Police Vows To Remain At Dino Melaye’s Residence Until His Arrest, Give Reasons
The Nigeria Police has said that it will keep on waiting at the residence of the Senator representing Kogi West at the national Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye until they effect his arrest, Force spokesperson, Ag DCP Jimoh Moshood has said.
Operatives of the force had earlier today stormed the residence of Senator to effect his arrest over the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.
According to Moshood, the offence was allegedly committed by Melaye and his “armed thugs” in Kogi State on the 19th July, 2018 when they shot and wounded athe police officer.
The Police Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care.
Moshood said the Police investigators have written the Clerk of the National Assembly for Senator Dino Melaye to report at Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja for him to answer to the offences against him under investigation in Kogi State Police Command but he has bluntly refused to report himself to the Police.
“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest.
“The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.
“The Force will not tolerate attack on his personnel by any individual no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course.
“Members of the public will be kept informed on further development in the investigation of the matter.”
