The police have arrested suspended senator, Ovie Omo-Agege, who led hoodlums to the National Assembly on Wednesday, to snatch the Senate’s mace during plenary.
The mace is the symbol of authority of the Senate.
Mr Omo-Agege was whisked away in a black Hilux van at about 2:00 p.m. The arrest is in connection to the stealing of the Senate mace, hours earlier.
However, reports stated it is still unclear if the mace that was snatched had been recovered, but the lawmakers had resumed plenary with a spare mace.
Omo-Agege was suspended last week for taking the Senate to court. He had dragged the Senate to court to stop the committee on Ethics from inviting him to answer questions over comments attributed to him.
The senator shortly after the first consideration of the bill to amend the electoral act and change the election sequence, told newsmen that the action of the Senate was targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari.
