Senator Dino Melaye missing in court for gun-running trial as his whereabouts is unknown

Punch Metro reports that the gun-running trial involving the Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye; and two others, was stalled on Thursday as the senator failed to appear in court.

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 on Wednesday on his way home from the court.

“I learnt that he was attacked yesterday in Gwagwalada on his way home from the court. Up till now, I have not been able to reach him. I don’t know where he is at the moment,” he said.

He said that the prosecution counsel was not ready to open the case “due to the reason best known to them.”

However, the officer in charge of Police prosecution, Theophilus Oteme, told the court that the prosecuting counsel had an emergency yesterday, which made it “extremely difficult to appear in court.”

He, therefore, asked for long adjournment to September 23, which was opposed by the trial magistrate who argued that “it contravened administration of criminal justice law of Kogi State as amended.”

He, therefore, adjournment till 9th August for commencement of trial.
