DINO MELAYE: Senate summons IGP Idris, who ignores Saraki's calls

Senator Shehu Sani says those who worked to bring President Buhari to power are now targets of attack

A Federal Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mr. Mohammed Haruna, has said that the Commission will be engaging the services of over 2,000 ad hoc staff in the recall process of the senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye.

He said: "After the sitting of the Senate today, we made a decision to come here because for 24 hours, we have not heard or know the state of Senator Dino".

The senate also adopted the motion that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, briefed the senate in plenary tomorrow on the incident.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, who presided, lamented that he has been unable to speak with the IG of police in the last 48 hours.

The senators arrived the hospital around 1:29 p.m.in three buses shortly after suspending plenary to visit Melaye.

"As at the time we left the hospital, an issue that the feeding of Dino has become an issue because the Police are not willing to feed him because of the situation".

However, after visiting Melaye at the Intensive Care unit of the Trauma Section of the National Hospital, Saraki said that he was in a stable condition of health against initial rumours that he was dying in the hospital.


Senator Oluremi Tinubu said Melaye's arrest violated the sanctity of the Senate as a body.

Another senator who also met with Mr Melaye said the Kogi senator had been moved to the intensive care unit and that police and hospital officials left him unfed for almost a day.

Yesterday, the Senators took turns to pour their sad emotions on the arrest and maltreatment of Melaye by the police.

However, the delegation later held a meeting with the Management of the National Hospital. He is on fluids and cardiologist and all specialists have seen him. We pray for him to fully recover soon.

"I didn't see handcuffs on him when the senators visited him this (Wednesday) afternoon".

Okun Development Initiative (ODI), a socio-cultural group in Kogi state, has asked the police to respect the fundamental human rights of Dino Melaye in the course of their investigation.
