The Executive Governor of Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike, on Sunday said that the invasion of the Senate that led to mace snatching was a plot by the Federal Government to overthrow the Senate leadership.

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 who will claim that he received $3m from the Rivers State governor.

Wike spoke during 105th 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.”

The governor added that it was unfortunate that the President referred to Nigerian youths as being lazy and uneducated and that will definitely push investors away from the country.
