By Nuel Suji -Fresh facts emerging from the National Assembly revealed the Mace was forcefully taken away by unknown persons while the senate was preparing to resume plenary.

“It was shocking, in a commando style, some guys who claimed to be with the suspended Delta North senator, Ovie Omo-Agege gained access to NASS and forcefully took the mace away,” an eye-witness who pleaded not to be named told News Investigators.

Mr. Omo-Agege, who was suspended last week over his pro-Buhari stance was also sighted at the entrance of the chamber before the incident.

The symbol of authority of the Nigerian Senate.

The senate is yet to respond officially to the development.

#Details of what is happening at the nation’s highest legislative chamber is sketchy, it may not be unconnected with the rumoured plan to impeach the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki.

The senate had been divided in recent past along those regarded as pro-Buhari whom the senate leadership considered to be working against the collective interest of the senate.

But our reporter says the senate could not hold in plenary as at now because the Sergent-at-arm could not found the whereabout of the mace.

Without the mace, the senate cannot sit.

watch out for details.
