I Didn’t remove the Mace from the House–Senator Omo Agege
Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has denied allegations that he stole the mace at the Senate chamber. In a statement signed by his Senior Legislative Assistant, Lucky Ajos which read thus: “Senator Omo-Agege went to work today like other senators.
He did not remove the mace of the Senate” said: “On Thursday, April 12, 2018, the Senate purportedly suspended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. However, based on legal advice and his understanding of the current position of the law, Senator Omo-Agege today resumed work and sitting with his colleagues.
“A few champions of the unconstitutional, invalid and tyrannical suspension tried to stop him but those who opposed it welcomed and protected him throughout the sitting. We are grateful to the many distinguished senators who stood by Senator Omo-Agege.”
“We are aware of several media reports suggesting that Senator Omo-Agege personally removed or encouraged anyone to remove the Mace of the Senate. This weighty allegation is not true at all.”
Meanwhile, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has been released from police custody, remember we reported how he was arrested by the police for allegedly making away with the mace.
