Police To Re-arraign Dino Melaye
It might not be yet uhuru for Senator Dino Melaye despite meeting bail conditions.
Following claims of being held in Police custody, the lawmaker said he might be re-arraigned.
According to reports gathered, the controversial senator will be re-arraigned on Tuesday.
He claimed to have met all bail conditions within the realm of the order by a court for his detention over allegations that his supporters shot a police officer last year in Kogi State.
He added that the police have concluded plans to arraign him before a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court on nine counts on January 22.
The charges, according to him, border on illegal obstruction and resistance to lawful arrest.
On Friday last week, a High Court in Abuja granted the senator bail on health grounds after almost two weeks in police detention.
Senator Melaye alleged that despite meeting the bail conditions which included; presenting three sureties who reside and have property in the nation’s capital, the police have refused to let him go home.
The lawmaker was taken into custody on January 4 after the police laid siege to his Abuja residence for about eight days.
He was declared wanted by the police for alleged criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide which he reportedly committed on July 19, 2018.
