Just In: Melaye Leaves Residence After 8 Days Siege
A federal Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Dino Melaye has finally left his Maitama home eight days after police laid siege at his home.
Over 50 policemen had on the 28 of December surrounded Melaye’s residence for 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 in Kogi State last July.
On Friday morning, the lawmaker finally left his residence to meet the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris at the Force Headquarters.
Melaye went with his colleagues who visited his residence on Friday to meet the Police Chief, possibly to put the issue to rest.
The lawmaker has been posting defiant messages on Twitter, saying he would not surrender to the Police.
