JUST IN: Osinbajo, Ekweremadu meet over snatched mace


Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, are currently holding a meeting at the presidential villa in Abuja.

The meeting is taking place hours after Ovie Omo-Agege, a senator from Delta state, led suspected thugs into the senate chamber to cart away the mace, which is the symbol of authority of the legislature.

President Muhammadu Buhari and Senate President Bukola Saraki are attending officials functions abroad.

Theodore Orji, a lawmaker from Abia state, was speaking on the floor of the senate when the unwanted visitors broke in.

The senate immediately went into a closed-door session after which a spare mace was brought and the senate reconvened.   (The Cable)
