Police Lay Siege On Dino Melaye’s Abuja Home | The Precision


A combined team of mobile and regular police officers on Monday laid a
siege to the Abuja home of Dino Melaye, a senator from Kogi State.

The senator confirmed this through his social media handles. 26 armed officers were outside Mr Melaye’s home when newsmen visited.
It was unclear whether there were other operatives inside. Police vehicles were parked nearby.
The siege came hours after Mr Melaye was detained at the airport and prevented from travelling on an official trip to Morocco. 
But rather than take the senator into custody, the police instead
reportedly distanced themselves from the arrest. Mr Melaye was
subsequently allowed to walk away by the NIS officials. 
The siege marked the second attempt to forcibly arrest Mr Melaye by the police. The first came in early March when officers from special anti-robbery squad laid a siege to the FCT High Court in Maitama, where Mr Melaye had been arraigned and granted bail on separate charges hours earlier.
It was not immediately clear why the police are now at his home. (PT)
