Senator Dino Melaye on Twitter

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.

The police had on April 3, warned the Senator to appear in court ahead of his arraignment on May 10, 2018.

He is to be arraigned on a case of conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms already filed before a Federal High Court in Lokoja, Kogi State.

Senator Melaye had earlier failed to honour the invitation and a court summon issued him by the Force on March 24.

However, the Immigration officials allege that he was detained based on an order from Interpol.

The police have denied any connection with his arrest.

Also confirming Melaye’s release is the Senator Representing Kaduna Central District, Senator Shehu Sani who took to his Twitter page to announce the news.
