(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Hours after it was missing, the Nigeria Police has returned to the Senate chamber the mace snatched from it Wednesday.
Earlier, a Deputy Force Spokesman, SP Aremu Adeniran, disclosed Thursday morning that the mace was abandoned under the flyover before the city gate in Abuja where a passerby saw it and alerted the police.
At about 11:45 am, a Deputy Inspector General of Police handed over the mace to the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mr. Mohammed Sani-Omolori. He later returned to the Blue Chamber.
It would be recalled that suspected thugs invaded the senate chambers Wednesday during plenary and carted away the mace.
