Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, will be remanded in custody of the Nigerian Police Force till June 11, 2018, after losing his appeal for bail.
Melaye was arraigned for alleged gunrunning at the Magistrate Court in Lokoja, Kogi State, on May 3.
The senator was brought into the court premises in a police ambulance.
Sahara Reporters had earlier reported that Melaye was arraigned before the Chief Magistrates Court, Wuse, Abuja, for criminal conspiracy, causing damage to government property, attempted suicide and escape from lawful custody.
He was granted bail for N90 million but was baited with hospital only to be rearrested to immediately face other criminal charges against him.
