Photo Of Dino Melaye Sitting On The Floor While Resisting Police Arrest

Senator Dino Melaye, who was arrested Tuesday morning in his residence by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has sustained serious injuries after he reportedly jumped out of the moving police vehicle that was conveying him to Lokoja, the Kogi state capital and ran into the thick bush nearby.

Dino who represents Kogi central could be seen sitting on the floor, shouting at the top of his voice that he “Won’t take it”, the report stated.

Recall that Dino was reportedly whisked away by thugs while being transferred from Abuja to Kogi state to answer questions over his involvement in alleged possession of arms.

After the incident, he was reportedly brought to the hospital by the alleged thugs after he had injured himself during the drama.

There was no police around when he was brought to the hospital, according to reports.

The assassins were arrested in February and they confessed to having been funded by Melaye.

Melaye who represents Kogi West is very critical of the Buhari led government as well as very critical of his state governor, Yahaya Bello. He has denied the allegations levelled against him by the suspected assassins, saying they are politically motivated adding that he was being framed.

After weeks of reportedly not honouring police invitations, he was prevented from travelling out of Nigeria to Morocco for an official assignment yesterday April 23rd. He was ambushed all through the night. This morning, he surrendered to SARS officers in Abuja.

He was being taken to Kogi state when he jumped off the vehicle and fled into the bush.

Sources said the SARS operatives gave him the impression that he was being taken to Kuje prisons but the vehicle made a detour and headed for Lokoja.

Dino Melaye after injuring himself was taken to Zanklin Hospital in Abuja.
