Reps approve Omo-Agege’s suspension for 180 days over Mace theft

The House of Representatives on Tuesday endorsed the recommendations of a joint ad hoc committee of the National Assembly, which recommended the immediate suspension of Ovie Omo-Agege, the Delta Central senator, for 180 legislative days.


The joint committee was constituted to investigate the invasion of the Senate chamber on April 18 and subsequent stolen of the mace.

The committee’s 10-point recommendation was adopted after Betty Apiafi (Rivers-PDP), Chairman of the Ad hoc Committee, laid the report at the Tuesday’s plenary session.


The legislators also called for the immediate prosecution of Mr Omo-Agege and six other suspects on charges of treasonable felony, assault occasioning harm, conspiracy to steal and actual theft of the mace.

They resolved that Mr Omo-Agege, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) should also be prosecuted for incitement and breach of peace inside the Senate chamber and contempt ex-facie.

Culled from NAN.
