PHOTOS: See How PDP Members Received Dino Melaye
It was drama at the Nigerian Senate on Wednesday when the popular music video superstar-Senator, Dino Melaye, returned to plenary after one month.
He has been absent from proceedings since he was first arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by immigration officials in April.
That arrest was followed by an arrest by the police before his jump from the police vehicle ended in him spending over two weeks at a hospital.
After addressing the Senate on Wednesday, Senator Melaye left his usual seat in his political party's wing and picked a seat in the area usually occupied by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He did not announce his defection but he said he could no longer find comfort at his usual position.
His move has been described as a technical defection.
This is how the members of the PDP welcomed Senator Melaye who is a member of the All Progressives Congress.
