The police have arrested Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, who was accused of leading thugs to steal the mace at the senate.
He was whisked away in a waiting police van.
Oma-Agege was arrested after the plenary around 1.50pm. He was in the chamber throughout the sitting.
The Senate had accused the suspended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (APC, Delta) of leading thugs to steal mace, the symbol of authority of the Senate.
Recall that Omo-Agege was suspended last Thursday over his remark on the reordered election sequence.
