FG Charges Dino Melaye For Framing Top Government Official In Assassination Attempt

The Federal Government has dragged Senator Dino Melaye to court and charged him with giving false information about an assassination attempt on his life to the police in April 2017.
Melaye was accused of falsely incriminating the Chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, Mr. Edward David, in the said assassination attempt.

The Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation filed the charges, marked CR/106/18 before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on January 31, 2018.

In the first count, the Kogi West Senator was accused of deliberately giving false information to the police to frame Bello’s Chief of Staff as the mastermind of the assassination attempt on him at his hometown in Ayetoro-Gbede, Kogi State in April last year.

According to the charges signed by Mr. Magaji Labaran, the police discovered the alleged falsehood in Melaye’s claim while investigating the senator’s assassination claim.

In the second count, Melaye was accused of making false statement of facts in a phone conversation with Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, a son to the late former Governor of Kogi State, Abubakar Audu, with the intention of harming the reputation of David.

The offences were said to be punishable under sections 140 and 393 of the Penal Code Law, Cap. 89, Laws of Northern Nigeria, 1963.
