Alleged mace theft: Senate committee recommends Omo-Agege for suspension, prosecution
The National Assembly joint ad hoc committee on Monday recommended the immediate suspension of the senator representing Delta Central, Ovie Omo-Agege, for 180 legislative days over the theft of the Senate mace.
The recommendation was made by the committee investigating the invasion of the Senate at the conclusion of their investigation, reports Channels Television.
The committee also recommended that Senator Omo-Agege be prosecuted alongside six other suspects who allegedly accompanied him into the chamber on the day of the incident.
They are to be prosecuted for treasonable felony, assault on National Assembly members of staff, conspiracy to steal and eventual theft of the Senate Mace.
The committee also recommends a total review of the National Assembly’s security architecture.
Senator Omo-Agege, a few months ago, appeared before the Senate committee investigating the invasion of the National Assembly and theft of the Senate Mace, which has since been recovered by the Police.Punch
