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.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki,  also decried that he had not been able to reach the IG since 48 hours, describing it as an insult to the legislature.

According to Saraki, the lawmakers had sent a delegation to the National Hospital Abuja where Melaye was being treated under the watch of policemen.
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.
