I’ll make myself available to police next week, says Melaye

Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, says he will make himself available to the police next week.

In an interview with Channels Television on Friday, the lawmaker said he is not a criminal and has no reason to run from the police.

He said 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 next week. I am not a criminal, I have not done anything wrong.”

The lawmaker 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“Since April, my security details have been withdrawn by the Nigerian police.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.”

On Friday, policemen numbering 30 had invaded Melaye’s Abuja residence to effect his arrest in “the case of attempted culpable homicide” against him.
