Hoodlums Disrupt Nigerian Senate Proceedings, Steal Mace of Authority 

Pandemonium broke today at the National Assembly as unknown persons invaded the Senate chamber and carted away with the Mace.    

The mace is the symbol of authority and without it the Senate plenary does not hold. 

This development comes in the heat of the sour relationship  between the executive and the legislative resulting in the filibuster delays in the passage of the 2018 budget, confirmaion of executive appointees and the passage of the controversial Election Reordering Bill perceived as targeting President Buhari’s reelection.  

Recall that in year 2000, Senator Chuba Okadigbo disrupted proceeding of the national assembly by taking the Mace to his hometown.
