Senator Jumps Out Of Vehicle,Runs Into bush Enroute Kogi
Senator Dino Melaye on Tuesday reportedly jumped out of a police moving vehicle conveying him to Kogi state and ran into a thick bush.
Daily Sun reports that the police operatives also jumped out of the vehicle and gave the fleeing lawmaker a hot chase.
Naija News had earlier reported that the embattled senator from Kogi West is expected to be paraded later this evening among other hardened criminals who implicated him in the crime that necessitated his arrest.
Melaye had been in a running battle with the police since the criminals identified him as their gun supplier.
The Kogi lawmaker was yesterday, prevented from flying out of the country by immigration officers at the Nnamdi Azikwe international airport in Abuja.
He was subsequently arrested and detained by the immigration officers but released few hours later.
Heavily armed security personnel also laid siege on the senator’s Abuja residence before he was eventually arrested Tuesday morning.
