SARS Finally Arrests Senator Dino Melaye
The latest report on Senator Dino Melaye has shown that the lawmaker from Kogi West Senatorial District has been arrested.
He was arrested this morning by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad at his Abuja residence and immediately taken to the SARS headquarters, Guzape, Abuja.
A source said that the lawmaker was taken to the SARS detention facility located opposite the old Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN junction along the Area 1 expressway.
The SARS detention facility is reputed for imprisoning hardened criminals arrested for theft, murder, cultism and other criminal acts.
During the arrest, which lasted for hours in the senator’s house, it was gathered that Melaye resisted the policemen but the cops had to forcefully carry out the arrest.
In a telephone conversation this morning, Senator Melaye, however, sounded rattled, as background conversation suggested a struggle between himself and some of the operatives after which his mobile lines were switched off.
The senator was stopped by the immigration at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja from travelling to Morocco on Monday.
He was detained by the immigration so that the police could arrest him but the senator escaped through a waiting vehicle.
