Big Tension: Dino Melaye falls, unable to walk again in court (see Photo)




Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District on Thursday, caused drama at the FCT High Court in Apo, Abuja.

The senator said that he was injured and could not stand in the dock to continue his criminal trial.

According to report made available by Daily Post, recalls that Melaye is facing a six-count criminal charge of attempted suicide, escape from police custody, damage to police property, mischief’s, and threat to public servants. 

The trial judge had at the last sitting on May 28, 2019, adjourned the case to September 11, 18 and October 3, 2019, for continuation of hearing and examination of witnesses by the defence counsel.

But Melaye was “assisted” to enter the courtroom by two of his aides who claimed he could not walk alone.

His counsel, Benson Igbanoi (who stood in for Mike Ozekhome) informed the trial court that he was injured in the last Governorship primary election conducted in Lokoja last week Tuesday when gunmen invaded the stadium, venue of the primary.

The defendant prayed the court for a longer adjournment to allow him to recuperate from his injured leg so as to enable him to continue his trial and present his witnesses.

Justice Sylvester Orji, in his ruling, accepted the defendant’s plea and adjourned to October 3 and 10, 2019, for the defendant to open and close his case.
