Dino Melaye, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Kogi West senatorial election, has said there are plans to get him arrested next week.
He said the plot is aimed at frustrating his case at the elections tribunal to challenge the victory of Smart Adeyemi, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election.
Adeyemi defeated Melaye in the election rerun ordered by the appeal court.
A meeting in Abuja just concluded that i should be arrested next week for frivolous reasons to frustrate my Tribunal case in the just concluded Helicopter election. Waiting for them…Nigeria belong to all of us.

Melaye had alleged that the APC and Adeyemi rigged the election. He said in another tweet that congratulating his opponent would amount to doing same to an armed robber after a successful operation.
