  • BREAKING NEWS: See heavily armed men currently laying siege in Dino Melaye's Abuja residence
  • Two aides of the senator who did not
    want to be named, confirmed to
    Premium Times on Monday, April 23,
    that the siege began about 1.40pm
    shortly after police officers arrived
    Melaye’s residence in Mississippi,
    Maitama District of Abuja.
    The Sun reports that four loaded police
    vehicles were parked on the road
    leading to Melaye’s house.

    The newspaper stated that the
    policemen on ground declined to
    comment and also prevented journalists
    from taking pictures of the siege.
    The senator in a tweet claimed that the
    raid on his residence was led by over 30
    heavily armed fierce looking mobile
    policemen.

    According to a tweet the All Progressives
    Congress (APC) senator posted on his
    Twitter account early morning on
    Monday, April 23, he was arrested on
    his way to Morocco for an official
    engagement.
    Melaye was detained by officials of the
    Nigeria Immigration service and was
    released after several hours. However,
    the police have denied any connection
    with the arrest of the senator.

    Spokesman of the Service, Mr Sunday
    James, told the News Agency of Nigeria
    (NAN) that Melaye was arrested by
    Immigration officials “based on
    instruction”.
    The confirmation came hours after the
    senator, who represents Kogi west,
    announced the arrest on his Twitter
    handle at 7:32 am.
