Dino Melaye whisked away by security

By Abdulmumin Giwa

Senator Dino Melaye from Kogi state has just been arrested by security officials at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.

The Senator who was on his way to Morocco on a federal government assignment had already checked in and was waiting for his flight when the security whisked him away.

He stated this on his wall on Twitter saying “I have just been arrested at the international wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe airport on my way to Morocco for an official engagement sponsored by the Federal Govt after checking in.”

Responding on his arrest, the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS spokesmen said the arrest was a routine assignment.

It would be recalled that the Senator is facing charges from the police force linking him with supplying of arms to murder suspects which he had since dismissed as political witchhunting.
