We reported earlier today that masked police operatives have stormed the medical center where Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West, was receiving treatment and whisked him off his hospital bed.

Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood, has now confirmed that the senator was moved to a DSS hospital in Abuja, during a telephone interview with Channels Television.

He explained that the lawmaker was indeed taken away from the Police Clinic to another government-owned medical facility after the senator and the police disagreed about his fitness to face trial.

Moshood revealed further that the police had obtained a warrant of arrest to detain the lawmaker.

According to him, the police secured the warrant from a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court to keep Senator Melaye for 14 days, which started from Wednesday, January 9.

The senator emerged from his residence in Abuja on Friday last week and surrendered after eight days of police siege.

Melaye, who was later arrested, had slumped when he opened the door of his house to the security operatives in the presence of some of his colleagues in the Senate and family members.

He was initially taken to the office of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) before being transferred to the Police Clinic for medical attention.

Having spent three days at the medical facility, the police said the lawmaker was fit to stand trial for the alleged crimes which he was arrested.

But Senator Melaye has since insisted that he needed more treatment to be fit.

This prompted the police to move the lawmaker from their clinic to the DSS medical centre for further examination.

The lawmaker was declared wanted by the police for alleged criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide which he reportedly committed in Kogi State on July 19, 2018, Channels Tv reports.

  6. I am sure nothing is wrong with Dino Melaye . I think it’s high time he gives up on all this dramas . The police only has 14 days warrant arrest. He’s only making dramas

  7. What kind of thing is this,why is the Senate now speaking, we’re they all arrested as well?

  8. I strongly believe if Dino Melaye was an APC member he won’t be treated the way he is been treated just because he is an option and an outspoken one. This government is not democratic and we have a ruler as a president instead of a leader.

  9. Let them allow him take his medications considering his health condition. Pls DSS and FG should stop this drama about Dino.

  10. because he is a senator, if ordinary Nigerian mistakenly shot in the direction of a police officer, not hitting the police, we knew what will happen to the fellow.

  11. i wish him quick recovery…is he having heart problem or what’s the problem with him?

  12. Maybe he has done something really bad, and that’s why the police are actually going after him seriously

  13. Please allow him to be fit oo
    His the only one that knows his health condition better than anybody else
    All I know is that all the secret will be reveal one day

  14. Then, while must it be immediately u came out of your own hse that you collapsed. If you are truly not guilty, then why all this arrant nonsense dramas

  15. Karma always wait… I remember the role Dino played when he was APC member in the last administration..

  16. What a failed government! What did he do to deserve this kind of treatment. OMG! This is a senator of the Federal Republic for God’s sake. It’s high time this government tell us his crimes apart from dumping the ruling party. May God help us in this land

  17. If he claims not be fit then he should be taken aboard for check up, if he is fit then he should be charge for the bill and face the court

  18. they should start trail if found guilty he should face the law. if not let him go with compassion

  19. This man may be faking his illness just to excape the trial but it won’t work. Get well soon mr senator and face your trial

  20. Nigerian police should please leave Dino alone o, his not the first to kill a police man. You should all go find something etter to do and let the sleeping dog lie

  21. He should answer for his crime. A senator that can’t go home to the people that elected him, what a shame

  22. Let them not suffer Dino to death since he is still unfit. I don’t know understand this their trials o.

  23. Dino always trying to form either being sick or injured any time he is wanted by the police. The man is just an actor. Its Good that he’s being taken to the DSS medical hospital where they can watch him with close eyes… He’s just trying to delay his trail by claiming he isn’t yet fit.

  24. Federal government should stop all this..ask the man to join APC..yes because that is what you guys are waiting for.

    Stop distracting his family members and if the man dies of heart attack hmmm

  25. I heard someone say witch hunting. This is not true. He must face the full wrath of the law which no one is above including any serving senator. If he likes let him continue pretending that he is sick.

  26. if ordinary Nigerian mistakenly shot in the direction of a police officer, not hitting the police, we knew what will happen to the fellow.

  27. At the end of everything he will still be free without being charge of anything. But exactly do Nigerian government wants from Dino??

  28. Dino got choked by the smell of the Dss that’s y he collapsed.he will be ok if bokoharam meet him there

  29. He should be allowed to regain his health, before facing the Wrath of the law and Proper investigation should be carried out
