Dino Melaye says he will make himself available to police this week


Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi west has said that he would make himself available to the police this week.

He made this known during an interview with Channels Television recently.

According to him, he is not a criminal and has no reason to run from the police, adding that the invasion of his residence was unnecessary.

“I was informed that my house has been invaded. Over 40 policemen inside the compound and over 50 outside the gate. My staff were molested, beaten and handcuffed and taken away,” he said.

“Presently I’m outside Abuja. I’m a senator of the Federal Republic of Abuja, I cannot run away. I will make myself available as soon as I’m back to town. I am not a criminal, I have not done anything wrong.”

He also accused the police of disobeying a court order that his international passport be released to him.

“The police have arraigned me in seven courts already. There is a judgement that my passport be given to me. For the past five months, the court order on the IG to return my passport they have refused to obey that order,” Melaye said.

“Since April, my security details have been withdrawn by the Nigerian police. The resolution of the senate for them to restore that have been ignored, all these is to expose me to attack and make me vulnerable.

“But God has been protecting me, he has been my shield and buckler, I cannot run away. I’m not a criminal, I will make myself available to the force headquarters as soon as I return on Monday.”

It would be recalled that On Friday, policemen numbering 30 had invaded Melaye’s Abuja residence to effect his arrest.
