Senator Dino Melaye has announced his decision to finally accept the invitation by the Nigeria Police Force after officers raided his Abuja home recently.
According to Melaye, after the raid, all of his police escorts were withdrawn in a bid to set him up again.
On Tuesday, April 24, the lawmaker took to his Twitter account (@dino_melaye) to reveal that he will be pay a visit to police authorities today.
He posted, “I will make myself available to the police today. My resolve to speak the truth and defend the poor masses of NIGERIA is Total. We shall overcome!”
Melaye is wanted for questioning over his alleged involvement in a case of unlawful possession of prohibited firearms.
After criminal suspects Kabiru Saidu, a.k.a Osama, and Nuhu Salisu, aka Small, were arrested at Ogojueje in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi on January 19, 2018, they confessed to the police that Senator Melaye hired them to cause unrest in the state ahead of the 2019 general elections.
He was officially declared wanted by the police on March 28, the day he was due to be arraigned in court over the charges of criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms alongside Osama and Small who escaped from their prison cell. Both of them were rearrested before April 1, but the lawmaker refused to honour the invitation from authorities unless the questioning was transferred to the Abuja command.
