The senators have refused to adjourn sitting, as Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central removed his belt from his waist and laid on the table to serve as mace.
Completely shocked by the invasion of the Senate during sitting and the theft of the mace, senators deliberated on whether to adjourn sitting or not but Senator Sani and others insisted that deliberations must continue
”The Senate invaded. Mace taken away. Deliberations on whether to adjoined or not. I and others insisted that the senate must not adjoin. I removed my waist Belt and lay to serve as a mace for us to continue, My colleagues seconded. Then a spare mace brought in and the session continued. Good Drivers are not known when the road is smooth,” Sani disclosed this in a tweet hours after the incident.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police have arrested Senator Ovie Omo-Agege in connection to the invasion of the senate by hoodlums and snatching of Mace.
Here is video of Police whisking the Senator away.
