Senate President Godswill Akpabio, earlier today, hurriedly called for an emergency closed session following an intense altercation with Senator Ali Ndume, who angrily staged a walkout.
Tension has been building between the duo since the election of Akpabio to preside over the red chambers.
A viral video last week showed an angry Ndume warning Akpabio to adhere to the rules of the Senate, especially regarding the passage of bills.
Ndume, a ranking senator representing Borno South senatorial district, is a former majority leader of the Senate.
Politics Nigeria lists why he staged a walkout on Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom state and a former minister of Niger Delta affairs.
The Senate has since reconvened after its executive session, but it remains to be seen how Akpabio will handle the affairs of the upper chambers in the future.
