"Policemen have stormed my residence" - Dino Melaye

JUST IN…..Senator Dino Melaye Arrested

"Yes, he had been released nearly an hour ago", he said.

The Senator Representing Kogi West at the Senate was stopped at the Nnamdi Azikiwe global airport in Abuja by immigration officers who said his name is on a flight ban list forwarded to them by the police.

However, the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, has explained why the Senator was arrested.

Melaye took to Twitter to announce his arrest. While some welcomed it as deserving of a controversial lawmaker like Mr Melaye, others criticised the arrest as an act of executive recklessness.

However, Melaye's release was confirmed by his colleague, the Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani.

"Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport is not within our command so, any arrest there couldn't have been carried out by our men,"he added".

The suspects paraded on March 19, whom the police said were part of an armed gang terrorising Kogi State, had claimed that the senator was their arms supplier.

The development could further surprise Nigerians who have always been shocked at the police's apparent failure to enforce their own arrest warrant.

Dino Melaye, Naija News can authoritatively report.

Melaye who was allegedly accused of supplying arms to some murder suspects, had recently been declared wanted by the police.
