The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has urged the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) to treat the controversial Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, with dignity and honour, now that he’s in their custody.
Dino Melaye refused to surrender to the authorities and made several social media posts to taunt and accuse the Police of persecution.
However, after eight days siege in his Abuja residence, the lawmaker finally left his Maitama home to surrender to the authorities after his fellow lawmakers paid him a visit to persuade him to resolve the situation amicably.
Following his surrender, Senator Shehu Sani took to his Twitter page and urged the police to treat Melaye with dignity while in custody and to respect his fundamental human rights.
Distinguished Senator Dino should be treated with dignity and honour and his fundamental rights respected,now that he has reportedly turned himself up to the Police.
