The Nigerian police have returned the mace stolen by some hoodlums from the Senate on Wednesday.

Senator Omo-Agege was later picked up by the police on the premises of the complex, although he has since denied any involvement in the theft of the mace and freed from police custody. Security at the parliament has been beefed up as a effect.

Ekweremadu announced the intention of the Senate to invite Idris and Daura next week to brief them on whatever they have found out in their investigation of the matter.

Decisions taken in the Senate can not be approved without the ornamental staff, which symbolises the authority of the legislature, but the upper house resumed proceedings shortly after the theft by using a spare mace.

The police spokesman said that investigation into the incident was still on to bring the perpetrators to book.

"In that meeting, they plotted that Omo-Agege will forcefully come into the chamber".

Mr. Akume said: "The Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party is grossly embarrassed at the shameful occurrence at the Nigerian Senate yesterday whereby the mace, the symbol of the Senate's authority was seized and taken away by intruders".

Ruling on the applicant' ex parte application on Thursday, Justice Bello restrained the four respondents from arresting Omo-Agege pending the hearing of the senator's motion on notice.
