  • Sequel to the invasion of the Senate Chambers,Nigerian police claims they have recovered stolen Mace
  • The Nigerian Police Force headquarters in
    Abuja says it has recovered the federal
    Senate’s stolen Mace at a flyover bridge
    before the Abuja City Gate.
    Deputy Force Public Relations Officer ASP
    Aremu Adeniran, who made this known,
    said “a patriotic passerby” sighted the
    object and alerted the police.
    Aremu, in a statement, said the Inspector
    General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has
    ordered the Commissioner of Police FCT
    Command to beef up security in and
    around the National Assembly.
    The statement reads:
    “Sequel to the invasion of the Senate
    Chambers of the National Assembly,
    Federal Republic of Nigeria on the
    18 April, 2018, by some suspected
    thugs, who disrupted the Senate Plenary
    Session and carted away the Mace of the
    Red Chambers, the Inspector General of
    Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris, immediately
    instituted a highpowered Police
    Investigation and Intelligence Team,
    coordinated by the IGP Monitoring Unit of
    the Force, and further directed a total
    lockdown of the Federal Capital Territory
    with intense surveillance patrol and
    thorough Stop-and-Search Operations at
    various Police checkpoints with a view to
    arresting perpetrators and possible
    recovery of the stolen Mace.
    “The Police teams engaged in massive
    raids of identified criminal spots/
    flashpoints, stop-and-search operations,
    visibility and confidence building patrols,
    intelligence gathering, which forced the
    suspected miscreants to abandon the
    Mace at a point under the flyover before
    the City Gate, where a patriotic passerby
    saw it and alerted the Police.
    “While a discreet investigation into the
    incident is still ongoing to arrest and
    bring the perpetrators to justice, the
    Nigeria Police Force appreciates the
    spirited members of the public, most
    especially motorists within Abuja
    Metropolis, for their support, cooperation
    and timely information during the rigorous
    stop-and-search operations for the
    recovery of the Mace.
    “The renewed commitment of the Nigeria
    Police Force to guarantee protection of
    lives and property, peace and stability and
    sustain democracy in the country remains
    unequivocal and unwavering.”
