187


Some policemen have invaded the Abuja residence of Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district.
This comes three days after the senator alleged that Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, had ordered that he should be injected to death.
The officers first laid siege to Sangha street, off Mississippi, Maitama, where the lawmaker’s house is, before gaining entrance into his premises.

The senator has refused to come out but he rather took to Twitter narrate the encounter and also call attention to it.

In March, the police declared Melaye wanted after accusing him of supplying arms to suspected hoodlums.

He was later prevented from embarking on a trip to Morocco and subsequently arrested at his residence. The lawmaker was charged to court after spending days in detention.
