More details are emerging on the arrest and hospitalization of Senator Dino Melaye. It will be recalled that Melaye was arrested by SARS operatives on allegations of gun smuggling and criminal conspiracy.
His fellow senator, Ben Murray-Bruce has revealed on Twitter how the Nigerian police gassed the now ailing Senator Melaye twice.
“Just met with @dino_melaye. Very sad to hear what transpired. Dino is asthmatic, yet while in transit, the police gassed him & he could barely breathe. Second time they gassed him, he had to force his way out of the vehicle. Dino literally escaped death. SAD!”
The police are yet to respond to this accusation but it adds a new twist to the ongoing saga between Senator Melaye and his opponents.
