The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday,
April 25, ended its plenary session early
to enable lawmakers to visit their
colleague, Senator Dino Melaye,
Premium Times reports.
NAIJ.com gathered that the lawmakers,
took turns at the plenary to condemn
the police for what they termed as
inhuman treatment of Melaye by
security operatives.
Oluremi Tinubu while deliberating on
the incident moved a motion that the
Senate adjourn plenary to immediately
go in search of the Kogi state senator

Tinubu’s suggestion follows several
accounts of earlier speakers that they
were turned back while attempting to
visit Melaye at the hospital.
Senate president, Bukola Saraki, said
that Senator Melaye has been in
intensive unit and has not eaten in 24
hours.
Saraki said this shortly after vising the
Kogi senator at the National Hospital on
Wednesday, April 25, in Abuja.
