A post shared by Senator Dino Melaye (SDM) (@dinomelaye) on

This is coming after the Nigerian Police Force vowed to remain at Senator Dino Melaye’s residence until he surrenders.

Yesterday was the fourth day into the siege by the police on the Abuja residence of the Senator. The force had earlier said the lawmaker was wanted for a case of criminal conspiracy, and attempted culpable homicide committed on July 19, 2018.

The police alleged that Melaye and “his armed thugs” attacked police personnel and shot and wounded one Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, who was attached to 37 Mobile Force (PMF) on stop and search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.

A statement on Sunday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said, “The Police operatives with a duly obtained Warrant of Arrest deployed to arrest Senator Dino Melaye in his residence in Abuja will not retreat until Senator Dino Melaye surrenders himself for arrest and investigation.”

A team of policemen had stormed Senator Melaye’s Abuja residence on Friday to arrest him, but Melaye posted on Twitter that he was not at home.  The Senator said he will report to the police this week. The police, however, believe he is in the house.

  30. I find it difficult to understand why they won’t just leave this man alone. Is it because he always attacks them with the truth about the goings on in this country? May God deliver him from the hands of those who want his head!

  43. Happy new year too.. You need to come out from your hiding place and go clarify yourself if you’re really sure u’re innocent

  44. Police have all right to arrest and prosecute but also they should never violate the provisions of the constitution. Rule of law is very imperative and should be respected

  45. But why will him be hiding from the police, he should come and clear him self from the police. All the same. Wish you all the best days ahead

  46. Same to you sir, guy man is in his house cooling off while police men are outside safeguarding his house chai Nigeria my country great nation great people

  47. Happy new year to him but atleast show some dignity by appearing to the police to clear your case instead of hiding

  48. Dino Melaye is the talk of time these days, please let security agents allow this man enjoy the year na, what has he done, Oga Dino, na so world be. God dey.

  49. Happy New year to you, Face the new year with maturity by standing up to defend yourself and may God be with you.

  50. Happy new year sir, please don’t mind this yeye APC and their plans..just go there and defend your self cause I know you are innocent… Once again happy new year

  51. It doesn’t matter where he is wishing Nigerians happy New year. He has caused enough drama in Nigeria.

  52. Nigeria police should leave this man alone to enjoy his life.The police should face the reality in lieu of politicising this issue

  53. Bros Dino, are you still inside this house that these men lay siege? Well, the world has heard your wishes. Just go sort things out with these men and be cool
