Senate Investigates Melaye, Bello, Police Conflict

The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday ordered its committee on Police and Judiciary to investigate and report within 48 hours the issues surrounding Dino Melaye, Yahaya Bello and the Nigerian Police.
Recall that Senator Melaye had last year reported an assassination attempt on his life, fingering Governor Bello and Taofiq Isa to be the masterminds.
He equally alleged that the administration of Bello with one Taofig Isa has brought an unfortunate socio-political paradigm shift in Kogi state.
However, Police on the 19 of March caught and paraded two suspected political thugs with two AK-47 and five pump action guns.
They however alleged that Senator Melaye was the one sponsoring them. A statement Dino denied, saying that it was an orchestrated lie by the Governor and the Police to shut him up, and that he had never seen the arrested suspects.
On the 24 of March the Nigerian Police gave Senator Dino Melaye Tuesday (Today) to appear before a Federal High Court, Lokoja, to answer charges of criminal acts levelled against him, saying violation would leave it with no option than to issue warrant of arrest against him.
In view of these therefore, the Nigerian Senate during the Tuesday plenary ordered its committee on Police and Judiciary to investigate and report to it within 48 hours.
