Police Stop Senators From Visiting Melaye In Hospital
The Senate has suspended plenary and adjourned sitting till tomorrow, as well as ordered the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to appear before it by 11:00am in connection with the arrest and maltreatment of Senator Dino Melaye.
The lawmakers, some of whom were emotional, took turns at the plenary to condemn the police for what they termed as inhuman treatment of Melaye by security operatives.
The Deputy Majority Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, briefing the lawmakers on the visit, said the police and the hospital had not been feeding Melaye for fear of being implicated.
Na’Allah said the police and hospital’s management asked that any volunteer could feed him, under the provision that they would taste from the food.
However, Some of senators who came to visit Dino Melaye after the adjourned Plenary were refused access to the Senator by the Nigeria Police as armed security have been stationed in and around of the trauma centre of the hospital.
