Seven persons who are allegedly connected with the assassination attempt on Senator Dino Melaye at his country home, Aiyetoro-Gbede, in Kogi State last Saturday, have been apprehended by the operatives of the Nigerian Police Force.
 Recall that we had reported that the lawmaker had last Saturday, escaped unhurt when gunmen invaded his house shooting sporadically as they destroyed two vehicles and riddled his building with bullets.
Sources close to the State Police Command disclosed on Monday that a black jeep suspected to have been used for the operation alongside a cache of ammunition was found by the State  Criminal Investigation Department.
 The sources further disclosed that the seven suspects were arrested at different locations while the black jeep and the ammunition had been impounded by the Kogi State Police Command.
It was also gathered that security agents were still hunting for the remaining suspects while the command had ordered the Administrator of Ijumu Local Government Area, Taofiq Isa, who had been accused by Melaye of being the mastermind of the attempt on his life, to report to the Kogi State Police Command.
 The LGA administrator, however, denied having a hand in the assassination attempt on Melaye, saying he was busy on the day of the incident attending to his sick wife and supervising the All Progressives Congress’ re-registration exercise.
  Isa had said, “I’ve never been a violent man. My running battle with Dino if any is because I have asked him to stop vilifying the state Governor, Yahaya Bello.” The Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer, William Ayah, while reacting to the report said investigation was still on.
