Senator Dino Melaye on Wednesday was brought on a stretcher to a Magistrates’ Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja amid heavy presence of police officers to answer charges bordering on his alleged escape from a police vehicle in Abuja on April 24, 2018.
The presiding magistrate, Mabel Segun-Bello, granted him bail in the sum of N90m.
Melaye’s lawyer, Mr. Nkem Okoro, told the press that his client met the bail conditions granted by the court but the senator was re-arrested by the police on the court premises.
Melaye laid on a stretcher was produced in court in a police ambulance with registration number NPF2214D.
Over 200 policemen were deployed to the court and they later left the court premises in a convoy which comprised the ambulance conveying Melaye at about 4.20pm.
