We are not leaving Dino Melaye’s residence till we arrest him – Police

A statement  by the police spokesman, DCP Jimoh Moshood, said the police operatives are at Melaye’s residence to arrest him over culpable homicide.

DCP Moshood said the operatives will continue to occupy Melaye’s residence until he surrenders himself for arrest.

The Nigeria Police said the personnel currently at Senator Dino Melaye’s residence were there to effect his arrest over a case of culpable homicide.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Melaye and some suspects were accused of shooting a police officer, Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty in Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi.

Moshood said that the offence for which Melaye was being investigated was capital in nature and not compoundable.

Police Have Invaded my House-Dino Melaye claims

He said that the officer was yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack.

The spokesman alleged Melaye had refused to report to the police command in Kogi to answer the charges in spite of the letter written to the clerk of the National Assembly.

“The force will not tolerate attack on its personnel by any individual, no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course,” he said. He said that members of the public would be kept informed on further development in the investigation of the matter.

A combined team of mobile and regular police personnel had laid siege to the Abuja home of Melaye on Friday, December 28.

The Kogi West senator reported the invasion of his house in a thread of tweets via his official Twitter account, @dino_melaye.

This recent statement by the police contradicts their earlier response to Melaye’s claim, DCP Moshood and spokesperson of the Federal Capital Territory police, Manzah Anjuguri, had earlier both claimed to be unaware of the invasion.

Moshood had said: “Why would they enter his residence? I am not aware of such I will make inquiries and get back to you. I will check with the relevant quarters and command.” His colleague, Anjuguri, had also said: “I don’t have any information on that. I am not aware of it.
