The missing Mace, a symbol of Authority at the Ogun State House of Assembly was on Friday, recovered at the Abule Ado area of the state by the police operatives attached to Trade Fair Station of the Lagos State Police Command.
The Operatives reportedly worked on a tip-off from the members of the community with reports that someone in a moving vehicle, suspected to be a Toyota Sienna Space Wagon, threw out an object into the nearby bush and upon recovery later, the object was identified to be the Ogun State House of Assembly Mace.
Recall that the Mace which has been handed over to the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, was stolen from the House of Assembly complex, Ogun State recently.
The CP however 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 Police Boss promised to assist the Ogun State Police Command in the investigation into the incident that led to the recovery of the mace.
