Dino Melaye has rejected reports that he fled Nigeria over his issues with the Nigerian police.
Reports have it that Melaye, whom the Nigerian police said may be declared wanted, fled the country and plans not to return until there is a change of government at the federal level and his state, Kogi.
The report also said Melaye warned the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and other senators to fight for him, failure of which he would bring down at least 30 senators.
He said, “For the records, I did not flee Nigeria and have no reason to flee my country leaving behind my family as the online paper wants Nigerians to believe. My attention was drawn to their lies this night, hence this public statement, lest the unsuspecting members of the public and my supporters believe the lies by Omoyele Sowore ( Sahara Reporters publisher) as directed by his new paymasters.
“The lies in the SaharaReporters’ so-called news report is nothing but to cause serious disharmony in the senate and among united majority senators, who are resolute in defending democracy and its institutions no matter whose ox is gored.”
Melaye, however, did not say why he traveled out of the country and when he would return.
