Senate President, Bukola Saraki and many other senators have arrived the National Hospital, Abuja to visit Senator Dino Melaye. Melaye had jumped out of a police vehicle conveying him to Kogi on Tuesday. He was hospitalized and rearrested inside the hospital.
The lawmakers, who arrived the hospital at 1:33pm, are currently meeting with the management of the hospital, ahead of a visit to Melaye’s ward.
Earlier, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, while speaking during the Senate’s plenary session on Wednesday, condemned the arrest.
“The people look to the Senate for protection. The average man needs protection just as we do,” Tinubu said.
“If Senator Dino Melaye and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege can be taken away by the police, it destroys the sanctity of this chamber.”
