The police have confirmed the re-arrest of a senator, Dino Melaye, after his arraignment and subsequent bail at a Wuse Zone 2 Chief Magistrate’s Court in Abuja, on Wednesday.

In a statement signed by the Force Public Relations officer, Jimoh Moshood, the police said Mr Melaye was arraigned at the Magistrate Court for alleged criminal conspiracy, causing damage to government property, attempted suicide and escape from lawful custody.

Police arraign Senator Dino Melaye on stretcher; gets N90 million bail

His arraignment in court today was subsequent to his discharge from the National Hospital after he was confirmed fit for trial, the police said.

He was granted bail for N90 million by the court.

But the senator was immediately rearrested by the police and taken to Force Headquarters in Abuja.

Mr Melaye was at the hospital from last week Tuesday, when he reportedly jumped out of a moving police vehicle, until Wednesday afternoon when he was arraigned by the police.

The senator was trying to escape being taken to Lokoja to face criminal trial. Some of his aides told PREMIUM TIMES Wednesday afternoon that he might be taken to Lokoja soon rather than returned to the hospital despite his fragile health.

Mr Moshood in his statement confirmed the senator would still be taken to Kogi for trial

“It will be recalled that, on the 24th April, 2018, at about 1200Hrs, Senator Dino Melaye while in lawful custody of the Nigeria Police Force and being taken for arraignment for Conspiracy and Unlawful Possession of Prohibited Firearms in Court in Lokoja, from Abuja, escaped from lawful custody when hoodlums and miscreants in Two (2) Toyota Hilux Vehicles blocked the Police vehicle conveying Senator Dino Melaye around Area 1 Round About, Abuja and in the process the Senator broke the side glass of the vehicle and jumped out of the Police bus through the window and was rescued from the Police men by hoodlums and miscreants to an unknown destination before he was rearrested at Zankli Hospital in Abuja later in the day on same date. This case was investigated and that is why the senator was arraigned in court today,” the police spokesperson said.

“Meanwhile, the police investigation team re-arrested Senator Dino Melaye today, 2nd May, 2018 after his arraignment at Chief Magistrate Court, Wuse for the pending offences of Criminal Conspiracy and Unlawful Possession of Prohibited Firearms already filed in a court of competent jurisdiction in Lokoja for which he will be arraigned without further delay,” the statement said.

The senator, who recently survived a recall exercise, has expressed concerns about his life and the likelihood of getting a fair trial if he is tried in his state.

i really dont understand why some  nigerians  are calling for the release of this man  when  the police says he has broken the law of the land .  this man has an indictment hanging on his  neck and it is only the court that can determine if his guilty or not and  not the police . if an  ex president in south koria  can be tried and sentence to jail  why would it be different in nigeria ? how would the country move forwad    ?  i have nothing personal agaist the gentle man   but if he broke the law  he should be allowed  to say  yes  he did or not  in  the court of law , what make  DINO  different form other nigerians that have been tried and convicted  for the same offence ?  the court is there to jail him or set him free  ths is how a country can ride off   in-balances

he should be tried to ascertain what he did, if guilty should be locked up for good, to protect innocent people and to send a message to thug assembly to do their work and behave responsibly, if people don't like the conduct of the national assembly then, the assembly should reconstitute, its character and should be found worthy of emulation.

If lawmaker break the law, he should also face with the consequence.

Why is Dino pretending as if he is in coma?
The same Dino that was shouting when he broke his leg at the scene now has to lay on stretcher to court.

Dino broke his leg not his back.

LET US NOT BE DECEIVE WITH ALL THIS FAKE AND USELESS ACTING.
OUR LEADERS SHOULD BE FEARED AND THINK TWICE BEFORE THEY DO SOME THINGS.......THAT IS THE TO RESPECT NIGERIAN.
NOT LIKE PAS 16 YEARS OF PDP WHERE NO ONE CARES AND DO WHATEVER THEY LIKE AND STILL COME OUT BOLDLY DEFENDING IT......THEN NOTHING HAPPENED

.......THAT IS ONE THING I LIKE ABOUT THIS PRESENT ADMINISTRATION..........FEAR OF BEING CAUGHT IN THE ACT

my friend, so far you are the only one making sense..i wonder why Nigerians are like this...if its a common man, will they react like this? he is allegedly complicit in a crime...he should face the music and deal with it
