How We Recovered Mace, No Arrest Yet

How thugs stole Senate maze during plenary

The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja on Thursday restrained the police and the Department of State Services from arresting Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for the Wednesday's disruption of the Senate's proceedings and theft of the upper legislative chamber's mace.

In this deluge of security personnel, the leadership of the National Assembly is yet to come to terms with the free access the "mace thieves" had when they struck on Wednesday, fuelling speculations of possible collusion.

The police later recovered the senate's stolen mace at a flyover before the Abuja city gate.

CNN has so far not been in a position to accomplish Senator Omo-Agege.

Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris had already ordered the FCT Police Command to beef-up security at the National Assembly.

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who made the disclosure after a closed-door session, yesterday, described the invasion as "a very sad testimony, a derogation, and total smear on our democracy and nation".

He also replied a text message on the arrest of the suspects from Daily Trust as simply: "No update yet please". "Let me therefore formally confirm to you that the mace has been recovered and returned by the police as demanded by this hallowed chamber".

Hours later a top police officer handed the mace over to Omolori, Clerk of the National Assembly. The Committee eventually recommended Omo-Agege's suspension.

"The incident at the senate is hard for one to understand how it happened".

Omo-Agege had alleged the Senate of working against President Muhammadu Buhari who is running for a second term of office next year.

"And he has sympathized with us over what happened and he is going to join forces with us to ensure that we get to the root of the matter and make sure this does not happen again", he said.

"We will be inviting them next week to brief the Senate on the state of investigations", Ekweremadu said.
