Melaye guided by two officers

Masked men on Friday invaded the Police Clinic where Senator Dino Melaye is taken treatment and whisked him away to an unknown destination.

The embattled Senator had collapsed last Friday after he surrendered himself to the police in Abuja.

Melaye is wanted for alleged homicide by the police.

He was believed to have been taken to Lokoja, Kogi State, for interrogation over the alleged shooting of one Sgt. Danjuma Aliu by suspected political thugs.

A close associate of the lawmaker, who craved anonymity said Melaye was taken away from the hospital  around 2:15 pm Friday in commando style.

Punch reports that Melaye, who had been having a running battle with the Force, was rushed to the clinic for medical attention after he slumped last Friday.

Before he was moved to the clinic after slumping, the lawmaker had barricaded himself in his house in Maitama, Abuja, for eight days, vowing never to give himself up for arrest.

The Force PPRO at Force Headquarters, Abuja, Jimoh Moshood, promised to get back to our reporter when he was called for confirmation of the news.
