The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, is currently meeting with Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The closed-door meeting is being held at the Vice President’s Office Wing of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting is taking place hours after some hoodlums invaded the Senate plenary session, and made away with the mace, which is the symbol of authority of the Senate.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debt, Senator Shehu Sani, has described the invasion of the Senate Chambers, as an attempted coup d’état.
Recall, that five persons sneaked into the Chamber while Ike Ekweremadu was presiding, and went away with the mace.
The guys including two hefty ones, ran out of the Chamber through the main gate.
They jumped into a waiting jeep and drove off.
Reacting to the incident, Sani in a tweet, said the invasion is an open and undisguised assault on our democracy, and a desecration of our Constitution.
“The armed invasion of the Senate Chambers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, stands condemned. It is treasonable, and nothing but an attempted coup d’ètat”, Sani said in a statement, on Wednesday.
“Nigeria is gradually sliding into a totalitarian State. The inferno of violence has moved from the hinterlands to the heights of constitutional authority. The armed invasion is a well-coordinated action aimed violating and incinerating the Parliament.”
