Just In: Hoodlums Invade Senate, Hijack Mace
Some unidentified hoodlums on Wednesday invaded the Senate Chamber of the National Assembly to disrupt proceedings and made away with the Mace.
The maze is the symbol of authority of the parliament.
The incident happened few seconds after a suspended Senator, Ovie Omo-Agege entered the chamber.
According to eyewitness report, the hoodlums left the National Assembly with the maze in a black SUV.
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.
“We tried to stop them but they told us they were with him (Omo-Agege),” he said.
