Police recover stolen Ogun Assembly mace in Lagos

The stolen mace at the Ogun State House of Assembly has been recovered in Lagos State, the police said on Friday.

According to a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Muyiwa Adejobi, the mace was recovered around the Abule Ado area of Lagos.

“The police operatives attached to Trade Fair Station of the Lagos State Police Command today, Friday, December 11, 2020, recovered the missing mace of the Ogun State House of Assembly at Abule Ado Area of the state at about 8.30 am,” the statement read in part.

It was reported that burglars invaded the office of the Ogun State House of Assembly on Thursday and stole the symbol of authority.

The burglars, suspected to be hoodlums, also damaged properties in the assembly.

Adejobi said, “The police operatives, who were responsive, worked on intelligence from the members of the community that someone in a moving vehicle, suspected to be Toyota Siena Space Wagon, threw out an object into the nearby bush and recovered the object which was later identified to be the Ogun State House of Assembly Mace.

“The mace had been allegedly stolen from the House of Assembly complex, Ogun State recently. It has been handed over to the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, who later instructed the DCP State CID, Lagos State, Yetunde Longe, to protect the mace and liaise with the Ogun State Police Command on the return of the recovered mace to Ogun State.”

The statement quoted Odumosu as promising to assist the Ogun State Police Command in the investigation into the incident that led to the recovery of the mace.
