Some yet to be identified persons on Wednesday broke into the Ogun State House of Assembly complex and carted away the mace.
DAILY POST learned that the hoodlums broke into the office of the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo overnight and made away with the mace, the Assembly’s symbol of authority.
Journalists who visited the assembly complex located a few metres from the Ogun governor’s office, on Thursday afternoon were denied access by security agents.
The Ogun State Police Command spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, has confirmed the incident.
Oyeyemi, who described the incident as unfortunate, said it is being investigated.
According to the PPRO, the hoodlums broke into the house through the ceiling to remove the mace whose head had been recovered.
Oyeyemi, however, said no arrest had been made but the police were on top of the matter to unravel the case.
