Some hoodlums on Wednesday reportedly stormed the Senate chamber and took away the Mace.
The Mace is the symbol of authority in the National Assembly.
There was confusion in the chamber as Senators scampered for safety.
The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the day’s plenary, confirmed the incident.
He said the invaders would be punished for disrupting the plenary.
The Senate in its respond on Twitter handle @NGRSenate blamed the suspended Senator Omo-Agege for the incident.
