Senator Omo-Agege Reacts To Snatching Mace Of National Assembly by dainformant(m): 8:45pm On Apr 18
Contrary to reports that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was arrested after allegedly leading thugs into the Senate chambers to snatch the mace, the Police said the lawmaker was merely escorted out of the National Assembly complex.

The senator's media office has released a press statement as relating to the invasion of the national assembly and the stealing of the mace.

Read the press statement below;

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, the Senate purportedly suspended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. However, based on legal advice and his understanding of the current position of the law, Senator Omo-Agege today resumed work and sitting with his colleagues.

A few champions of the unconstitutional, invalid and tyrannical suspension tried to stop him but those who opposed it welcomed and protected him throughout the sitting. We are grateful to the many Distinguished Senators who stood by Senator Omo-Agege.

We are aware of several media reports suggesting that Senator Omo-Agege personally removed or encouraged anyone to remove the Mace of the Senate. This weighty allegation is not true at all.

Following the said media reports on the Mace issue, the Police authorities decided to hear from Senator Omo-Agege. He has told the Police his perspective to help them carry out a proper investigation. He has since left the Police. Senator Omo-Agege trusts them to thoroughly investigate this very serious matter.

We are also aware of a statement allegedly issued by the Senate Spokesperson, Senator Abdullahi Sabi. Without any investigation, Senator Sabi willfully, deliberately and unfairly made very serious allegations against Senator Omo-Agege on the Mace incident. We are carefully studying Senator Sabi’s allegations to ascertain their full ramifications. Appropriate responses will follow, as may be necessary.

SIGNED: Barr. Lucky Ajos

For: The Office of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege

Nothing will happen to Omo Agege, he has the blessing of Bubu.

Accusations and counter accusations. This is where we found ourselves since 1999. A system that is never practiced worldwide and with no name to call it. I can't even call this system democracy.

The senate should approach a carpenter or welder to build a new Mace for the house instead of disturbing us with this comical skit. I can imagine the contract to build a new Mace would be over 100 million Naira.

1. A suspended senator resumes plenary because he felt his suspension was illegal (based on legal advice) and not because a court of law says so.

2. Some of his colleagues who are in the know of the plot protected him from ejection from the chamber

3.... and from nowhere, some guys emerged and cart away the symbol of authority of the senate without any iota of resistance from anyone, including the security agents

4. He was rumoured to have been arrested but it now turns out that he was merely escorted away for safety reasons.

The movie is interesting and the directors ' in the ROCK' are entertaining. We look forward to the next episode.

Amazed at the reactions this is getting from the masses, cause I don't see the usefulness of the two chambers to the life of the citizens.

I wept for this country and the precedents laid by our leaders.The political desperation and impunity operating among our leaders especially those from the Apc divide will sink this country in no time.What a shame
Ovie Omo Agege was suspended from the house and he felt the process of his suspension was unconstitutional. While not approache the court to seek redress than taking laws into your hand.You are a law maker and is suppose to lead by example.

The artist Edrees Abdurahee needs to do a remix of this song "Nigeria Jaga,Jaga.Every thing scata scata ,posa posa one shot for Nigeria leaders head "

There was a country ,a banana republic.
