A Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye has lamented his travails under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government saying he was never persecuted by former President Goodluck Jonathan despite fighting the government.
Senator Melaye condemned his alleged ill-treatment by the Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government stating that he was never maltreated nor framed up fighting the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan.
Sen. Melaye pointed this out in an Instagram post on Sunday while sharing some photographs of himself and some youths protesting against alleged corruption under the former president Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
“I was never framed up for fighting Jonathan. Never arraigned! Aluta continua victoria asata,” he wrote.
Sen. Melaye, who is currently involved in a face-off with the Nigeria Police Force, was reported to have jumped off a police van in Abuja, while being conveyed to Lokoja to face criminal charges.
The lawmaker subsequently developed health challenges and was admitted at the National Hospital in Abuja.
After receiving treatment for some days, the police had taken Melaye to Lokoja, where he was arraigned on a stretcher over alleged unlawful possession of arms alongside two others in Kogi State.
The Kogi Chief Justice, however, ordered the lawmaker to be remanded in police custody and be returned to the National Hospital in Abuja.
However, the Kogi State High Court sitting in Lokoja, on Wednesday granted Melaye bail.
The Kogi State Chief Judge, Justice Nasiru Ajana admitted Melaye to bail in the sum of N10m with one surety. The bail was granted on health grounds.
