Melaye: I Didn’t Flee Nigeria, Police, Kogi Gov Desperate to Kill Me

Share This

The senator representing Kogi West senatorial district of Kogi State,  Dino Melaye, has said he did not flee the country, rather, that the state Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, and the Nigeria Police were planning to kill him. 

Melaye has been accused by the police of allegedly sponsoring thugs to disrupt general election in the state in 2019.

In a statement issued by the senator of which a copy was made available to OUR SOURCE  yesterday, he stated that he ordinarily wanted to ignore the antics of the state governor and the Nigeria Police, which has openly taken side in the state political crisis, “save for the latest but coordinated lies in the garb of exclusive news by the notorious online blackmailer.”

  He noted that he did not flee Nigeria and have no reason to flee “my country leaving behind my family as the online medium wants Nigerians to believe.  “The lies in the online report is nothing but to cause serious disharmony in the Senate and among united majority senators, who are resolute in defending democracy and its institutions no matter whose ox is gored.”

According to him, for the avoidance of doubt, he did not receive any court summon either in person or by proxy in his house or office for him to appear on March 28 as being insinuated by the police regarding the latest allegation against him.

“Last Monday’s stage-managed parade of crime suspects in Lokoja by the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Jimoh Moshood, where a suspect was tutored to implicate me is just a continuation and expansion of the police attempt to have me arrested at all cost and ultimately kill me. 

“The public will recall that on March 1, 2018, when the federal government arraigned me for allegedly giving “false information” to the police in a case of failed assassination plot against me, at the FCT High Court in Maitama, Abuja, SARS operatives from Kogi State Police Command laid siege on the court premises in order to prevent me from enjoying my bail with the intention to kidnap me to Lokoja to be poisoned, although it turned out to be another failed attempt on my life.

“It is worrisome that the police headquarters has got itself entangled in the state political crisis and has taken side.   “It is however bizarre and unprecedented that Moshood will have to travel to Lokoja last Monday in order to act a script written by Bello. 

“A discerning mind will ask that how many times has Moshood travel to Sokoto, Enugu or Lagos State to parade suspects on behalf of a Police Commissioner?

“It has become expedient for me to issue this statement to the public and to let you know that I have taken the matter up with the international community in order to report this undue intimidation and harassment. 

“Let me reiterate here for the umpteen times that no amount of intimidation, blackmail, arrests or threats will stop me from championing the cause of the masses.  However, Moshood in a statement issued recently called on the senator to appear before court in Lokoja next Wednesday to face charges leveled against him.
