The Senate was thrown into a pandemonium, as the suspended senator, representing Delta Central Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), rushed into the apex legislative chamber in session with some thugs and carted away the mace.
Omo-Agege, who was accompanied into the chambers by three thugs, waited at the rear of the chamber while one of the thugs went straight to the table of the President of the Senate, where the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu was presiding and took away the mace and ran out.
The invaders, who entered the chambers about 11.15 am shortly after plenary commenced, surprisingly beat the National Assembly security, the Sergeant-at-arms and carried out their well-coordinated plot.
It was after they had taken the mace and were ready to go that some personnel of the Sergeant-at-arms came struggling with the thugs but they thoroughly overpowered the security and ran out of the chamber and took to their heels.
The chamber however, immediately went into executive session to avoid exposing their disgrace to some members of the public who were observing from the gallery or the monitors located in some room at the legislative complex.
As at the press time, nobody was arrested and the mace, which is the symbol of authority of the National Assembly had not been recovered.
