The Lagos State Police Command has recovered the stolen mace of the Ogun State House of Assembly at Abule Ado area in the state.
In a statement issued by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said Police operatives attached to the Trade Fair Station, worked on an intelligence report from members of the public, that an object suspected to be the missing mace of the assembly was thrown into a nearby bush from a Toyota Sienna Space Wagon, on Friday morning.
It will be recalled that people suspected to be burglars broke into the office of the Speaker of the House in the early hours of Wednesday, at the Assembly complex.
Adejobi, a Superintendent of Police, said the mace had been handed over to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu.
Odumosu according to Adejobi had instructed the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State CID, Yetunde Longe, to liaise with the Ogun State Police Command on the return of the mace to the Assembly.
Odumosu, however, promised to assist the Ogun State Police Command in the investigation into the incident that led to the recovery of the mace.
