The Nigerian Police Force, (NPF) has maintained that it’s operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest.

The police on Friday invaded the Maitama, Abuja residence of a lawmaker representing Kogi West.

The police said its personnel are currently in the residence of the senator to effect his arrest to answer to the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu.

The police in a statement by its spokesperson, Ag. DCP Jimoh Moshood on Friday, alleged that Melaye and his armed thugs on the 19th July, 2018 shot and wounded a police officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.

The Police added that the Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care.

According to Moshood, “The Police investigators have written the Clerk of the National Assembly for Senator Dino Melaye to report at Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja for him to answer to these offences against him under investigation, but he has bluntly refused to report himself to the Police.”

“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest. The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.
