Eight days after being held up in his house, Senator Dino Melaye, on Friday finally surrendered to the police. He left his house with some lawmakers from the National Assembly who paid him a solidarity visit. They went to the police in company of Melaye’s lawyer, Mr. Mike Ozekhome. Melaye had been invited by the police to answer allegation of attempted murder. He is alleged to have been with his thugs who shot and injured a police officer on the 19th July 2018. It remains unclear whether the Senator from Kogi West will be remanded in custody or allowed to return home.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood as saying the injured police officer was yet to recover from the gunshot wounds he sustained during the attack and was under intensive medical care. An Abuja high court had on Thursday refused to grant Dino Melaye’s application to order the removal of police blockade on his residence. The Nigerian Police Force had said its men sent to arrest Senator Dino Melaye in his residence in Abuja will not retreat until the senator surrenders himself for arrest and investigation.

According to Moshood, the officers have a duly obtained Warrant of Arrest to pick the senator, representing Kogi West. “Senator Dino Melaye is wanted by the Police for a case of Criminal Conspiracy and Attempted Culpable Homicide, committed on 19th July, 2018, when Senator Dino Melaye and his armed thugs attacked Police personnel; shot and wounded Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) on stop and search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State”, Moshood said.

“It is on record that the Police investigators submitted a Letter of Invitation dated 23rd July, 2018, signed by the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State Police Command addressed to the Clerk, National Assembly, Abuja, inviting Senator Dino Melaye to report on 26th July, 2018 at 1100Hrs at the Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja to answer to a case of Criminal Conspiracy and Attempted Culpable Homicide against him under investigation in the Kogi State Police Command.

“The claim by the Senate President in the Media that the Police did not submit a letter of invitation to the Clerk of the National Assembly is therefore incorrect as can be seen on attached letter with acknowledgment stamp of the Clerk, National Assembly, Abuja “24 JUL 2018“. Despite this, Senator Dino Melaye bluntly refused to report himself to the Police till date.
