There are fears that the controversial senator representing Kogi West Dino Melaye may have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
This was the indication given by a colleague of Melaye in the Senate, Senator Ben Murray Bruce.
The senator claimed that the younger brother of Melaye, whose name he gave as Moses informed him that Melaye was waylaid by a Toyota Sienna on their way to Kogi for a court case on Thursday morning.
The senator gave the information through his twitter handle, when he wrote, “I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Lets be on the watch out. Will keep you updated.”
Melaye is one of the senators of the APC stock who have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party. He has been in the news for months over allegations bordering on aiding criminals and illegal possession of firearms.
