Melaye In Police Medical Centre, To Challenge Court RulingBy Ayomide Micheal on May 4, 2018 0 COMMENTS
Spokesperson of Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West), Gideon Ayodele, has disclosed that his principal is currently at the Police Medical Center in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
This is following the decision of a magistrate court to remand the lawmaker in police custody for six weeks. Ayodele also stated that Melaye’s lawyers would file fundamental rights enforcement at the Federal High Court, Lokoja, this morning.
The lawmaker spokesperson said the lawyers believe the decision to remand Melaye in police custody was flawed. Ayodele noted that the team would spare no effort in ensuring that Melaye does not spend six weeks.
He said:“It is important that we approach the Federal High Court tomorrow morning.”The police arraigned Melaye before a Chief Magistrate’s Court in Lokoja on Thursday on seven counts of criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of firearms.
