The lawmakers gave the directive  on Wednesday in Abuja shortly after unidentified hoodlums invaded the Senate Chambers and disrupted the ongoing proceedings.

On his part, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, said that the thugs attempted to kidnap two Senators but the Senators refused to be intimidated.

While condemning the incident, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yusuf Lasun, described the act as an attempt to undermine the nation’s democracy.

This comes after Unidentified persons on Wednesday invaded the Senate Chambers disrupting the ongoing proceedings and carting away with the mace.

Reports say the men are supporters of Senator Ovie Omo- Agege who was suspended last week.
