FG Planned Stealing Of Senate’s Mace – Wike
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, said on Sunday that the invasion of the Senate was a plot by the Federal Government to overthrow the Senate leadership .
The governor in a statement by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media , Simeon Nwakaudu , also alleged that the Federal Government wanted to use security agencies to frame him by planting somebody to claim that he received $ 3 m from the Rivers State governor .
Wike spoke during 105 th Annual Convention of the Nigerian Baptist Convention at Ndele , Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State on Sunday.
He said , “They ( FG) plotted to overthrow the leadership of the Senate , but they failed . What you saw was a horrible design to remove the Senate leadership .
“If you know the security architecture of the National Assembly, nobody can go in easily and leave easily without the gates being shut . These people entered and left unchallenged .
“When the Senate gave the police a 24 – hour ultimatum to find the mace , the Nigeria Police became so efficient that they traced the mace to where it was left under the bridge .”
