Senator Dino Melaye has released a brief statement on his abduction on Thursday morning.
Melaye was reportedly kidnapped on his way to Kogi state from Abuja. This development was confirmed by his friend and fellow senator, Ben Murray Bruce.
In a statement on Twitter on Friday morning, Melaye wrote;
I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!
