Police recover stolen Mace under bridge

UPDATE The Mace of the Senate Hijacked at the National Assembly

People trying to take possession of the mace, the symbol of authority of the Upper Legislative Chamber, seized at the chamber in Abuja, on April 18, 2018.

The Mace, carted away by the thugs while a plenary session was in progress, was found where it was "abandoned under the flyover bridge before the city gate in Abuja where a passerby saw it and alerted the police", a spokesman said.

The police of the FCT command later arrested the senator who was said to have been released shortly thereafter. Security at the parliament has been beefed up as a outcome. The men of the Mobile Police Force have the responsibility of guarding the outer gates everyday while the personnel of the Sergeant-At-Arms maintain round vigilance inside the expansive building on a daily basis.

While appreciating Senators for showing maturity and patriotism "in the face of flagrant provocation", he thanked Nigerians, the House of Representatives, staff of the National Assembly, the press, civil society, and the global community for standing with the National Assembly in condemnation of the incident.

Apple could be ready to launch an iPhone SE 2 soon
The price of the single-SIM iPhone should be between $550 and $650 whereas the dual-SIM variant could cost around $650 to $750. The higher prices of the new iPhones helped Apple to score an all-time record in quarterly profit and overall revenue.

Seizing the mace has been a long-established tactic to express discontent with parliamentary proceedings in the Senate and the lower House of Representatives, as well as state legislatures.

Hours later a top police officer handed the mace over to Omolori, Clerk of the National Assembly. We will get to the roots of the matter.

Adeniran, however, noted that discreet investigation into the incident was still ongoing to arrest and bring the perpetrators to justice. "We will be inviting them next week to brief us". The Committee eventually recommended Omo-Agege's suspension. "I know they are still meeting and they will not give up as long as they see Saraki and Ekweremadu as enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari". This was the case when senators loyal to the former Senate president, late Chuba Okadigbo, took the mace out of the chamber.

"The incident at the senate is hard for one to understand how it happened".
