An outspoken critic of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, Senator Dino Melaye has been allegedly abducted by unknown persons on Thursday while he was on his way to Kogi State for a court hearing.

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce disclosed this when he alerted the nation via Twitter that Mr. Melaye, representing Kogi West in the Senate has been abducted by unknown persons.

Murray-Bruce, on his Twitter handle, said Melaye’s brother, Moses Melaye informed him of the abduction.

He wrote; “I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Let’s be on the watch out. Will keep you updated.”

Mr. Melaye, was among the 14 All Progressives Congess, APC, senators who dumped the ruling party for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in a mass exit on “Super Tuesday”.

Apart from being a known opponent of the Buhari administration, Melaye also has a running feud, with the governor of his home state, Kogi, Yahaya Bello, who he had accused of looting Kogi money and not paying workers’ salaries.

Mr. Melaye had more than twice told Nigerians about a plot to neutralize him. And he had once recently survived an assassination attempt on his life.
