Multiple reports has it that Thugs suspected to be loyal to the suspended Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege have invaded the red chambers and forcefully taken away the mace.
We also learnt that the alleged thugs were 10 in numbers as they came to the venue with the Senator, forced their way into the chamber, seconds later, they ran out of the chamber with the Mace causing chaos in the Senate and left the National Assembly with the Mace in a black SUV.
The operation took Sergeant-At-Arms by surprise who tried to reclaim the Mace without success.
Remember, that Omo-Agege was suspended last week following his role in the electoral act amendment bill seeking to reorder the election sequence.
This development however, has thrown the Senate, and the entire National Assembly into uproar and fear of what really happened.
As the snatched Mace is the symbol of authority and the Senate consequently can no longer legitimately hold plenary.
Discussions right now is being held in groups and hush tones as to what might be the next line of action.
This development occurred with the Deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu was presiding over the plenary in the absence of the Senate President, senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki is currently at the World Bank event in the United States.
