy Groups for Accountability and Probity also accused the defense Minister of links to bandits responsible for the loss of lives and property in northern Nigeria.
They called on the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio to exert his influence on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to ensure Matawalle is relieved of his job.
Spokesperson for the group of protesters, Danesi Momoh, claimed that the Defense Minister has a lot of explanations to make especially with his recent indictment by a panel set up by the Zamfara State government
