Police lay siege on Dino Melaye’s house, deny colleagues access to senator

Fierce-looking armed policemen Monday stormed the Abuja residence of senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West senatorial district.

It would be recalled that few hours ago, Melaye was said to have been arrested on his way to Morocco at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport but later found his way back to his house at 11, Sangha street in Maitama, Abuja.

When grilled, the leader of the operation, John Aruna who is in plain clothes identified himself as Assistant Commissioner of Police said tersely that they have terms of engagement to be there. And that further inquiries could be directed to the Force Public Relations Officer, Moshood Jimoh for explanation.

“I’m the leader of this team. We know the terms of our engagement. Direct your inquiries to the FPRO’s spokesman.”

All the entrance and exit of the high brow street where Melaye lives were cordoned off by security operatives.

The embattled senator was said to be inside his house as at the time this report was filed. But some of his aides were seen outside in close observation of the possible action the police may want to take.

But Barrister Frank Tiete and Isah Sanusi, media person of the Amnesty International have condemned the action of the police.

It was said that the present police action may not be unconnected with the allegations of possession of illegal firearms and sponsorship of criminal gang preferred against the lawmaker.

Some senators who made effort to pay a solidarity visit to their embattled colleagues were denied access.
