We are in trouble if criminals can invade senate and cart away Mace, says Atiku


Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has described the invasion of the Senate chamber by hoodlums and the carting away of the mace as a ‘dangerous precedent and an assault on Nigeria’s democracy by anti-democratic elements’.

DAILY POST reports that thugs suspected to be loyal to the suspended Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege had invaded the red chambers and forcefully took away the mace.

Few minutes later, the mace was recovered and the hallowed chamber resumed sitting.

Reacting to the incident Atiku told newsmen in Abuja that, “I am utterly embarrassed, shocked and outraged by this ugly development because it is not only a threat to a major democratic institution, but also represents a grave danger to the survival of our democracy.

”If criminals could commit such security breach with impunity, it means that our entire democracy is in danger.

“It is unacceptable and reprehensible to subject the National Assembly to this intimidation and humiliation.

”This attack by thugs should not go unpunished no matter who is involved.”
