I’ll Surrender to the Police – Melaye

Following an all night vigil kept by the Police at the Abuja home of Senator Dino Melaye, the embattled senator has announced his resolve to surrender to the Police.

Melaye who represents Kogi West senatorial district in the National Assembly made the announcement via his Twitter handle around 7:11am on Tuesday.

The post reads: “I will make myself available to the police today. My resolve to speak the truth and defend the poor masses of NIGERIA is Total. We shall overcome!!!

It is however, unclear whether the Senator would surrender himself to the Kogi State Police Command in Lokoja or the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

The police had laid siege to his residence in Abuja on Monday after he was stopped from travelling to Morroco by personnel of the Nigeria Immigration Service.

His tweet was later followed by another one which was posted around 8:04am.

It reads: “A man without arm, no security yet you mobilise 150 policemen to invite him. And those who committed Treason are free. We shall not be intimidated or cowed. Struggle continue.”
