No Comments

The Senate mace earlier snatched on Wednesday has reportedly been recovered, with the hallowed chamber resuming sitting.

On resumption, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who was presiding, vowed that the Senate would never be intimidated in carrying out the constitutional duties for which they were voted.

"Dear colleagues, let us resume sitting and finish our business of the day even if we stay here till 6:00pm.

"We shall never be intimidated by the anti-democracy and we shall do our best to defend our democracy and our mandate," Ekweremadu assured.

As at the time of filing this report, our correspondent reports that the upper legislative chamber is in session. However, it is being claimed in some quarters that the Senate is only using a reserved mace while it decides on the next line of legal action to take regarding the removed one.
