Stolen Mace: Omo Agege And Ali Ndume To Appear Before Investigative Committee

17 May 2018

He said: "We have equally filed an appeal against the judgment of the court and a motion for stay of execution of the judgment at the Court of Appeal".

Heads of different security agencies within the National Assembly had earlier alleged that Mr Omo-Agege led seven unauthorised personnel into the red chamber and disrupted plenary.

According to a report by the Punch, Omo-Agege maintained that the court had nullified his suspension and no court has granted the Senate a stay of execution on the case so far.

The chairman of the investigating committee, Bala Ibn Na'Allah (APC, Kebbi), issued the summon to the two senators at the committee meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

In a statement signed on Monday by its spokesperson, Sabi Abdullahi, the Senate said it has been briefed by lawyers on the court judgement nullifying Omo-Agege's suspension and will, therefore, follow the court ruling.

For Senator Omo-Agege, the Committee in the invitation letter said, "based on the testimony of the National Assembly Divisional Police Officer (DPO), the DSS and the Sergeant at Arms, you are alleged to have entered the National Assembly accompanied by seven persons who allegedly took the mace of the Senate during plenary session on April 18, at about 11:30 a.m".

Contrary to expectation, Delta Central Senator, Ovie Omo-Agege, failed to resume at the Senate plenary on Tuesday.

"The Senate has been advised that since the motion for stay of execution of the Thursday, May 10, 2018, judgment shall be heard and possibly determined on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, we shall therefore respect the subsisting High Court judgment and await the appellate court's decision on the pending motion".

The Senate in April suspended Mr Omo-Agege, for accusing his colleagues of working against President Muhammadu Buhari's re-election plans in 2019.

Omo-Agege however told our correspondent on Saturday that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, was joined in the suit challenging his suspension.

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, while inaugurating the joint ad hoc committee of the National Assembly to investigate the invasion of the Senate chamber and snatching of the mace by suspected thugs last week, noted that the attackers had violated the liberty of the people who the National Assembly represent. And the security agencies are under the Federal Government.

"The judgment that was delivered by the court says that the court was nullifying my suspension "with immediate effect.' If they go ahead and apply for a stay of execution, no court has granted them that".
