Police arrest Dino Melaye in Abuja

Nigerian lawmaker and “democratic evangelist” Senator Dino Melaye says he’s under arrest.

Police declared Melaye wanted after criminal suspects in his home state of Kogi, according to police, named him as a party to their crime.

Melaye was accused of arming criminals and lying about an alleged attempt on his own life.

The senator said he was arrested at Abuja airport while on official duty.

”I have just been arrested at the international wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe airport on my way to Morocco for an official engagement sponsored by the Federal Govt after checking in,” he tweeted on Monday.

Melaye blames his troubles with the police on Kogi govenor Yahaya Bello with whom he seems involved in a battle for political supremacy.
