Nigeria Police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood has said that policemen invaded the residence of Senator Dino Melaye in Maitama, Abuja on Friday afternoon because he is wanted for attempted culpable homicide, following the shooting and wounding of a policeman on duty by Melaye and his thugs in Kogi state.

Mr. Moshood explained that the police are only in the process of arresting him and will “remain in Senator Melaye’s residence until he surrenders.”

He said, “Three months ago, a letter had been written to the Clerk of the national Assembly to inform Senator Dino Melaye of the need to report to the police in Kogi state and he (Senator Melaye) has refused to do so.

“The Police operatives currently in the residence of Senator Dino Melaye are to effect his arrest to answer to the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.

“The Police Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care.

“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest. The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.

“The Force will not tolerate an attack on his personnel by any individual no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course.”

Senator Melaye had on Friday raised alarm over the invasion of his Abuja home by scores of police operatives.
