Ovie Omo-Agege sitting like a boss after the mace drama
The Senate plenary was on Wednesday disrupted after suspected thugs invaded the chamber and made away with the mace.
The incident happened few seconds after a suspended senator, Ovie Omo-Agege, entered the chamber.
A reporter observed that about 10 suspected thugs who came to the venue with the senator forced their entrance into the chamber.
Seconds later, the thugs ran out of the chamber with the mace causing pandemonium in the Senate. They left the National Assembly with the mace in a black SUV.
Senator Omo-Agege who is on suspension for 90 days by the senate maintained calmness while the session was thrown into pandemonium by the thugs.
The All Progressives Congress chieftain has denied making away with the mace which has since been recovered with reports that the hoodlums have been nabbed too.
The mace is the symbol of authority of the parliament. One of the security personnel at the entrance of the National Assembly said the thugs told him and other officers they were with the senator.
