Dino Melaye has been hospitalised at Zankli Medical Centre in Utako District, Abuja, after jumping out of a moving police vehicle.
The medical official said Melaye was not in critical condition, but he is suspected to have broken a vertebrae. Melaye, who is representing Kogi West Senatorial District, was being taken to Lokoja, the capital of his home state, where he is expected to be paraded among other hardened criminals who implicated him in the crime that necessitated his arrest.
Kogi police commissioner, Ali Janga has revealed that he did not plan to arraign the senator, saying he would only convene a press briefing about the matter. The police had alleged that Melaye contracted one Kabiru Seidu and his gang as political thugs, adding that the lawmaker met with the suspect on Airport road, Abuja inside his car in December, 2017 and gave him a bag containing an AK47 rifle, two Pump Action guns and N430,000 to share with his boys.
