The National Assembly joint ad hoc committee has recommended the immediate suspension of Ovie Omo-Agege, the senator representing Delta central, for 180 legislative days over the theft of the Senate mace.
The recommendation was made by the committee investigating the invasion of the Senate at the conclusion of their investigation.
The committee also recommends that Senator Omo-Agege be prosecuted alongside six other suspects who accompanied him into the chamber on the day of the incident.
They are to be prosecuted for treasonable felony assault on National Assembly members of staff, conspiracy to steal and eventual theft of the Senate Mace.
The committee also recommends a total review of the National Assembly’s security architecture.
