Thugs suspected to be loyal to the suspended Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege on Wednesday, invaded the red chambers and forcefully took away the mace.

The SDP through its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Alfa Mohammed, condemned the action, calling on “all lovers of democracy to rise against the dangerous development.”

It also urged security agencies to “do more to find and prosecute the sponsors of the invasion.”

“We have all struggled to get this democracy we are now enjoying. We should not allow any over ambitious politician or surrogates of politicians to derail it,” he said.
