SaharaReporters Releases Foreign Bank Account Details Of Dino Melaye [Photos]
More trouble seems to be coming the way of Senator Dino Melaye as New York based online news platform, SaharaReporters has released some documents of the foreign bank account operated by the senator.
The online platform had earlier reported that Senator Melaye is operating a foreign bank account with the Bank of America against the Code of Conduct for public officers.
Section 3 of the fifth schedule of the 199 constitution states that:
The President, Vice President, Governor, Deputy Governor, Ministers of the Government of the Federation and Commissioners of the Governments of the States, members of the National Assembly and the Houses of Assembly of the States, and such other public officers or persons as the National Assembly may by law prescribe shall not maintain or operate a bank account in any country outside Nigeria.
Part of the report by SaharaReporters said that: “By leaving the impression of himself as a student, Senator Melaye was able to open a “CampusEdge” current account with account number 4460 1649 8396 and a regular savings account with account number 4460 1647 5966 with Bank of America in the state of Maryland.”
“Senator Melaye obtained a bank debit card with account number ending with #8873. It is the senator’s transactions with the debit card that gave away him away as the owner of the accounts.”
“One of Mr. Melaye’s last transactions on the account took place on December 4th as he approved payment for a transaction relating to the purchase of cosmetics from a Kremlin-based MagnitKosmetik store. Also, on September 1, Mr. Melaye approved payment to a New York-based Schweiger Dermatology.”
But Melaye has denied the allegation saying its not true.
“Lying gone digital. Every lie has an expiry date. No point responding to hired guns,” Melaye tweeted on Sunday.
He added: “We have seen fake ministerial list, fake British passport, fake bank accounts paraded, fake news daily. I Don see ocean, river no go fear me.”
But determined to expose the senator, SaharaReporters on Sunday released some details of the foreign account allegedly operated by Malaye. The details include those of a check book, account numbers and statements of the account.
