After a dramatic turn of events in the case of the mace theft which occurred in the Senate on Wednesday morning, the police released embattled Senator Ovie Omo-Agege earlier arrested over the incident.

A press statement by the Senator’s Senior Legislative Aide, Barrister Lucky Ajos, on Wednesday evening, confirmed that the accused has been released by the police after giving his version of the event.

The Senator equally denied masterminding the attack, saying: “I only came to work like any other Senator.”

The statement reads: “On Thursday, April 12, 2018, the Senate purportedly suspended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. However, based on legal advice and his understanding of the current position of the law, Senator Omo-Agege today resumed work and sitting with his colleagues.

“A few champions of the unconstitutional, invalid and tyrannical suspension tried to stop him but those who opposed it welcomed and protected him throughout the sitting. We are grateful to the many Distinguished Senators who stood by Senator Omo-Agege.

“We are aware of several media reports suggesting that Senator Omo-Agege personally removed or encouraged anyone to remove the Mace of the Senate. This weighty allegation is not true at all.

“Following the said media reports on the Mace issue, the Police authorities decided to hear from Senator Omo-Agege. He has told the Police his perspective to help them carry out a proper investigation.

“He has since left the Police. Senator Omo-Agege trusts them to thoroughly investigate this very serious matter.”

Addressing a statement issued by the Senate Spokesperson, Senator Abdullahi Sabi accusing Sen. Omo-Agege of the masterminding the mace theft, the statement said: “Without any investigation, Senator Sabi willfully, deliberately and unfairly made very serious allegations against Senator Omo-Agege on the Mace incident.

“We are carefully studying Senator Sabi’s allegations to ascertain their full ramifications. Appropriate responses will follow, as may be necessary.”
