The operatives of the Nigeria Police have arrested Senator Dino Melaye at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport on his way to Morocco.
The lawmaker revealed this via his Instagram page, adding that the police had stopped him from performing the national assignment.
Melaye was in the company of Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and some other senators when the police apprehended him.
The police had earlier declared Melaye wanted alongside four suspects over an illegal acquisition of firearms in Kogi State.
The police arrested the suspects in the course of their investigation but the suspects escaped from the police cell.

Meanwhile, the police said that they had since rearrested the suspects and that the chief suspect, Dino Melaye would have to answer some questions.
