 The senator, who was accused of criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide, surrendered to the Nigeria Police Force on January 4, after the police eight days siege on his Abuja residence.

He was admitted at the police hospital, Abuja where he was receiving care before he was transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) headquarters.

Earlier on, an Abuja high court sitting in Maitama on Thursday, January 17, ordered the police to show cause over its continued detention of Senator Melaye.

Melaye, who has been in police custody since Friday, January 4, approached the court for enforcement of his fundamental right.

Justice Yusuf Halilu gave the order after Melaye’s counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), informed the court that his client has been in police custody since January 4, against what the law stipulated.
