Dino Melaye Allegedly Kidnapped

Details are still hazy over the alleged kidnap of Senator Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi West by unknown gunmen in the Gwagwalada area of Abuja on Thursday morning.
The Senator representing Bayelsa East in the National Assembly, Ben Bruce, via his Twitter handle, Thursday, disclosed that the Senator, who was arraigned on attempted suicide on Wednesday, has been kidnapped.
In a tweet, Senator Bruce disclosed that Melaye’s brother, Moses informed him of the lawmaker’s abduction.
“I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Lets be on the watch out. Will keep you updated,” he tweeted @benmurraybruce.”
Melaye was among the 14 senators who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday and had a separate court case at a magistrates’court, Lokoja, for alleged gunrunning, Thursday morning.
