Police Want to Kill Me – Melaye Cries
Senator Dino Melaye has cried out that the police want to kill him.
In a chat with journalists on Friday, the senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly said no politician has been humiliated in Nigeria like him.
“The same police have been looking for me to kill me. As I speak to you, I have six arraignments in six different courts for one frivolous, framed-up charge or the other,” he said.
“No politician has been so humiliated in this country. Six arraignments. One by the federal government through the office of the attorney-general of the federation and five by the Nigeria police.
“The latest was on Wednesday last week, a fresh arraignment before an FCT high court.”
Melaye, who came under fire recently after his alleged kidnap-escape saga, said he has asked Mike Ozekhome, his counsel, to collect his passport from the police because he does not feel safe.
The embattled senator has been accused of arming a group of thugs for armed robbery and kidnapping in Kogo State.
He is also standing trial for purportedly providing false information on an alleged assassination attempt on his life, and for his attempted suicide while in police custody.
