JUST IN: Police Arrest Senator Ovie Omo-Agege
Policemen have arrested the suspended All Progressives Congress (APC) senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District, Ovie Omo-Agege.
He was arrested at the Senate lobby immediately after he emerged from the chambers of the Senate on Wednesday.
Initially, two policemen laid siege for the lawmaker immediately he emerged from the chamber, led him few meters away from the hallowed chamber before more policemen joined them and led him to a waiting vehicle.
At 11:19am, thugs suspected to be loyalists of Omo-Agege invaded the hallowed chambers of the Senate and stole the mace.
Mace is the symbol of authority of the legislature.
The thugs numbering three barged their way through the door of the chamber and overpowered the security agents including sergeant-at-arms.
They grabbed the mace, ran into a waiting jeep and zoomed off.
Senator Omo-Agege was suspended for 90 legislative days over the remarks he made at a press conference that the amendment of the 2010 electoral act to change the sequence of the election set by INEC is targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari.
Although he apologized to the Senate on February 21 about his comment, the senator still took the Senate to court.
The Senate Committee on Ethic and Privileges recommended in its report that Senator Omo-Agege be suspended for 181 legislative days, but Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki recommended that it be reduced to 90 legislative days.
There is still heightened security at the National Assembly.
