Seized Mace: Senate Accuses Suspended Senator Ovie Agege Of House Disruption



Nigerian Senators During a Plenary Session

The Nigerian Senate have accused the suspended Senator, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege led the hoodlums into the Senate floor thereby disrupting activities of the house on Wednesday morning.

Earlier today, it was reported that the mace was taken away by hoodlums who invaded the Senate while it conducted a seating.

Senator Omo-Agege was suspended by the Senate for 90 days over his comments on the reordering of electoral timetable. 


According to a release by Spokesman of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, he confirmed the hoodlums were led by suspended Senator, Ovie Omo-Agege.

The statement read; “Today, some 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.


This action is an 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. All Security agencies must stand on the side of due process and immediately mobilize their personnel to retrieve the mace and apprehend the mastermind and the perpetrators of this act.

“This action is also an affront on the legislature, and the Leadership of the House has come to express their support against this action. The Senate is now in an Executive session.

“An updated statement will be released immediately after the closed door session.”
