BREAKING: Dino Melaye surrenders to police

Dino Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye has finally left his Maitama home in Abuja to meet with the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, at the Force headquarters.

The police had laid siege at his residence for eight days.

Melaye is wanted for alleged culpable homicide.

It was gathered that senators, who visited the lawmaker at his residence on Friday, went with Melaye to see the Police boss, apparently to resolve his issues with the Force.

Over 50 policemen had stormed Melaye’s mansion on December 28 in an attempt to arrest him for interrogation over the alleged shooting of a police officer.

The policeman, who is said to be lying critically ill at the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, was said to have been injured by suspected thugs loyal to the senator in Kogi State last July.

But Melaye, who represents Kogi West in the National Assembly, had barricaded himself in his home and refused to surrender for arrest.

Instead, he had been posting defiant messages on Twitter, saying he would not surrender to the Police.
