The controversial Kogi West senator, prayed the ad-hoc committee constituted by the senate to investigate the ‘disruption’ of the poverty alleviation programme initiated by the Kogi Central senator, Emmanuel Ogembe.

“Mr President, due to my private investigation I got a very serious revelation yesterday and I am so happy that a committee constituted by the senate under the leadership of the ranking senator James Manager,” Melaye said.
“Mr President few minutes ago, the Nigerian Customs intercepted sewn military camouflages with boller hats, many bullet proof vests, night vision googles, tactical boots, tactical knapsacks, training canvas, boxing gloves etc.
“These items were intercepted by the Nigerian customs because they did not come with end user certificates. When you are bringing military equipment into the country they must come with end user certificate certified by the national security adviser.”
