Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West at the National Assembly, has been abducted by unknown gunmen.
Melaye’s abduction was confirmed by Ben Bruce, the senator representing Bayelsa East, on his Twitter page @benmurraybruce on Thursday morning.
“I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Lets be on the watch out. Will keep you updated,” Bruce tweeted.
Earlier on Wednesday, Sentor Melaye was arraigned before an FCT High Court in Abuja on a six-count charge bordering on attempted suicide.
