Police Allegedly Moves Dino Melaye At Abuja Hospital

The police have allegedly moved Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, to an unknown location.

Since Dino Melaye Surrenders To Police  last week, Melaye has been in a police hospital in Garki, Abuja, after he reportedly slumped.

The senator surrendered to the police  following a siege to his Abuja residence which lasted about eight days.

The police have accused Melaye of culpable homicide and alleged that his supporters shot one Danjuma Saliu, a police officer, in Kogi state on July 19.

Although the senator has been in the hospital since his arrest, the police have said he is fit to stand trial.Dino Melaye Fit For Trial – Nigerian Police

But a source told TheCable on Friday that Melaye is being moved contrary to advice of some “medical experts”.

The source said there is a probability that he is being taken to Lokoja despite the fact that “the Kogi judiciary is on strike”.

“Experts at the police hospital told them [police] to take him to a more better hospital. They are taking him to an unknown destination and it is against medical advise,” the source said.

“If it is Lokoja they are taking him to, the Kogi state judiciary is actually on strike. They may just arrange for one judge who will listen to them and will remand him in prison indefinitely and that will go beyond election time.”

Another source said: “Police stormed Melaye’s hospital today and they have taken to him an undisclosed location. Nobody knows where they are taking him to”.

If the police are successful, it will be the eight time Melaye will being arraigned in court.
