Nigerian Senate Mace Stolen

Nigerian Senate Mace Stolen From Parliament

The Nigerian parliament which primarily is meant to be a place that has three functions: electorate, making laws, and overseeing the government, since we gained independence has been turned into an institution of chaos, catastrophe, corruption, foolishness, pointless fights, and ignorance, today this has been taken to a new level as a Nigerian senator Ovie Omo-Agege walked into Nigerian National Embassy with a group of local thugs on Wednesday and left with (stole) the symbol of authority, Mace of Nigeria’s upper chamber of parliament.

This action is an affront on the legislature, security agencies must stand on the side of due process and immediately mobilize their personnel to retrieve the mace and apprehend the perpetrators of this act,” Senator Abdullahi shares with a CNN.

Today, some hoodlums seized the symbol of authority of the Upper Legislative Chamber, the mace. This action is an act of treason, as it is an attempt to overthrow a branch of the federal government of Nigeria by force and it must be treated as such. – said Senate Media and Public Affairs, Chairman Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi in a statement.


Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was recently suspended over the comments he made during a debate has been accused of treason and arrested after his recent actions.

Seizing the mace has been a long-established tactic to express discontent with parliamentary proceedings in the Senate and the lower House of Representatives, as well as state legislatures. In 2000, the then-Senate president himself allegedly removed the mace from the chamber and took it to his hometown in a dispute with his deputy over the resumption date after recess. – The East African Reported.
