Dino Melaye Finally Surrenders To Police For Arrest

Senator Dino Melaye has submitted himself to the police after seven days of siege on his Abuja residence.

Melaye, who represents  Kogi west senatorial district in the upper chamber, was accused of culpable homicide, an allegation he denied.

The police had vowed not to leave Melaye’s residence without arresting him.

Melaye is currently at the headquarters of the Police in Abuja in the company of some lawmakers and his lawyers.

About 20 officers of the police were at Melaye’s residence on Friday, December 28 to arrest the lawmaker.

But he did not surrender to the Police, saying he was not in Abuja.

Melaye is currently standing trial in more than one suit. He has been accused of illegal possession of arms, gun running and sponsoring hoodlums in Kogi State.
