•Thugs snatching the Senate Mace on Wednesday in Abuja

 

A leading pro-democracy and Non-Governmental Organization, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has strongly condemned the armed invasion by hoodlums of the senate chambers and the theft of the mace.

Describing the attack as a dangerous precedent and a deadly attack on a key institution of constitutional democracy, the Rights group has accused the executive arm of government that controls the security forces of collusion and conspiracy in the disgraceful episode at the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

HURIWA has also called for the immediate convocation of a judicial commission of inquiry to be drawn entirely from the Federal Judicial Service Commission and headed by a serving judge of the Supreme Court to investigate the invasion and make recommendation on how to safeguards the integrity and honour of the nation’s constitutional democracy in the face of the attack on a key component of the Tripod of governmental powers.
