Mace Theft: Sen. Omo-Agege absent from plenary

Embattled Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, who vowed to attend Tuesday’s plenary of the senate in compliance with a court decision failed to turn up.
The Senate on April 2, suspended Omo-Agege (Delta-APC) over a “dissenting comment’’ on decision of the Upper Chamber on adoption of conference report on INEC Commission Act (2010) Amendment Bill.
Omo-Agege, however went to court to challenge his suspension and the court in its ruling, declared the action unconstitutional, saying that the Senate could not suspend a member beyond 14 days.
The Senate appealed the ruling but said in statement that while it was waiting for a stay of execution, it would not stop the lawmaker from resuming plenary.
