Breaking: Senator Dino Melaye Arrested At Abuja Airport

The lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, is said to have been arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja on his way to Morocco on Monday morning.

It was learnt that the senator and other passengers had boarded the plane and the aircraft was about to take off when policemen were said to have stopped the take-off, asking the passengers to disembark from the plane.

Confirming the arrest, the politician, who was declared wanted last month by the Police, took to his Twitter account to disclose that he was on his way to Morocco when he was arrested.

It was not immediately clear which agency carried out the arrest, but Mr Melaye was declared wanted for his alleged involvement in a murder case and provision of support for criminal elements in his home state of Kogi.

“I have just been arrested at the international wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe airport on my way to Morocco for an official engagement sponsored by the Federal Govt after checking in,” he said on Twitter.
