One story that has made the rounds is that of the abduction of a sitting senator in the nation’s capital, Abuja. We had reported Thursday how Senator Dino Melaye was allegedly overpowered in an attack, Kidnapped by Gunmen in Abuja
However, the lawmaker reportedly fought off the attackers to regain his freedom earlier today. But the story as we noted was incoherent with that earlier given by his aide. In fact, the lawmaker went ahead to tender what he claims is a copy of the kidnap report signed by his brother. He did this to refute the claim by the police that no report was received at any station across the country. See the full story below.
According to reports reaching us, some members of the lawmaker’s family as well as his friends and associates have confirmed the whole incident as a sham.
According to the investigation led by Sahara Reporters, the kidnap was staged to avoid appearing in court in Kogi as he was scheduled to appear. Dino Melaye has severally refused to attend the court case.
He even broke out of a police vehicle which attempted to forcefully convey him. For this he was arraigned in court and granted bail by an Abuja High Court sitting in Apo.
Dino looks like he is in trouble just as the police has commenced an investigation into the incident. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
