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.
