Recall that the mace was stolen from the Senate chamber on Wednesday.

Sahara Reporters had earlier reported that the mace that was snatched from the Senate during a plenary session has been returned after it was found under a flyover bridge in Abuja.

A top personnel of the force handed over the mace to the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mr Sani Omolori, on Thursday at the assembly complex in Abuja, the nation's capital.

"In this matter, the Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of the State Security Service (SSS) and their respective officers in charge of the FCT also have case s to answer".
