Scores of protesters, with flags, banners and placards have taken over the entrance to the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.

The demonstrators were locked out of the Assembly complex but carried of with their protests Tuesday morning at the entrance.

The protesters, under the umbrella of the Citizens United for Peace and Stability, are calling for more transparency in the National Assembly, the return of the SUVs purchased for Senators at over twice the normal price and a cessation of “playing politics” with the 2016 budget.
