Senator Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial District, has finally been arrested on the orders of the Nigerian Police and is currently being held at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport Abuja.

Dino, who said he was on his way to Morocco on a Federal Government assignment, was arrested on Monday and is being detained at the airport by immigration officials, according to a tweet he sent out from his confinement.

His arrest may not be unconnected to his refusal to report at the Force Headquarters in Kogi for questioning.

Melaye took to Twitter to announce his arrest.

“I have just been arrested at the international wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe airport on my way to Morocco for an official engagement sponsored by the Federal Govt after checking in,” he said on Twitter.

Neither the service nor the police had yet to confirm the arrest.

The police had on May 3, warned the Senator to appear in court ahead of his arraignment on May 10, 2018.

He was arraigned on a case of conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms already filed before a Federal High Court in Lokoja, Kogi State.

However, the lawmaker failed to honour the invitation and a court summon issued him by the Force on March 24.

According to the police, the Senator is wanted on grounds of criminal offences of conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms.

Melaye’s summon follows the arrest of two men in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State, on January 19, after they confessed to having committed various crimes such as kidnappings and armed robbery.

They also disclosed that the Senator had handed them a bag containing firearms.

The police while parading Kabiru Seidu and five other suspects who escaped from a detention facility in Lokoja, said it is in the interest of Senator Melaye to voluntarily report to the Police in order to forestall the execution of an arrest warrant issued against him.

Mr Moshood explains that the suspects whose confession indicted Senator Melaye and Mohammed Audu as sponsors of thuggery in Kogi will be arraigned before a Federal High Court in Lokoja on May 10, 2018.
