Senator Dino Melaye has surrendered to the Police after eight days under siege in his Abuja residence.
This happened after an Abuja high court on Thursday, refused an ex-parte application presented by Melaye to order the removal of police blockage on his residence.
According to reports, Dino was visited by several senators at his besieged home on Friday, January 4th. The Senators were said to have escorted him to the Police headquarters for a meeting with the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
The Police have been trying to arrest Senator Melaye since December 28th when his house was besieged for attempted murder of a Police Officer in Kogi state.
The Nigerian police in a statement by its spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, had said the senator, alongside his ‘armed thugs’, shot one Danjuma Saliu, a sergeant, in July 2018.
Dino has denied the allegations.
