TENSION!!! We Will Not Retreat, Untill Senator Dino Melaye Surrenders – Nigeria Police Force Boldly Declares

The Nigeria Police Force, has stated that the Police Operatives deployed to arrest Senator Dino Melaye, at his residence in Abuja, will not retreat, until the Kogi Senator surrenders himself for arrest and investigation.


This was made known by the Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. DCP, Jimoh Moshood, in a Press statement, made available to Post-Nigeria, on Sunday night.


The statement reads in full:

Senator Dino is wanted for criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide, committed on the 19th of July, 2018, when the Senator and his armed thugs attacked Police Personnel; shot and wounded Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force, PMF, on stop and search duty, along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa road, in Kogi State.


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.


It is on record that the Police Investigators submitted a Letter of Invitation, dated 23rd July, 2018, signed by the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State Police Command, addressed to the Clerk, National Assembly, Abuja, inviting Senator Dino Melaye to report on 26th July, 2018, at 11:00hrs, at the Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja, to answer to a case of Criminal Conspiracy and Attempted Culpable Homicide against him, under investigation in the Kogi State Police Command. The claim by the Senate President in the Media, that the Police did not submit a Letter of Invitation to the Clerk of the National Assembly, is therefore incorrect, as can be seen on attached letter, with acknowledgment stamp of the Clerk, National Assembly, Abuja, “24 JUL 2018”. Despite this, Senator Dino Melaye bluntly refused to report himself to the Police, till date.


For avoidance of doubt, attached to this Press Release, are the copies of pictures of the shot Police Officer, Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, the Police Invitation Letter, addressed to the Clerk of National Assembly, Abuja, and the Medical Report from the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, Kogi State, confirming the admission of Sgt. Danjuma Saliu into the Hospital for treatment of the gunshot injury, he sustained from the attack by Senator Dino Melaye and his armed thugs, while on Stop and Search duty, along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa road, in Kogi State, on 19th July, 2018.


The Police Officer, Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack, and still under intensive medical care in the Hospital.


The Force, will ensure a thorough investigation into this matter, while making sure that the rule of law prevails, and that no suspect, no matter how highly placed, involved in any criminal matter, escapes justice.
