Ghanaian lawmakers watch in shock as thugs abduct Senate mace


The Senate was, yesterday, thrown into pandemonium, as the suspended senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ovie Omo-Agege, invaded the apex legislative chamber while in session with some thugs and carted away the mace.


This is just as Ghanaian parliamentarians who were on a visit to the National Assembly watched in awe the drama that played out in the Senate chambers,the New Telegraph reports.

Omo-Agege, who was accompanied into the chamber by five 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.

Three of the thugs were in suit, one in caftan while the one who went and grabbed the mace was in T-shirt. The thugs were threatening through body motions to attack anybody standing in their way to stop them from taking away the Senate mace.


The ring leader of the gang, Omo-Agege, who was suspended last week for allegedly accusing the chamber falsely of plotting to frustrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid, remained in the chamber and fully observed the proceedings of the day to the end.
