On Thursday, the Nigerian Police said they had recovered the stolen mace after a "patriotic passer-by" spotted it lying by Abuja's City Gate.
Mace returned Earlier, while Senate was in closeddoor session, the stolen mace was returned to the National Assembly by Police officers, led by the Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) in charge of Operations, Habila Joshak, at exactly 11:55am.
Speaking with The Nation in Calabar on Friday, Ita-Giwa said: "I feel the need to comment on the recent dramatic events at the Senate, when a gang of thugs invaded the sacred Senate Chamber and made away with the mace".
According to reports, the thugs are supporters of Senator Omo-Agege, lawmaker representing Delta central senatorial district.
Mulling the need for the National Assembly to have its own police, Ekweremadu said the current security architecture of the parliament was outside the control of lawmakers.

"If that had happened, they would have taken over the Senate".
In 2000, the then-Senate president himself allegedly removed the mace from the chamber and took it to his hometown in a dispute with his deputy over the resumption date after recess.
