  • How thugs stole Senate maze during plenary

Recall that the mace was stolen from the Senate chamber on Wednesday.

A police search "forced the suspected miscreants to abandon the mace at a point under the flyover before the City Gate, where a patriotic passer-by saw it and alerted the police", said police in the capital.

Deputy Force Public Relations Officer Force Headquarters, Aremu Adeniran, said in a statement that the Senate's symbol of authority was recovered at Abuja City Gate.

Ovie Omo-Agege, a senator from the oil-rich southern Delta state who allegedly led the intruders into the upper chamber was arrested for questioning on Wednesday but was later released after denying his involvement.

Omo-Agege in the motion exparte filed by his counsel, Aliyu Umar (SAN), joined the Attorney General of the Federation, the Inspector General of Police, the Commissioner of Police FCT Command and the Director General of the SSS as respondents.

However, on Wednesday, Omo-Agege resurfaced at the National Assembly.

Passengers described scenes of panic as a piece of shrapnel from the engine shattered a plane window, nearly sucking Riordan out. Photos of the plane on the tarmac showed a missing window and a chunk gone from the left engine, including part of its cover.

The Nigeria Police has announced that the stolen mace from the Nigerian Senate has been recovered.

He later apologised to his colleagues after the senate had directed its Ethics and Privileges Committee to investigate the matter.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that the leadership of the Senate yesterday reviewed the incident and has identified some of the lawmakers behind the plot to disrupt the activities of the chamber. This was the case when senators loyal to the former Senate president, late Chuba Okadigbo, took the mace out of the chamber. We'll get to the root of this matter.

Meanwhile, the Senate has summoned the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris, and Lawal Daura, the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), to appear before the lawmakers so as to brief it on the outcome of the investigation regarding the incident.

"What I think happened was that Omo-Agege was betrayed". The Buhari loyalists were also said to have planned to move a step further if they succeeded in creating enough commotion to destabilise the red chamber.
