“I’m Not Hiding Out of Fear, It’s Called Wisdom” – Dino Melaye


Dino Melaye today wished Nigerians a happy new year from his ‘home’ which has been under police siege for some days.

The video Dino Melaye shared came with the caption;

Happy New Year fellow Country men and women. Wish us God’s speed on all sides this year. Amen

This is coming after the Nigerian Police Force vowed to remain at Senator Dino Melaye’s residence until he surrenders.

Yesterday was the fourth day into the siege by the police on the Abuja residence of the Senator. The force had earlier said the lawmaker was wanted for a case of criminal conspiracy, and attempted culpable homicide committed on July 19, 2018.

The police alleged that Melaye and “his armed thugs” attacked police personnel and shot and wounded one Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, who was attached to 37 Mobile Force (PMF) on stop and search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.

A statement on Sunday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said, “The Police operatives with a duly obtained Warrant of Arrest deployed to arrest Senator Dino Melaye in his residence in Abuja will not retreat until Senator Dino Melaye surrenders himself for arrest and investigation.”

A team of policemen had stormed Senator Melaye’s Abuja residence on Friday to arrest him, but Melaye posted on Twitter that he was not at home. The Senator said he will report to the police this week. The police, however, believe he is in the house.
