Updated: Masked Policemen allegedly evacuate Dino Melaye from Abuja hospital
It has been reported that Masked persons suspected to be policemen stormed the Police Clinic in Garki, Abuja, taking Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye Friday 11 January 2019.
He was believed to have been taken to Lokoja, Kogi State, for interrogation over the alleged shooting of one Sgt. Danjuma Aliu by suspected political thugs.
It was gathered that Dino was carried out around 2:15 pm Friday in commando style.
ChannelsTV reported that Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Jimoh Moshood, confirmed Dino’s evacuation to DSS Clinic in Abuja to it in a telephone interview on Friday.
The Senator had claimed in an interview with journalists on Monday that he was not fit to travel to Lokoja where the case of culpable homicide was being investigated by the Kogi State Police Command.
He had requested to be transferred to Alliance Hospital or the National Hospital, Abuja, for better treatment; but the Police had rejected the idea, stating that the lawmaker was getting the right treatment at the Police clinic.
Melaye, who has been having a running battle with the Force, was rushed to the clinic for medical attention after he slumped last Friday.
Before he was moved to the clinic after slumping, the lawmaker had barricaded himself in his house in Maitama, Abuja, for eight days, vowing never to give himself up for arrest.
