Hoodlums storm Senate, steal Mace - BellaNaija

Unknown “thugs” on Wednesday stormed the Nigerian Senate, making away with the mace of office, The Cable reports.

The senate was in session when the thugs stormed in, reportedly accompanying suspended senator Ovie Omo-Agege.

The sergeants-at-arms were pictured struggling with the thugs to recover the mace.

Ike Ekweremadu, the Deputy Senate Leader, asked that the senators in session settle down for the continuation of the plenary, while promising that the thugs will be punished.

Omo-Agege and the thugs were said to have escaped with the mace in 3 waiting vehicles.

The Senate, in a statement by its spokesperson Abdullahi Sabi has said it is treasonous and has asked security agencies to retrieve the mace.

    Nigeria is a cesspool of filth. We elect beasts who kill, maim and consort with the devil to get into power. Hence the constant disparity between the rich and poor and no infrastructure, grinding poverty, no power no clean water and a failed system. I still repeat I’m surprised there has not been anarchy and the people revolting in the streets. What’s happening in nija is unconscionable!!

    How much are these people paid again?
    How many of you know their senators, representatives, have gone to their office to solve civil issues, been to their townhall meetings, really got to speak with them and got some of these problems solved or in the process of solving them?
    That’s what Congress men/ women do routinely, in addition to going to their work and that’s why they are paid well in other parts of the world.
    Our Congress members do not deserve their pay. Not in a country where minimum wage is how much again?
    Healthcare workers, teachers are paid What?

    But,what is he going to do with mace? Terrible.
