BREAKING: Dino Melaye Regains Freedom

Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district, has been released hours after he was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

A witness at the airport disclosed this. The witness said after preventing the lawmaker from boarding his flight, the immigration officials asked him to wait for questioning.

“After this, policemen surrounded the senator and he shouted: ‘Will you carry me by force into the vehicle?'” the witness said.

“The senator was visibly upset and did not hide his disappointment. Many passengers watched the stand off without any intervention. The senator was not manhandled, but after a while, was allowed to leave the airport.”

Melaye had announced his arrest on Twitter, saying he was prevented from embarking on a trip to Morocco.

But Anjuguri Manzah, spokesman of the police in the federal capital territory (FCT), had said he was not aware of the arrest.

“I cannot confirm what you are asking because I am not aware of Dino Melaye’s arrest,” he said

Sunday James, spokesman of the Nigeria Immigration Service, later confirmed the arrest of the senator, saying the agency acted based on instruction.
