There is trouble in the Nigerian Senate as hoodlums moments ago stole the mace of authority
Authorities of the Nigerian Senate have reacted to the snatching of the Mace during a plenary session moments ago.
According to the statement signed by Senate Spokesperson, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, the act was masterminded by suspended Delta Central Senator, Ovie Omo-Agege.
Today, some armed hoodlums led by suspended Senator, Ovie Omo-Agege, walked into the Senate plenary and seized the symbol of authority of the Upper Legislative Chamber, the mace,” the statement read in part.
The Senate further described the incident as act of treason as “it is an attempt to overthrow a branch of the Federal Government of Nigeria by force, and it must be treated as such.”
The Senate has now gone into an executive session while calling on all security agencies to stand on the part of justice.
