‘Why we moved Melaye to SARS office’ – Police
The police have moved Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, to the federal special anti-robbery squad (FSARS) office in Guzape district, Abuja.
On Friday, the police transferred the senator from their hospital to a Department of State Service (DSS) health facility for treatment after he complained that he was not getting better.
The police hospital had certified him fit for trial.
An associate of the senator told TheCable on Saturday that the next action of the police is unknown.
“They moved him to SARS office in Guzape. The police moved him without any word. We don’t know what they want to do now,” the associate said.
Last week, the senator surrendered to the police following a 8-day siege laid to his Abuja residence.
The police accused Melaye of culpable homicide and alleged that his supporters shot one Danjuma Saliu, a police officer, in Kogi state on July 19.
Jimoh Moshood, police spokesman, said they have a warrant to keep Melaye for 14 days.
“The police investigation team obtained a 14 day remand warrant from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) high court on 9th January, 2019, to keep senator Dino Melaye in police custody for investigation into the case of criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide against him till 23rd January, 2019,” Moshood said.
