Just In: Dino Melaye Leaves Residence, Meets IGP
Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District, on Friday left his Maitama residence to meet with Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, at the Force headquarters.
Dino has been hiding in his residence for over seven days to avoid being arrested by policemen.
Dino went to the Force headquarters with some senators in a move to resolve the issue with the Police Chief.
More 20 policemen had stormed Melaye’s mansion at Sangha street, Maitama last week Friday in an attempt to arrest him over the alleged shooting of one Sgt. Aliyu.
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 Dino.
Dino Melaye had barricaded himself in his home and refused to surrender for arrest.
Instead, he had been tweeting defiant messages on Twitter, saying he would not surrender to the Police.
