The Kogi senator had been scheduled to appear in a high court to face a charge bordering on gun-running, but he was absent at Thursday’s proceeding.
His lawyer, Barrister Yemi Mohammed, who stood in for Mike Ozekhome (SAN) told the trial magistrate, Suleyman Abdalah, that he had it on good authority that Senator Melaye was attacked in Gwagwalada, Abuja, on Wednesday on his way home from the court.
See Dino’s tweet:
I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!— Senator Dino Melaye (@dino_melaye) July 27, 2018
But his Twitter followers have expressed their opinion about his claim. See their responses:
