Senate Constitutes Committee To Investigate Melaye’s Crisis With Police

The Senate on Tuesday ordered its committee on Police and Judiciary to investigate and report within 48 hours the issues surrounding Dino Melaye,

 Recall that Senator Dino had last year reported an assassination attempt on his life, fingering Governor Yahaya Bello and Taofiq Isa to be chief plotters.

He equally alleged that the administration of Yahaya Bello with Taofig Isa has brought an unfortunate socio-political paradigm shift in Kogi state.

However, Police on the 19 of March caught and paraded two suspected political thugs with two AK-47 and five pump action guns.

They however alleged that Senator Dino Melaye was the one sponsoring them.

A statement Dino denied, saying that it was an orchestrated lie by the governor and the Police to shut him up, and that he had never seen the arrested suspects.

On the 24 of March the Nigerian Police gave Senator Dino Melaye Tuesday (Today) to appear before a Federal High Court, Lokoja, to answer charges of criminal acts levelled against him, saying violation would leave it with no option than to issue warrant of arrest against him.

In view of these therefore, the Nigerian Senate during the Tuesday plenary ordered its committee on Police and Judiciary to investigate and report to it within 48 hours.

See senator’s reactions below: “I have not received any arraignment notice by any Court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I have not received any Court summons. The same suspect that was arrested for my assassination is the same person that is claiming I gave him arms and money. ”- Senator Dino Melaye
