Dee-One who shared a photo with the embattled senator on Instagram, stated that he knows that Dino Melaye will come out of the fight with the police stronger. He wrote;
WHEN WILL WE LEARN TO TREAT PEOPLE WITH RESPECT?? I BELIEVE YOU WILL DEFINITELY COME OUT STRONGER!
However the post took a downturn as Dee-One got dragged by Nigerians for saying that Dino Melaye should be treated with respect. He was accused him of showing solidarity to a lawmaker, who never respected a police invitation. Here are are screenshots of some comments below;
Recall that on January 4, 2019, Melaye surrendered to the police after a standoff outside his Maitama apartment that began on December 28, 2018. The police claimed that Melaye was involved in the shooting of police officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu in Kogi State in July of 2018. For most of 2018, Melaye was in one police trouble or the other. In April, he infamously jumped out of a moving police van as he was being transported to face criminal charges in Kogi.
The police also disclosed that Senator Dino Melaye would remain in its custody till January 23, based on a 14-day remand warrant it obtained from an FCT High Court on Wednesday, January 9, to that effect.
